On this day, in 2010, legendary batsman AKA God of cricket: Sachin Tendulkar: became the first man in the history of ODIs to break the 200-run barrier. It took him only 147 balls and remained unbeaten throughout the innings. South Africa were the unfortunate opponent while Gwalior crowd found themselves the luckiest on that historic day. With only two months to before his 37th birthday, Tendulkar reached this record-breaking milestone. With the help of Tendulkar’s magnum opus knock India posted above 400 runs on the scoreboard for the second time in three months span and won the match by 153 runs. However, Tendulkar was overtaken by none other than his non-striking partner Virender Sehwag a year and a half later with his 219 against West Indies at Indore. Later, Rohit Sharma bettered it by smashing 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014. Moreover, Tendulkar was the first male cricketer but not the first cricketer to score a double hundred in ODIs as Australian batswoman Belinda Clark did it first in 1997 against Denmark.
