Only Ricky Ponting is there who is looking near to him in this run chase, both are the greatest modern cricketers, Sachin Tendulkar of India and Ricky Ponting of Australia, now have come to a stage in their career that they are miles ahead of remaining players of various countries, but mighty close to each other.
What Ricky said about Sachin
“The number of innings of his (Tendulkar’s) I have been able to sit back and watch, I think he is an amazing player. Look at his stats and records and it’s quite incredible for someone to have stayed in the game for 20 years.. He has set benchmarks for guys like me to chase him and get as close as we can. If I had to last 20 years, I would probably be batting in a wheelchair”

Ricky has to work really harder to get pass the milestones and to make update in the record books filled by Sachin, being an Indian Fan, nobody want that Ricky ever would cross the benchmarks fixed by Littlemaster, but if you think positively with the game of cricket, he really can surprise Sachin in near future. Sachin is a global icon, goodwill ambassador for peace, we wish him best of luck for the last double hundred that he scored against Sri Lanka in second test match which ended in a draw, and in the Third and Final test macth, he is looking in good touch with 40* unbeaten with rock solid Virender Sehwag who is also on 97*.
