Tendulkar completes sixth Test double century

Batting icon Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday completed his sixth double hundred in Test cricket, adding to the mountain of runs he has accumulated in his over two-decade career.

Tendulkar’s knock of 214 came against Australia in the second Test here. The right-hander took 363 balls and struck 22 fours and a couple of sixes during his stay on the crease.

He was dismissed by rookie Australian pacer Peter George who clean bowled the Indian for his maiden Test wicket.

Tendulkar holds just about every batting record worth owning in the game, including those for most runs and hundreds in Tests and ODIs, and most international runs.

The right-hander has 57 fifties in the longer format of the game.
