Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is an Indian cricketer widely considered to be one of the greatest batsmen of all time. He is the leading run-scorer and century maker in Test and one-day international cricket. He is the first player to score a double century in ODI cricket. In 2002, just 12 years into his career, Wisden ranked him the second greatest Test batsman of all time, behind Sir Donald Bradman, and the second greatest one-day-international (ODI) batsman of all time, behind Sir Viv Richards. Sachin Tendulkar was a part of the 2011 Cricket World Cup winning Indian team in the later part of his career, his first such win in six World Cup appearances for India. He has been recommended for the receipt of the Bharat Ratna award; in fact, it has been speculated that the criteria for the award of the Bharat Ratna were changed to allow him to receive the award. He is also a member of Rajya Sabha of Parliament of India.
