Sachin's Double Hundred in 2nd ODI against South Africa!
If any cricketer deserved to get a double hundred in ODIs, it was Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar. And today was the day, ordained by Lord Almighty, when Sachin accomplished the milestone. Today he has become the first person on planet Earth to have scored 200 in ODIs. That too, against South Africa! And what style! Hitting 25 fours, he now holds the world record for most number of 4s in a 50 over match, a record that was held by Sanath Jaisurya (?) with 24 fours. His 200 was instrumental in helping India to post a mammoth total of 401 runs against South Africa in the second 1-day match that was being played at Gwalior. India went on to win the match by a margin of 153 runs. But this match will be remembered for the scintillating knock of 200* by the maestro. Truly he is the best ever! Better than Bradman himself. A true genius and humble to the core!
