Sachin Tendulkar in IPL: Facts and Figures

After having brought the curtain down on his illustrious ODI career right before the series against Pakistan, Tendulkar left his fans saddened amidst celebrations of IPL victory. It was an anti-climax as the master batsman was seen donning the blue jersey for the last time at Eden Gardens on Sunday.

A lot of revelations were being made about this announcement on account of Tendulkar’s declining performance and deteriorating fitness levels required for the shortest format of the game. However, statistics based on his performance in IPL have a completely different story to tell.

The-40-year-old represented the franchise in 78 matches, scoring 2,334 runs at an average of 34.83. He has a strike rate of 119.81 and struck one century and 13 fifties. He is the 5th highest run-getter in all the seasons, much ahead of the T20 specialist like Yuvraj singh and MS Dhoni. Considered to be a format for young and energetic, Tendulkar proved that nothing can supersede his technique.

Apart from being a phenomenal batsman, Tendulkar will be missed for his contribution on the field and for his ability to mentor the young members of the squad. His sheer presence motivates everyone to ante their game and constantly encourage them to perform well. His contribution has been unmatched and it will take a herculean effort to fill the void he has left in the gentleman’s game.

For cricket lovers, the name, Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar will always exemplify the inimitable stuff that champions are made of. He is a true perfectionist and posses the mental strength that inspires the world. We will now have to wait till the end of the year when Tendulkar is likely to be seen in action against South Africa in a three-Test series where he is expected to complete a historic 200 Tests.
