Sachin, Mere Aanka, Tussi Great Ho! Tohfa Kabool Karo!!!

Bangalore: India virtually came to a standstill between 1700 and 1815 hours today as the country's cricketing God Sachin Tendulkar became the first man in limited overs cricket to cross the individual 200-run mark.

Sachin Tendulkar

And who better than Sachin to take away the record for highest individual total in a one-day match from left-handed Pakistani opener Saeed Anwar who made 194 runs 13 years ago against India at Chennai.

Suffice to say that today, life came to a standstill at offices, restaurants, airports and shopping malls across the country as eager fans glued themselves to any available medium from internet to live television to savour the moment when the maestro got to his 200th run.

In fact, Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni got a few "boos" despite smacking the South African bowlers over the ropes as eager fans wanted him to give Sachin the strike so that he could get to 200. What's more, the Master remained unbeaten as he guided India to 401 runs in their alloted 50 overs.

For a man who is past personal cricketing milestones in a 20-year career, it is ironical that every time Sachin Tendulkar gets on the ground he sets one. And today, he set one that may stay for a long time. What was intriguing to many was the manner in which he went about the task.

Starting off as if he had a plane to catch, Sachin blitzed the hapless South African bowlers to all corners while sharing major partnerships with three of the four batsmen who played alongside him. While Sehwag missed out early on, getting out with the score on 25, Sachin built up partnerships with Dinesh Kartik, Yusuf Pathan and Dhoni.

He slowed down only after getting into the 190s when Dhoni suddenly took over the aggressor's role and let his senior partner focus on the record. Sachin's 46th one-day ton which turned into a double ton was studded with three sixes and 25 boundaries. That he managed to make 82 runs in singles tells a lot about both his physical and mental fitness.

Tendulkar, who was robbed of a 200-plus score twice last year, must feel a relieved man to be holding a record in one-day matches that would take some beating. Saeed Anwar's record of 194 was matched by Charles Coventry, a player from Zimbabwe who made the score against Bangladesh and ended up on the losing side.

In a way it is poetic justice that a batsman with most runs in tests and ODIs and nearly the most capped in both forms of the game holds this record as well. While Brian Lara continues to hold the highest total in tests, it must be said that there is no better batsman than Sachin to score a double in the one-day game - an arena that he has lorded over ever since Sachin came out to open the batting against New Zealand in the early 1990s.

Given his achievements, it must be said that Sachin is not Cricketing God... he is Cricket! In the words of Abhishek Bachchan on Twitter: I finally know what God really looks like!! He is about 5"5, Maharashtrian and plays cricket!! Tendulkar Bapa Morya!!!

After 39 years of ODI cricket, Sachin Tendulkar chose arguably the best bowling attack doing the rounds, to eclipse the record for the highest score ever before bringing up the first ever double-hundred in the game's history. The lucky spectators at the Captain Roop Singh Stadium in Gwalior were privileged by one of the most special knocks from Tendulkar's blade, as he batted without any of the shackles he has imposed on himself in the latter part of his career. Nothing could deny the master - be it bowlers, fielders or mix-ups. Dinesh Karthik, Yusuf Pathan and MS Dhoni stood by and admired as Tendulkar unfurled all the shots in his repertoire and more, to take India past the 400 mark.

In the 46th over, with a flick for two past short fine-leg, Tendulkar broke the record for the highest ODI score, going past the 194 made by Zimbabwe's Charles Coventry and Pakistan's Saeed Anwar, and to say that he acknowledged his feat modestly would be an understatement. He didn't raise his bat, merely shook hands with Mark Boucher and simply carried on batting amid the din. Coming from a man who is not known to showing too much emotion with the bat in hand, it wasn't surprising. He reserved his celebrations for the magic figure of 200, which he reached in the final over with a squirt off Charl Langeveldt past backward point. He raised his bat, took off his helmet and looked up at the skies and it was only fitting that one-day cricket's highest run-getter reached the landmark.

Tendulkar underlined his sensational class with a double century in Kanpur

Sachin Tendulkar created history by firing the first double century in one-day internationals as India put South Africa to the sword in Gwalior.

The 36-year-old was in indomitable form as he bludgeoned 25 fours and three sixes in a stunning 200 off 147 balls.

It passed the previous best of 194, set by Pakistan's Saeed Anwar in 1997 and Zimbabwe's Charles Coventry last year.

And it saw India, aided by a fabulous cameo of 68 off 35 balls from Mahendra Dhoni, to a superb 401-3 from 50 overs.

Tendulkar, whose previous best one-day knock was the 186 not out he scored against New Zealand in 1999, is already the leading run-scorer in Test and ODI cricket.
