India captain Virat Kohli is among the top three cricketers from the country to have the most number of matches against Australia at One-Day Internationals (ODIs).
The International Cricket Board (ICC) took its official Twitter account and revealed the top three batsmen who have recorded the most number of runs in a 50-over format against Australia.
Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar leads the list with a total of 3,077 runs in 70 ODIs he has played against Australian teams in his illustrious cricket career. The legendary cricketer also beat Australia for nine centuries and five and a half centuries.
The master blaster was followed by Indian opener Rohit Sharma, who had a total of 2,208 hits on his account against Australia including eight centuries and half a century.
Kohli completed the top three list with 1,910 runs averaging 54.57 in a 50-over against the Aussies. The Indian captain also scored eight tonnes and as many as fifty against them.
“Most nominations for India against Australia in ODIs: 3077 – Sachin Tendulkar, 2208 – Rohit Sharma, 1910 – Virat Kohli. Will the Indian captain hit a record 2000 run against Australia in the upcoming #AUSvIND ODI series?” ICC tweeted.
The 32-year-old captain will now be looking to get past the 2000 mark in the next three ODI series matches against Aaron Finch’s side, starting November 27 at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
Kohli will also be looking to break Tendulkar’s record as the fastest hitter to score 12,000 runs in 50-overs cricket.
Kohli, who has recorded a total of 11,867 runs in 239 innings so far, has only 133 runs to reach the landmark. Meanwhile, Hendulkar needed more than 300 innings to get past the 12,000 runs in a 50-over format.
On a related note, Sharma has been rested for upcoming limited-overs matches after repeated hamstring injuries forced him to miss most of the second half of Mumbai Indian’s successful campaign in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League.
Things didn’t go according to plan for Tendulkar, as he was stopped 15 runs by another Waqar Younis debutant against Pakistan on his debut. In the fourth match of the same series, Little Tuan showed the whole world why he was chosen to represent India at such a young age. It was a tense match, with India trying to save the game as Tendulkar struck alongside Navjot Singh Sadhu in the middle and a sharp guard from Waqar struck the 16-year-old. There was a deep wound and Sachin started bleeding, which made him dazed. Young Sachin stood up in a split second, splashed water on his face and slammed the next ball for four.
1⃣ historical day 2⃣ cricket genius#Today in 1989, India’s legendary hitter @achin and the bowling jewel of Pakistan @ wayoyo made their Test debut in Karachi.
It felt like full circle in his cricket career when Tendulkar went for hitting on the same date, when he made his debut, on 15 November 2013. The Master Blaster played his final Test match against West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. In his last international ining, Tendulkar managed 74 runs before becoming leader of Narsingh Deonarine. India, under the leadership of MS Dhoni, went on to win the match by one inning and 126 runs, providing the perfect farewell to the greatest batsman to ever play.
Babar Azam made 65 off 53 before Karachi Kings sealed the Super Over victory.
After a hiatus of nearly eight months, The Pakistani Super League is making a resounding comeback as King Karachi suffers a late fainting in what is a fairly smooth running chase, and stumbles their way into Super Over. However, Sherfane Rutherford and Mohammed Amir saved the day and led them to the PSL final for the first time.
Sohail Tanvir, who made no mistake in the two innings, went wrong in Super Over as Rutherford destroyed four and six of them in Super Over 13 times. Multan Sultan is still on the hunt with experienced Rossouw and Bopara to fight, but Amir nailed him perfectly to help his team in the end.
For a long time in pursuit of a total under par 141/7, it looked like King Karachi would slide behind a solid bowling performance complimented perfectly by Babar Azam’s classy, stroke-filled 65.But Tanvir, the cameo pushed Multan Sultans into 141 / 7, hit a superb double in the 17th minute to bring the run-chase to a halt.
The pendulum swings frantically as Imad Wasim still keeps the hopes of his team alive even after a flurry of dismissals at death. He chased Tanvir in the 19th round to reduce his equation from 19 of 12 to just 7 of the last 6, but Mohammed Ilyas held back his nerve to drag the game into Super Over.
Asked to hit first on the two-step pitch at the National Stadium in Karachi, Multan Sultans had a bad start as they lost three of their top four – inside the PowerPlay over. Amid the collapse, Multan opener Zeeshan Ashraf was offered a reprieve at the end of the fourth, but was unable to make the opponent pay as he fell while trying to break the shackles right after PowerPlay, hiding away Imad Wasim.
Experienced Bopara and Khushdil Shah began dragging their team out of the mess, taking them from 40 for 4 in seventh to 78 for 4 in 12, including 14 runs in which Wayne Parnell was on the receiving end of Bopara’s onslaught. Khushdil was also trying to move forward, which resulted in his goal catching up when Arshad Iqbal used a clever change of pace to produce an untimely pull that shot straight at the deep square leg midfielder.
A brief pause followed, before Shahid Afridi managed to make an effort to deposit the ball from Iqbal into the stands in the 17th minute. But as always, Afridi took another big blow on the next delivery when Iqbal took over his pace. As a result, Afridi’s big blow fell to Alex Hales for a long time. To add to their woes, Multan lost Bopara above 18th and put them at risk of finishing with a severe sub-par total. But, Tanvir goes a step higher with his six punch prowess. He pursued Parnell and finished with 25 * off 13 as Multan hit 141 for 7.
It always looked like Multan was around 15-20 short of time when Azam hit his class in hot pursuit. Although Sharjeel Khan was sacked early, Azam and Alex Hales made a smooth transition towards recovery, taking the team to 46 for 1 at the end of PowerPlay. It took a bizarre sack at 10 ends to end the partnership – Azam hit a straight drive that ricocheted off bowler Khushdil Shah’s hands and tapped the stump at the non-striker’s end, catching Hales short of the fold. But Azam didn’t let that affect the task at hand as he beat Shahid Afridi for the top six in the next sequence.
Iftikar Ahmed was slow to start and was unable to get his attention before Afridi fired him to give Multan an advantage. But with Azam still there, halfway through his century, King Karachi still wields the ace. In fact, the equation depends on Karachi having to score the same number of runs in the last six overs, as they did the first six – 46.
But as it turns out, Tanvir caused Harakiri to extend the game beyond the stipulated 40 limit, but King Karachi still ended the night as the happier side.
Short Score: Multan Sultan 141/7 in 20 overs (Ravi Bopara 40, Sohail Tanvir 25 *; Arshad Iqbal 2-21) series with King of Karachi 141/8 in 20 overs (Babar Azam 65, Imad Wasim 27 *; Sohail Tanvir 3-25). Karachi Kings won Super Over.
On November 15, 1989, a child was 16 years old Sachin Tendulkar walk out to hit, with India staggered on 41/4 in the backyard of sworn enemies Pakistan.
Only in his first international match did the precocious teenager face one of the scariest fast bowling ranks in world cricket at the time – Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram and Imran Khan.
It is thought, Tendulkar had an uncomfortable stay in the wrinkles before being finally cleared by the in-swinger of Waqar Younis, another debutant in the game, when he was 15 years old.
During the series, Sachin Tendulkar lasts 487 balls and is sent out six times. He managed to hold on to a crease of more than 80 balls per inning on that tour, despite facing Imran Khan and co. in their own backyard, which is great for a 16 year old.
Sachin Tendulkar has announced his arrival on the international stage, and no one will look back from there as Little Tuan will continue to captivate audiences around the world while scoring goals and making abundant records along the way.
31 long years after first walking out to defend India, Sachin Tendulkar remains the nation’s pride and has created its niche in the country’s rich history of cricket history.
The children plucking cricket sticks continued to imitate Sachin Tendulkar’s behavior. It was he who gave tire manufacturers – MRF – an identity crisis, such as the impact of Sachin Tendulkar.
The master blaster scores goals in every country he visits and thwarts every bowling attack he faces with an elegance and composure no one else can match.
The way he destroyed the best opposition attacks was time and time again unmatched. Sachin Tendulkar was the lone batter and savior for the Indian cricket team on many occasions.
The pinnacle of Sachin Tendulkar’s career undoubtedly came at the 2011 Cricket World Cup, which India won at home under capable leadership. Ms. Dhoni.
Five of Sachin Tendulkar’s unbreakable records in international cricket
Tendulkar’s extraordinary career transcends numbers; Shouts of ‘Sachiiiiiin, Sachiiin’ still ringing in his fans’ ears eight years after he retired from the game.
Nevertheless, Sachin Tendulkar broke nearly every major record in international cricket during his 24-year career. On that note, let’s take a look at five similar unsolved records.
# 1 Mostly runs on Tests as well as on ODI
Sachin Tendulkar is an absolutely run machine. Regardless of the format, the little lord dominated the best bowling attacks for most of his career.
He likes hitting for hours, especially in Test matches, where he’s racked up some incredible numbers. Tendulkar ended his 200-match career in whiteball cricket with a record 15,921 runs to his name, doing so with an average of 53.71.
Sachin Tendulkar is a machine that runs on ODI too. He was the first hitter to score two hundred and twice in that format. Little Master juggles amazing numbers in a 50-plus game format; he scored 18,426 runs and 49 centuries in 463 games, doing so with an impressive 44.83 average.
# 2 Most of the Test century
Sachin Tendulkar has scored 51 centuries in the longest running game format, which is astonishing. His favorite opposition is Australia, against whom the masters gathered 11 centuries in 39 games while scoring 3630 runs at an average of 55.
Tendulkar scored 29 of the 51 tests in hundreds outside India: 17 of them against South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia.
These numbers prove beyond that Sachin Tendulkar isn’t just a house lane bully. He is also able to dominate bowling attacks in all conditions.
# 3 Longest ODI career
Sachin Tendulkar played international cricket for 24 years, which in itself is a huge problem. But this is not a record, as several other players have had longer careers.
However, neither of them came close to Tendulkar’s longevity when it came to ODI cricket. Sachin Tendulkar’s 50-over career spanned a staggering 22 years and 91 days, with players squeezing runs and abundant records in the short game format.
# 4 Most runs in World Cup history
Sachin Tendulkar featured in six World Cups for India. He played his first match at the mega event in 1992 and finally won the trophy in 2011 at his home, Wankhede stadium, in his last appearance at the global tournament.
As he has done throughout his career, Sachin Tendulkar also set a record at the World Cup. He scored 2,278 games at six World Cups, with an astonishing average of 56.95.
Sachin Tendulkar has scored six centuries and 15 and a half centuries in the competition. Perhaps, not surprisingly, his 241 four at the 50th World Cup is also a record.
# 5 Most Test Matches
Sachin Tendulkar went on to play a staggering 200 Test matches during his illustrious cricket career; no other player has played more than 168 (Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting).
Its 200th game, Tendulkar’s last match of any format in international cricket, was against West Indies at the Wankhede stadium in 2013.
In the contemporary era, this seems like a record that is almost impossible to break. With ODI and T20 cricket growing in popularity, there are fewer Tes matches being played now, which means that Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most Test matches could remain unchallenged for a while.
KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf assess the Indian batting ranks Sachin Tendulkargenerations higher than those led by the current Virat kohli, said that the quality of bowlers at that time was better than it is today. Yousuf, himself a legendary hitter, also considered Tendulkar to be the most complete hitter of his time, better than the likes of Brian Lara and Ricky Ponting. “Kohli, Sharma, Pujara, (KL) Rahul are all quality batsmen but if I compare, the Indian batting (line-up) Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Laxman, Ganguly is better, “said Yousuf. “You don’t have that bowling quality nowadays, cricket has changed a lot and things are different now,” he said in an interview. Speaking of Tendulkar batting, Yousuf said, “When I played for Pakistan, there were a lot of great batsmen at that time like Brian Lara, Pointing, Hayden, but I always felt that Tendulkar was in every way the most complete batsmen.” He said Indian bowling was not very strong when he was playing compared to current attacks, but that batting was above standard. Yousuf, 46, who played 90 Tests and 288 ODIs between 1998 and 2010, said as he enjoyed watching. Rohit Sharma, he always felt that Kohli was more serious, committed and hardworking. “Kohli is very committed, which is why he is so successful and he’s been running in every cricket player’s country. I feel the captain only makes him a better player.” He also feels it is unfair to make comparisons between Babar Azam and Kohli as the current India captain has more experience and exposure. “Kohli has played more cricket than Babar who has only about three to four years of exposure in international cricket,” said Yousuf who has scored 7530 Test runs with an average of 52.29. “But yes, if you asked me to make a comparison based on where Kohli stood after the same number of games Babar played, I would say Babar has done better.”
