Sachin Tendulkar –  it seems that all India will stop to watch Sachin Tendulkar do what he does best…swing a cricket bat.

I don’t know much but I do know a little about Sachin Tendulkar. I am hoping that folk that drop by here to read/watch a cricket match will feel free to add on to my list of things everyone must know about Sachin Tendulkar.

Sachin Tendulkar:

1. is 36-years old and just 5′ 5″ (170cm) tall, proving that dynamite does come in small packages.

2. is also known as the Little Master, Master Blaster, The Master, The Little Champion

3. is the second greatest Test batsmen next to Donald Bradman and second greatest ODI batsman next to Viv Richards. Anybody want to argue?

4. has more centuries in either form of the game than any other batsman.

5. is the highest run scorer in both forms of the game.

6. is the first batsman to score 12,000 runs in test cricket.

7. is the first player to score 10,000 runs in one-day internationals

8. is the first player to cross every subsequent 1000-run mark in ODI cricket history

9. has been honored with India’s second highest civilian award – Padma Vibhushan, and India’s highest sporting honor – Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna.

10. is not a god. I had to put that in there. See Exodus 20:3. But, there might be a couple of hundred million (literally) Indian fans who would differ with me. One of the most popular sayings by Sachin’s fans is “Cricket is my religion and Sachin is my God.”
