    Go for 50 Tendulkar

    Gavaskar told Tendulkar to not stop at 40 and go for 50. Tendulkar agreed he would.

    Woooooooooooooooo

    Every team plays Bangladesh. Now if only they could get as many centuries as Sachin, you'd have a point.

    Inspite of his bad form and all the flak that he is getting on account of that, this is uncalled for.

    This is his first ever test hundred against BD. In fact, before this innings he had scored a total of 18 runs against Bangladesh. What you are saying may not mean but appears to imply that Sachins great record is on account of runs scored against the minnows of the game. You know for sure that this is not the case,

    Inspite of clearly being far below his best, he has this year, before this one, two scores, one his highest and the other an unbeaten near double, against two of the best bowling attacks in the world. If this is what he could do when clearly not at anywhere near his best, then to ridicule his batting shows a lack of appreciation of all that is good about the game.

    If one set of supporters here goes about screaming and trying to prove that Sachin is not one of the greatest batsmen the game has produced and the other goes around trying to do the same to Warne or Murali the bowler, it doesnt change anything or do any damage to the standing these legends are going to enjoy in the history of the game. What it does do , however, is to show in very poor light the objectivity of the debating parties or their knowledge of the game. In either case, it doesnt do them any credit.

    Sachin, Warne and others dont need our certificates to cement their place for posterity. But surely we can do justice to this forum by raising the calibre of debate above the biased , nay childlike, denial of facts that it seems to get reduced to at times.

    Sachin actually scores a 100 against Australia in one of every three matches he plays against Australia, since he's scored 7 centuries in 21 matches against Australia. Fantastic record.

    Yeah. Tendulkar's place among one of the greats of the game does not reduce in any manner.

    Great record.

    Only Lara has a similar record, with 8 hundreds in 27 matches.

    BTW i wasnt having a go at Sachin, more at the standard of Bangladesh, its his job to go out and score the runs whatever the opposition.

    Also though it was obviously a good innings, its a shame that it has replaced the 241* against Australia as his top score IMO

    That was a fine knock. But his 100 against Australia at the MCG in 1999 (Brett Lee's debut) was his best I have seen and probably one of the best he has scored IMO.

    I think plenty of people have taken skd's comment out of context.
    No-one in their right mind would question Tendulkar's status as a fantastic batsman. IMO the best since West Indies of the 50s and 60s (Weekes, Walcott, Sobers).
    However, it would be equal folly to suggest that this innings, against a Test-side who don't deserve the paper their status is printed on, compensates for his recent mostly horrid form. If he goes on for much longer like he has been recently (though it has now become apparrent to me just how much of a part the injury may have played in it) you've got to ask serious questions about whether he can make 40, let alone 50, Test-centuries.
    If he returns to his best touch (and I don't doubt he's capable of it) he can make it beyond question, but we've got to wait for more evidence before saying he has.

    What's even more fascinating, is the fact that in the last 6 (since he missed the first 2 in India) tests he's played against Australia, he's only scored one ton. So before the 2003/04 test series in Australia, his record was 6 in 15. Just shows how good he was in the 90s and early 2000s.

    To be honest i dont think he will play for long enough to get to 50 test centuries. I do think that getting to 40 is a mere formality though.

    If he plays till 2010, he will get 50 test tons and 50 ODI tons.
