Sachin Tendulkar's Plethora of Records

In the 4th One Day International cricket match against Australia at Chandigarh, India; Sachin made 79 runs in his innings. Tendulkar got a few important records on his name.

Tendulkar became the highest run-scorer against Australia in one-day internationals when his score reached 23. He surpassed Desmond Haynes' tally of 2,262 runs. Interestingly, Tendulkar needed 13 matches lesser than Haynes to obliterate his record.

Tendulkar's half-century was 84th of his career, which puts him ahead of Pakistan's Inzamam-ul-Haq. Tendulkar has now scored more fifties than any other batsman in ODI history. He already holds the record of scoring most number of centuries.

When his score reached 53, Tendulkar completed his 1,000 runs in ODIs in the calendar year 2007. He is the second Indian after Sourav Ganguly (1,065 runs) and seventh batsman overall to accomplish this feat this year.

Tendulkar has now aggregated 1,000 runs in a calendar year on seven occasions - in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2003 and 2007, which is also another world record. Tendulkar was earlier at level with fellow teammate Ganguly. Wow! Go Sachin Tendulkar Go!!!
