Sachin's records in the lost game against South Africa.

  Here are some of the records created by Sachin during the game against South Africa.  Records cannot win a game !!! ( No disrespect meant to the great man.  As always he had done his job.  The blame should fall on his captain and his co-players)

 Sachin Tendulkar became the first batsman to register six hundreds at the World Cup - one each against England, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Namibia and two against Kenya. 

Tendulkar has recorded two hundreds against Test playing nations for the first time in a single edition of the World Cup - 120 against England at Bangalore on February 27 and 111 against South Africa at Nagpur on March 12. He had first posted two World Cup hundreds in 1995-96 - one each against Kenya (127 not out at Cuttack on February 18, 1996) and Sri Lanka (137 at Delhi on March 2, 1996). 

With his brilliant 48th ODI hundred, Tendulkar has become the first batsman to post 20 centuries at home

Sachin took 92 balls to reach his century - the second quickest hundred registered by him at the World Cup - his quickest being the 84-ball hundred against Kenya at Bristol on May 23, 1999. 

Sachin became the first batsman to complete 2,000 runs against South Africa in ODIs, amassing 2001 at an average of 35.73 in 57 matches. With his 99th hundred in international cricket, Sachin became the first batsman to register five hundreds against South Africa in ODIs. 

Sachin also became the first player to aggregate 2,000 runs or more against four nations - Australia (3005), Sri Lanka (2965), Pakistan (2389) and South Africa (2001).

With three sixes against South Africa, Sachin has set a record for most sixes by an Indian in ODIs, taking his sixes' tally to 193, bettering Sourav Ganguly's tally of 190. 

Sachin (324 at an average of 64.80) is the second batsman after Virender Sehwag to complete 300 runs in the present edition of the World Cup.

Sehwag and Tendulkar, with their 142-run partnership, hold a first wicket partnership record for India against South Africa at the World Cup. The said stand is the highest for India for any wicket against South Africa at the World Cup, surpassing the 130 for the second wicket at Hove on May 15, 1999. 

Sachin, with century stands for the first and second wicket, has established another record. He now shares twelve stands of 100 or more at the World Cup, bettering Ricky Ponting's tally of ten century stands.
