Sachin Tendulkar honoured with Sportstar Aces Inspirational Giant of Indian Sport

The World Cup win was also a special moment for Little Master Sachin Tendulkar, who got his hands on a World Cup in his sixth attempt.

India's cricketing great Sachin Tendulkar has 100 international hundreds.

The highest run scorer of all time in international cricket. The only batsman to ever accumulate more than 30,000 international runs. One hundred international centuries. The seniormost member of the Indian team that won the 2011 World Cup... The list goes on.

In a career that spanned more than two decades, Sachin Tendulkar represented India in 200 Tests, 463 One-Day Internationals and one Twenty20 International. He scored runs by the thousands, but he inspired people by the millions.

Tendulkar’s contribution to the game is succinctly summed up by the words of Virender Sehwag, with whom the Little Master often opened the batting in the 50-over format: “I have had the best seat to watch his brand of cricket – from the non-striker’s end – and it’s been a privilege to be a part of Indian cricket when he played. He is an inspiration to not just his generation of athletes and fans, but for all the ones to come.”

"We are a sports-loving nation, we don’t play much. The ideal scenario is if we can move from being a sport-loving nation to a sport-playing nation of our choice. That would help us build a younger and healthier India," said Tendulkar on receiving the award.
