Entire career of Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is filled with records in every cricket genre whether its test match, ODI, or World Cup. The 47-years old cricketer has started playing cricket at national levels at 16 and broke record of Sunil Gavaskar in 2005.
The God of cricket, Sachin holds several records such as cricketer with Longest ODI career, Most ODI centuries, Most 90s in career, and many more. However, Virat became the second after Tendulkar to score fastest 22000 international runs. But one title is still far from him i.e. Cricketer with Most International centuries in Test.
