Another achievement has been recorded in the name of Sachin Tendulkar, the former great cricketer of the Indian team. Former opener Sachin Tendulkar has been voted the greatest Test batsman of the 21st century after holding several world records in international cricket.
In this case, Sachin Tendulkar has overtaken former Sri Lankan wicketkeeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara. Although Sachin got a tough competition from Sangakkara, the Indian opener was on the list of most of the members of the jury. That is why Sachin was successful in beating it.
Sachin Tendulkar has been voted as the greatest batsman of the 21st century by Star Sports on the historic occasion of the World Test Championship final. Sachin Tendulkar, Steven Smith, Kumar Sangakkara, and Jacques Kallis have been nominated in this category of batsmen.
Star Sports constituted a 50-member jury to select the best from these nominated players. It included India's great Test cricketer Sunil Gavaskar, Ian Bishop, Harbhajan, Gautam Gambhir, Shane Watson, Scott Styris, and renowned sports journalists and coaches.
