Impossible to beat Sachin’s record: Gilchrist

Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist feels that there is a big gulf in class between Sachin Tendulkar and the rest of the batsmen, something that makes it almost impossible for anyone to get anywhere near Tendulkar’s landmark of 100 international centuries.

Giving the example of Ricky Ponting, Gilchrist said 29 centuries separate Tendulkar from his former skipper. “That speaks about Tendulkar’s greatness. He is way ahead. I really doubt that anybody would ever break this record,” Gilchirst told PTI. “If you look at the records, Ponting is the world’s best batsmen next to Tendulkar. But his combined tally of Test and ODI centuries is 71 (41 and 30 respectively),” he said.
