1. Sachin Tendulkar, the father of all records
If we start stating the records held by the so-called god of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar, then we might end up writing an article wholly and solely on it. To name a few, Sachin is the only cricketer to score 100 centuries in international cricket even though he has got out in the nervous nineties 28 times. The right-hander has also played the most number of international matches (664) and has scored the maximum number of runs (34,357) at an average of 48.52 and has won the most number of Man-of-the-Match awards (79) as well. Sachin was also the first batsman to score a double-century in ODI cricket.
