Why Sachin Tendulkar is called God of Cricket

Cricket is somewhat like a religion and moreover an emotion altogether in India. You pick our every nook and corner in the country and you will find kids playing cricket and wanting to follow it ahead. The popularity has increased over the years, and when cricket pops up there is one name always taken in the same breath ‘Sachin Tendulkar’.

The ‘God of Cricket’ in India and an icon of the game. No one else can play the straight drive with the same elegance as the Little Master. No one else will rule the game like he did; the first batsmen to score a double ton in ODIs and the first cricketer to slam 100 international tons.

Apart from his attitude and personality he has created unthinkable records in the field, with a career spanning 24 years, the Master Blaster has made a place in every Indian’s heart. Also, in 1992, Tendulkar became the first overseas player to represent Yorkshire, which before Tendulkar joining the team, never selected even the English players.

He is always calm on the field and usually does his bat do all the talking. The achievements and records created by Tendulkar is something anyone can only dream of.
