Sachin Tendulkar is a name synonymous with Indian cricket. The most capped player in tests and ODIs also ended as the highest run-getter in both formats.
He managed to score a hundred international hundreds, including the highest number of centuries individually as well, across both formats.
The first to score a double-hundred in ODIs, he also has the dubious distinction of being the first batsman ever to be given out by the third umpire.
Sachin ruled the hearts of cricket lovers and bid adieu to the game in 2013 after a stellar 24-year international career.
