Tendulkar believes his record can be broken

6:21 am on 26 February 2010

The India batsman Sachin Tendulkar believes his record score of 200 not out in a one-day cricket international is beatable.

36-year-old Tendulkar became the first player to hit a double century in a 50-over international in India's victory over South Africa in Gwalior yesterday.

He says no record is unbreakable.... but he would be happy if an Indian breaks his record.

Pakistan's Saeed Anwar and Zimbabwe's Charles Coventry held the previous record of the highest individual score in an ODI with 194 before Tendulkar's innings.

The Indian legend reached 200 in the final over of his side's innings and he achieved it off 147 balls.

Tendulkar says he doesn't play for records... he plays with passion and has done that for 20 years.

Tendulkar holds the record for most runs in ODI's and Tests and is planning to continue revelling in the kind of form which helped him reach his 200 landmark.
