Sachin Tendulkar is still known as a God of cricket for his excellent performance in Test and ODI cricket. His achievements in cricket speak much about his commitment and talent. His longest career led to numerous advances in India’s cricket.
Even though he didn’t have the greatest success as a captain, his performances as a player were reason enough for his fans to celebrate. He might not have been able to accomplish all of these milestones as a captain, according to many legendary cricketers. It makes sense because most batters handle pressure better while acting as a player than a captain.
We can also comprehend how challenging it was to lead the Indian team at that time. There were many alternatives for BCCI to name a new captain because there were so many legends.
They opted for Sourav Ganguly, which proved very well for Indian cricket. Hence, Sachin focused on his cricket as a player and achieved milestones and records that might not have been achieved.
After 2000, when he began consistently scoring centuries, his actual career began. His fans and BCCI noted that and supported him as a player to achieve milestones. Yes, he achieved 100-century record in cricket. This was why his fans started calling him master blaster and the God of cricket.
