Sachin Tendulkar completes destiny to become greatest

India’s Sachin Tendulkar completes destiny to become greatest Test run scorer of all time

If ever a destiny was writ in stone it was that Sachin Tendulkar would one day become Test cricket’s leading run-scorer.

Ever since he made an unbeaten 326 in a school match, supreme greatness has been predicted and now, on the first day of India’s second Test against Australia in Mohali, that karma has finally come to pass.

Having failed to break the record in Bangalore, Tendulkar needed to wait until the first ball after tea to exceed the 11,953 runs made by Brian Lara. Needing 15 at the start of his innings, he passed his old rival with a guide for three to third man off the relatively unknown seam bowler Peter Siddle, hardly a box office combination with which to crack cricket’s blue riband feat.

Tendulkar‘s celebrations, a couple of glances to the heavens, no doubt to thank his peers in the vast pantheon of Hindu gods, were more muted than those around him. Otherwise it was firecrackers and a standing ovation from the adoring crowd and handshakes all round from the Aussies.
