Tendulkar’s Record is Breakable: Kapil.
Kapil Dev thinks that one day someone will break Sachin Tendulkar’s cricket records as anything can happen in cricket. But this Indian ex-captain might find his prediction wrong in following years.
Tendulkar’s Career in Numbers:
Tendulkar, the greatest cricketer of this time, has made mountain like records in Tests & ODIs. Recently, he has enhanced his collection by achieving the fantastic waku doki 100th international century against Bangladesh in Asia Cup in March 2012.
Mentioning Sunil Gavaskar’s record of 34 Test centuries, Kapil said that when they were playing they thought that would there be any player who can perform better than Sunil Gavaskar? But now they know they were wrong because there are lots of good players than Gavaskar.
Sir Don Bradman missed his average 100th in tests for only 4 runs in his last match against England. But he achieved the rate which is still now unbroken.
But Tendulkar’s achievement might not be reached by anyone as many players losing their interest in Tests & ODIs. It is observed that there is a possibility of ODIs will be on verge of extinction and Tests will be reduced in form. So now think how someone will think about of breaking his 100 centuries record.
Now take a look at ODI hundreds. Tendulkar has 49 ODI centuries and still can increase this as he is not leaving the short version. Next Australia’s Ricky Ponting got 30 centuries but he has already left and now mainly focusing on Tests. The next batsmen are Sanath Jayasuriya (28), Sourav Ganguly (22) and Herschelle Gibbs (21). So we can easily see that there is a huge distance between Tendulkar’s 49 and their records and it seems that they will not be able to cover it in the future.
In Tests after Tendulkar (51) there are Jacque Kallis and Ponting holding 42 & 41 Test centuries respectively. The next are Rahul Dravid (36), Sunil Gavaskar and Brian Lara (both 34) and Steve Waugh (32) but they are already retired. So it is quite impossible for anyone to touch Tendulkar’s records.
The number of matches he played is 188 in Tests and 463 in ODIs which is also higher than any batsman. The next on the list is Jayasuriya having 445 matches but he is also retired. Currently the possible batsman is Mahela Jayawardene who has played 378 games.
In Tests Steve Waugh who played 168 matches still behind Tendulkar. The third batsman is Ponting who has played 165 games, sixth is Kallis who has played 152 and others are Shivnarine Chanderpaul (142) and VVS Laxman (134).
Moreover, Tendulkar has the longevity of playing more than 22 years which is a hard nut to crack for so many players. To faint our celebration of Tendulkar’s mind-blowing achievement and to prove Kapil’s prediction some extraordinary players need to be appeared otherwise our party will go on.
