#2 Because Sachin holds the record for most runs in World Cup history
Sachin scored 2278 runs in 45 matches in the world cup at an average of 56.95 which is almost 10 average points higher than the second best in the league i.e. Ricky Pointing, who will remain 4 centuries and 35 runs behind the master after the last world cup, forever!!
And considering that only 3 players in the top 30 of all time leading scorers list in the world cup will be a part of the next world cup in 2015, his record will stand the test of time and is unlikey to be broken in the next 15 years atleast.Published 11 Dec 2014, 22:40 IST
