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.
