Sachin Tendulkar established himself as the greatest of all Indian cricketers as he became the first batsman to score 50 hundreds in international cricket. Tendulkar has a skill - a genius - that only handfuls have possessed. Sachin Tendulkar has made learning a habit. He picks up every cue, dominates the opposing attack sooner or later, and nearly always makes a hundred. His reading of the game and his manifold varieties of bowling, have shown the same acute intelligence. He is not only a favorite of all cricket critics but all cricket fans as well. He even surpassed Sunil Gavaskar, as the leading century-maker in Test cricket with his 35th three-figure score in November 2005.
