Tendulkar statistics and links

Filed under: cricket,sport — ckrao @ 11:54 pm

Recently retired Sachin Tendulkar is probably the sportsman who gave me the most total enjoyment over my lifetime. His peak batting period was probably from 1993 to the 2003 World Cup but he came back from injury well to become ICC Player of the year in 2010 at age 37 and after more than 20 years of playing internationally. He has been adored by millions and through all the pressure and expectations over such a long period managed to remain a likeable humble figure. His solid compact batting technique allowed him to flourish in both longer and shorter formats of the game better than almost all players during his time (he played with or against 982 others in international matches!). He also chipped in handily with the ball taking over 150 ODI wickets – Steve Waugh said Tendulkar could spin the ball more than regular spinners and could have taken 100 wickets had he put his mind to it [ref].

Here are his test and ODI career summarised by two graphs. The last 30 innings averages are intended his “form” at the time.

Below are some links collected about his career highlights and statistics, I may add to these over time.
