Indian champion batsman Sachin Tendulkar possesses virtually every record a batman can imagine.

Having completed his 50th century at Centurion Park, he is in the midst of a dream run and this is the best calendar year of his career with seven centuries.

With two more Tests to go, the record of Pakistan’s Mohammad Yousuf, who made 1788 runs at a Bradmanesque average of 99.33, the most in a calendar year is under threat.

Sachin Tendulkar has already rattled up 1543 runs and with four more possible innings at his disposal, he stands a good chance of eclipsing Yousuf’s record.
