ON THIS DAY: Sachin Tendulkar smashed the first 200 in ODI history

On 24th February 2010, Sachin Tendulkar broke the barrier of 200-run mark in limited overs cricket and became the first batsman to achieve the feat.

India were playing South Africa in Gwalior when Sachin entered record books. The former-Indian captain scored 200 off 147 balls, smashing 25 fours and three sixes.

He remained unbeaten on 200 runs which is Sachin’s career best ODI score.

India went on to score 401 at the loss of 3 wickets and eventually won the match by 153 runs.

Tendulkar broke the record set by Pakistan’s Saeed Anwar who scored 194 runs against India way back in 1997 and this score was equalled by Zimbabwe’s Charles Conventry in 2009 who scored an unbeaten 194 against Bangladesh.
