Great Honour for Cricket Lovers in India: Now Sachin Tendulkar Joins ICC Cricket Hall of Fame

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-07-19

Indian batting icon Sachin Tendulkar has been inducted into the International Cricket Council's Hall of Fame alongside South African pace legend Allan Donald.

 

Joining Tendulkar and Donald in the Hall of Fame was two-time World Cup-winning Australian woman cricketer Cathryn Fitzpatrick.



 

"It's a huge honour for me," Tendulkar said at the induction ceremony held in London on Sunday night.

 

Tendulkar, considered one of the most prolific batsmen in history, was inducted immediately after becoming eligible for induction, which requires that a player should have played his last international match at least five years before.

 

The 46-year-old, who retired in November 2013, tallied 15,921 runs in Tests and 18,426 in ODIs, both of which remain records. The highest run-scorer in Test matches and ODIs, the 'God of cricket' has 100 international centuries.


 

The 52-year-old Donald is one of the finest bowlers to have played the game and had 330 Test and 272 ODI wickets to his credit before calling it quits in 2003.

 

Fitzpatrick is the second-highest wicket-taker of all time in women's cricket with 180 ODI scalps and 60 in Tests. As a coach, she guided the Australian women's team to three World Cup titles.

 

Tendulkar became the sixth Indian to be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame, after Bishen Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid.
