October 21, 2012                8:01 am

It may sound positively monotonous after a 23 year journey littered with milestones, but Sachin Tendulkar is on the verge of yet another record. And this, yet again, has to do with centuries.

In international cricket Tendulkar is already far ahead of any other man in the history of the game in terms of centuries. He stands head and shoulders above the rest in Test cricket, and, at least waist above in One-Day Internationals. By a simple corollary, the total number of international hundreds also belongs to him – and this total reached a century of its own after a prolonged wait.

However, as the master batsman walks back into the long neglected arena of Ranji Trophy, he finds himself just three short of the national record for the highest number of First-class centuries. Sunil Gavaskar finished his illustrious career with 81 from 348 matches. Tendulkar’s tally currently reads 78 from 294 outings.

 

The English monopoly

 

The record for First-class cricket centuries has traditionally been an English monopoly. With the gamut of county cricket that used to be played, it is hardly surprising that most of the leaders on the all time list are from England.

Jack Hobbs heads the pack with a mindboggling 199 hundreds from as many 834 matches! WG Grace got 124 in 870.  The county season saw numerous teams take on each other more than once every year till not long back.

Hence, among the 25 batsmen who managed a century of First-class centuries, 21 are English. Of the four others, Viv Richards, Zaheer Abbas and Glenn Turner spent a large part of their careers in the county circuit, playing 507, 459 and 455 First-class matches in their respective careers.

Of course, the one remaining batsman in the list got there because of a rather incurable habit of scoring hundreds. The great Don Bradman managed 117 in his career, in just 295 matches.

 

The great Indian batting leaders

 

Among the Indians, who play distinctly less First-class cricket than those engaged in the county game, there are seven who have scored more than 50 hundreds.

Unsurprisingly, these seven names would be on most lists of great Indian batsmen.

VVS Laxman 265 433 19520 51.5 54 97 8.02 2.87

 
As mentioned, Tendulkar is just three away from Gavaskar’s record, and has played 54 matches less than the original Little Master.

A closer scrutiny of the numbers reveals further differentiators between him and the other men on the list.

In spite of spending most of his career away from the vastly easier arena of First-class cricket, more often engaged in battling the more lethal bowlers of Test cricket, Tendulkar is still ahead in a number of areas.

A monstrous 65.38% of his 78 First-class hundreds have come in Test matches.

And even though he has played far less non-Test First-class matches than the other Indian batsmen in the list, Tendulkar still ends up being way more frequent in scoring centuries (one in every 5.99 First-class innings) and fifties (one in every 2.47 First-class innings).

These are further signs of his unwavering quality and consistency at the highest level.

For hundreds of millions of cricket-crazy Indians, 39-year-old Sachin Tendulkar is a god. And on Thursday, this god was nominated as a member of parliament.

“God Has a New House”, declared India’s leading daily, The Times of India on Friday about the entry of the reigning superstar of world cricket into the Rajya Sabha, or the House of Elders, one of two Houses in the Indian parliament.

As fans celebrated the elevation of the soft spoken, curly haired “master blaster”, TV shows, twitterati and analysts asked one sobering question: Will this god clean up India’s politics? Or will the corrupt cesspool of Indian politics muddy the unblemished hero?

Ten teams, from 10 countries and regions, including Australia, India, South Africa and the West Indies, play international cricket, a game that is followed by more than a billion people worldwide. Since his first international game in 1989, Mumbai-based Tendulkar has broken every batting record and set some that now appear unreachable anytime soon.

But what surprised his fans is that Tendulkar has not shown any political inclination until now. He has stayed squeaky clean in a game marred by controversies of rowdy behavior on the pitch, match-fixing bribe scandals and wild partying. He is apolitical, low profile, measures every comment and rarely speaks about anything beyond the game.

Indians who are used to seeing unruly scenes in parliament in recent years — shouting matches, wads of bribe money being displayed, copies of bills torn up and lawmakers jostled — asked if Tendulkar would be allowed to speak freely in the House. And if he does speak, whose issues will he raise? Will the man who owns a red Ferrari speak for the poor?

Best selling novelist Chetan Bhagat tweeted his congratulations: “My only suggestion. Consider taking your bat to parliament. You never know when you might need it.”

Tendulkar is the first active sportsperson to enter the Rajya Sabha, which also has nominated distinguished artists, poets and Bollywood actors. The Rajya Sabha can have up to 250 members, 12 of whom are nominated by the president of India. The nominated members “are persons having special knowledge or practical experience in respect of such matters as literature, science, art and social service,” according to the Indian constitution.

Some politicians hoped Tendulkar’s political debut will stir the apathetic Indian youth to pay closer attention to parliament and politics.

Derek O Brien, a lawmaker, said on television that his daughter wants to watch parliamentary proceedings now.

Others were not so upbeat. Social commentator Suhel Seth said that the House of Elders should not become a Madame Tussauds Wax Museum for celebrity sightings.

Sachin Tendulkar
Thursday, 24 June 2010 06:45 UK

India’s cricket star Sachin Tendulkar has been given the honorary rank of a senior officer by the Indian Air Force.

Tendulkar was conferred with the rank of group captain in recognition of his “glorious achievements as a cricketer and sports icon”.

The 37-year-old cricketer holds the world record for most hundreds in both Tests and ODIs in a career spanning over 20 years.

He has been consistently voted as India’s biggest icon over the years.

Tendulkar, who is presently out of India, said the award was a “great honour”.

“As an Indian, I am very proud to be associated with this dynamic force and I shall do my very best to be a brand ambassador for the Indian Air Force.”

A prodigy as a youth, his century as a 19-year old on an ultra-fast wicket in Perth is often regarded one of the best innings ever to have been played in Australia.

He was only 16 when he made his Test debut in 1989 and scored his first test 100, a match-saving innings against England at Old Trafford, a year later.

Tendulkar was regarded by the late Sir Don Bradman as the one batsman of the modern era who most reminded him of himself.

A tremendous performer in the one-day arena, Tendulkar is also the highest scorer and century-maker in that format.
