Sachin Tendulkar famous for being voted as the greatest male striker of the 21st century Test by a team of analysts and fans of Star Sports, praising former Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara, who gave Master Blaster a fight. The comment panel includes VVS Laxman, Irfan Pathan, Aakash Chopra and others, as former cricket players in India continue Tendulkar for his major role in Indian cricket.
Gavaskar said in a video which was uploaded by Star Sports that this was strong. Both Kumar Sangakkara and Sachin Tendulkar are symbols of this game but the vote, which won the biggest Test batsman in the 21st century, is fellow Mumbaikar Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.
This is a great honor for Tendulkar, who retired from international cricket eight years ago in 2013 and played with some of the best strikers who have ever enjoyed the game, including Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis, Rahul Dravid, Alastair Cook and others. With 15921 runs, he remains the highest scorer in Test cricket history and his 51 hundred are also the highest scorers in the format. The man next to him, Kallis, is six hundred years behind. Sangakkara, with 38 tons, is fourth on the list and is sixth on the list of best runners in the Tests.
Tendulkar, the former captain of India, started playing the Test at the age of 16 against Pakistan. At 17 years and 107 days, Tendulkar hit his 100th birthday, making him the youngest cricket player to sign for India’s Test ton, a long standing record. From there, Tendulkar would be on his way to the monarchy, spending centuries in the difficult conditions of South Africa and Australia, when the world recognized him.
In 2002, in the middle of his career, Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack recorded Tendulkar as the second highest scorer in the Test of all time, behind Don Bradman, and the second largest ODI batsman behind Viv Richards. He also won the 2010 Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy of the game cricket at the ICC awards.
Tendulkar is the recipient of all sports awards in India, including the Arjuna Award, Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna – India’s highest honor of sports – iPadma Bhushan, iPadma Vibhushan and the largest – Bharat Ratna.
