200 not out...

Sachin Tendulkar became the first man in ODI history to hit a double century. He remained not out at 200, at the end of 50 overs. Superlatives are not enough to describe the innings, and I am in no way qualified to even write 1% as beautifully as he played (read cricinfo for some really nice articles). Will just list out some facts about this innings. Figure out for yourself, why #sachin is god!

1. In 2962 ODI's this is the first time, 200 has been scored.
2. He took 147 balls to score 200. Amazing team player, number of balls show how well he rotated the strike
3. 25 fours, 3 sixes
4. 81 singles
5. No by runner. That's right, no by runner in the entire innings.
6. And lastly, this is how he reacted after reaching the milestone. No fist pumping, no chesting thumping. Just this.
