Another feather in Sachin’s cap

SR
Tendulkar achieved another distinction in the Delhi test against West Indies.
His 76 in the second innings of the test represent his 50th fifty in
the tests played on home soil. It was his 28th half century and coupled
with 22 centuries he scored his 50th fifty.  He is the third batsman in the annals of test
cricket to score 50 plus fifties on home soil. Others are RT Ponting of
Australia {55} and JH Kallis of South Africa {52}
