Sachin Tendulkar is often referred as the god of cricket. The master blaster is one of a kind and carried the Indian batting on his shoulders throughout the 90s and early part of 2000s. When he was sealed as a finished product, he came back strongly in the twilight of his career to ensure that there wont be any player like him before or after him.
The little master made his debut in 1989 and went on to play test cricket for the next 23 years and broke various records in the process. He is the leading run getter in tests and also has most number of centuries by any player. He is not only the leading run getter in tests but also leads the charts for most runs in 50 overs as well. He is head and shoulders above the others in the list and there are no presently active cricketers who are even remotely challenging him for that #1 spot in the list of most centuries in tests.
