Tendulkar's 200 in Time magazine's Top Ten Sports moment

Iconic Indian batsman Tendulkar’s record-breaking one-day International double century has found a place in Time magazine’s 'Top Ten Sports Moment of the year.

"Confident sports milestones appear simply unreachable: In cricket, it's the one-day double-hundred: no man had still produced 200 runs for his team during a one-day international match," 'Time' said.

In February, however, India's Tendulkar, the maximum run scorer of all-time, hit the magic milestone against a powerful South African squad.

Sachin smacked 3 'sixes' - the cricket equal of a home run during his epic performance, and the build up to 200 was exciting.

"When he reached 199, the home crowd in Gwalior waved Indian flags, and roared, knowing they were about to witness history. The little Tendulkar, dubbed 'The Little Master,' slapped a single past the South African fielders. The world’s 1.5 billion cricket fans had a second they’d never forget," it said.
