New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar has amassed plenty of records in his illustrious career. He has the highest number of centuries in ODIs and Tests, the most number of runs in both formats and runs against all oppositions and in all countries. Name any record and out comes Tendulkar’s name on top. In Tests, Tendulkar’s ability to score runs against the best opposition attacks made him the absolute gold standard. December 19, in particular, is a memorable day for all Indian and world cricket fans. It was on this day, eight years ago, that Tendulkar became the first and so far, only cricketer to reach 50 Test centuries. He achieved this feat in the 2010 Centurion Test against South Africa.India had gotten off to a bad start. On a green pitch and with plenty of rain heading into the build-up, South Africa won a crucial toss and chose to field. Morne Morkel picked up 5/20 and Dale Steyn ended with 3/34 as India was bundled out for 136. Tendulkar showed his mettle with a solid 36. South Africa amassed 620/4 declared, with Hashim Amla scoring 140 but Jacques Kallis stole the show by registering his maiden double century and he was well supported by AB de Villiers, who blasted five sixes and 12 fours in his knock of 129.Read More | India lose Perth Test to ‘weakest’ Australia by 146 runsIndia put up a better show in the second innings with Gautam Gambhir (80) and Virender Sehwag (63) giving MS Dhoni’s side a great platform for a revival. However, a lower-middle order collapse saw India staring down the barrel and it was left to Dhoni and Tendulkar to once again revive India’s fortunes. Both shared a 172-run stand for the seventh wicket, with Dhoni in particular batting in an aggressive manner. Tendulkar still had time to create his own personal history and he became the first batsman to reach 50 Test centuries when he drove Steyn to the deep extra cover region for a single. The celebrations that echoed around Centurion were testament to his greatness.Read More | Angelo Mathews, Kusal Mendis script unique history in draw against NZHowever, when Dhoni was dismissed for 90, the end seemed near. Bad light forced the Test to be dragged into the fifth day.  India could last only seven more overs as they were bowled out for 459, with Tendulkar unbeaten on 111. India lost by an innings and 25 runs but for Tendulkar, the tour proved to be resounding success as he smashed his 51st Test century in the same series in Cape Town. Tendulkar survived a fierce spell from Steyn and Morkel to cement his reputation as one of the greatest the game has ever had. last_img read more

first_imgParis, France | AFP |  Established star Sadio Mane and the emerging 16-year-old Ansu Fati both scored as they shared the limelight among Africans in the top European leagues at the weekend.Senegal’s Mane boosted hopes of succeeding Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah as African Footballer of the Year with a brace in a Premier League comeback win over Newcastle United.Guinea-Bissauan Fati, the teenager taking La Liga by storm, notched his second goal in as many matches to set up Barcelona for victory over Valencia.ENGLANDSADIO MANE/MOHAMED SALAH (Liverpool)Mane sparked Liverpool into action against Newcastle once he was switched to the left of the formidable front three. The Magpies were leading at that stage, but once the tactical switch was made shortly before the half hour they were run ragged, largely by the Senegalese. Mane scored twice before the break to turn the tide and maintain his extraordinary record of Liverpool never losing a Premier League home game when he is among the goals, winning 33 and drawing two. Egyptian Salah then scored his fourth goal of the campaign.MOUSSA DJENEPO (Southampton)The young Mali international has quickly settled into the Premier League after a close-season move from Standard Liege. Having opened his account for the Saints against Brighton prior to the international break, the 21-year-old scored the only goal of the game at Sheffield United with a cracking individual goal.PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG (Arsenal)Aubameyang struck twice in quick succession in the first half against Watford to take his season tally to five in as many games. However, the Gabon international’s contribution was not enough for all three points as the Gunners collapsed after the break and had to hang on for a 2-2 draw.SPAINANSU FATI (Barcelona)The teenager from Guinea-Bissau continued the remarkable start to his senior career at Barcelona by scoring inside two minutes on his full debut. Fati went on to assist Frenkie de Jong’s seventh-minute goal as the reigning La Liga champions romped to a 5-2 win over Valencia.ITALYKALIDOU KOULIBALY (Napoli)Senegalese defender Koulibaly put his own-goal howler against Juventus behind him by helping Napoli keep a clean sheet for the first time this season with a 2-0 win over Sampdoria. “We wanted to win without taking goals and to convince on the first try in front of our fans: done,” Koulibaly wrote on Twitter after Napoli had conceded seven goals in their two previous games.KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG (Fiorentina) Ghanaian Boateng came on as a substitute in place of Franck Ribery against champions Juventus. The 32-year-old had a volley off target but Fiorentina held on for a 0-0 and earned their first point this season.GERVINHO (Parma)The Ivorian missed a chance to equalise as Parma fell 3-1 at home to Cagliari. Gervinho shrugged off defenders after an hour but paid for sloppy finishing as Parma fell to their second loss in three games.GERMANYACHRAF HAKIMI (Borussia Dortmund)The young Moroccan right-back sent a pinpoint cross into Paco Alcacer to create Dortmund’s opener in a 4-0 rout of Bayer Leverkusen. Hakimi has made seven assists since joining Dortmund on loan from Real Madrid at the beginning of last season.AMINE HARIT (Schalke)Hakimi’s fellow Moroccan Harit grabbed a brace in a 5-1 win at Paderborn to take his season tally to five goals. He gratefully picked up assists from Jonjoe Kenny and Ahmed Kutucu as Schalke ran through promoted minnows Paderborn in the second half.SALIF SANE (Schalke)Harit’s teammate Sane also played his part, scoring his side’s first goal as they came from behind to triumph convincingly. The Senegalese defender rose above goalkeeper Jannik Huth to nod in the equaliser on 33 minutes.PIERRE KUNDE (Mainz)The Cameroon international was involved in the opening goal as Mainz grabbed a dramatic 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin to pick up their first points of the season. Kunde whipped in a cross to set up Robin Quaison, but Mainz needed an 89th-minute goal from Jeremiah St. Juste to win.FRANCEVICTOR OSIMHEN (Lille)Nigerian youngster Osimhen scored his fifth Ligue 1 goal of the campaign as last season’s runners-up Lille beat Angers 2-1. The 20-year-old, who previously scored doubles in home wins over Saint-Etienne and Nantes, grabbed his goal courtesy of a dreadful error by Angers goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle.KEITA BALDE (Monaco)Senegal striker Balde came off the bench late on against Marseille and gave Monaco hope of snatching an unlikely point with his first goal of the season. But, having led 2-0 early on, Leonardo Jardim’s men lost 4-3. Balde has returned to Monaco for the current campaign after spending last term on loan at Inter Milan.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Greenwood (68), Gary Dunn (67) and Joe Greene (75) during first quarter of Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. (AP Photo/File)PITTSBURGH (AP) — Four decades ago, the Pittsburgh Steelers put the finishing touches on the foundation of a dynasty.Already an emerging power in 1974, the Steelers selected wide receivers Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, linebacker Jack Lambert and center Mike Webster in the first five rounds of the 1974 draft.All four retired with a fistful of Super Bowl rings. All four have their busts in the Hall of Fame.“It is, by far, the greatest draft in NFL history,” current Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said. “Our hats are off to Art Rooney Jr., Dick Haley and Bill Nunn. Coach Chuck Noll and his staff have to be applauded, and we will certainly be thinking about that group as we get into this draft.”No pressure or anything.The Steelers aren’t quite the budding dynasty they were 40 years ago, not after consecutive 8-8 seasons. Still, after a 6-2 finish and with nine selections in what Colbert called the deepest draft he’s seen in 30 years, there is cause for optimism.Pittsburgh is stuck in the middle of the first round at No. 15. Colbert doesn’t see that as a hindrance to getting the  impact player that can lift the Steelers back into contention after spending the last two Januarys watching the playoffs from home.“The player that is going to be available to us at 15 in years past, you may have had to been picking at seven or maybe eight to get the same quality of a player,” Colbert said. “There are easily 15 players available that we will be very happy with if we are able to pick them.”Five things to look for as the Steelers try to recapture a little bit of the magic the franchise found two generations ago:STAYING PUT: Colbert isn’t big on moving up in the draft, instead preferring to stick to the script and see what’s available when the Steelers are on the clock. Considering the depth of this draft, he has already ruled out Pittsburgh trying to get into the top 10. That doesn’t mean the Steelers won’t listen if the phone rings with a team offering an extra pick or two to move up to No. 15.“The more picks the merrier,” he said.Pittsburgh last traded its first-round pick in 2001, when it flipped positions with the New York Jets and ended up taking five-time Pro Bowl nose tackle Casey Hampton, adding two more draft picks in the process.WIDE OPEN: While the team signed free agent wide receivers Darrius Heyward-Bey and Lance Moore to offset the departures of Jerricho Cotchery and Emmanuel Sanders, the one thing they lack is a red zone target capable of using his size to get position.Enter Allen Robinson? The 6-foot-3 former Penn State star is projected as a second-round pick, and the Steelers have never hesitated to mine the Nittany Lions for talent.MONITORING THE CORNER: A changing of the guard is underway at cornerback. Veteran Ike Taylor signed a new — and deeply discounted — deal in the offseason after ceding his spot as the team’s top defensive back last fall to Cortez Allen. The Steelers need size and speed in the secondary after finishing outside the top 10 in yards allowed for the first time this millennium.Pittsburgh hasn’t taken a cornerback in the first round since Chad Scott in 1997. With Taylor in the final stages of his career and nickel back William Gay better suited for the slot, it might be time to find Taylor’s heir apparent, perhaps as high as the first round.HELP WANTED LINE: Free agency hit Pittsburgh’s defensive line the hardest. Ziggy Hood — a former first-round pick who never quite lived up to expectations — left. So did Al Woods, while longtime end Brett Keisel remains unsigned after his contract expired.While Colbert said the door isn’t closed on a possible return by Keisel, the Steelers need to get younger and more athletic along the line.“We’ve lost more than we have added,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “Hopefully, with this weekend and beyond, we will rectify that.”LENGTHY PROCESS: Consider the Steelers fans of the NFL’s decision to push the draft back from April to May.“We got an opportunity to probably lay more eyes on more guys throughout the process, and get out,” Tomlin said. “I know I probably got to more pro days this year than I have in the past. I think the additional time created more of an opportunity for that as well.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.orglast_img read more
