As Sachin Tendulkar is all set to complete two decades of distinguished international career this Sunday, November 15, 2009, here is a complete list of his fabulous world records and also a low down on landmarks which has eluded him.
Tendulkar's world records
Playing for his school Sharadashram against St. Xavier's at the Azad Maidan in February, 1988, he was associated in the then record unbroken stand of 664 runs with Vinod Kambli for the third-wicket. Both players remained unbeaten on 326 and 349 respectively.
He scored a hundred (100*) for Mumbai against Gujarat at Mumbai in 1988-89 season on his first class debut, to then become the youngest to do so on debut in Indian first class cricket and then the second youngest to score a hundred at the age of 15 years & 232 days.
