"This is an unbelievable landmark in the history of the game. There is no doubt that this record will perhaps remain for eternity. No other cricketer is any where near this phenomenal achievement and shall perhaps never be."

Asha Bhonsle (renowned singer): Many Congrats, If he doesn't deserve Bharat Ratna even now.. I wonder who does!!

Maheshbhupathi: SRT as always inspirational...standing ovation!!

Sreesanth: Sachin tendulkar paaji is the best cricketer the world has ever seen. The one and only God of cricket.

In a congratulatory message, Sankaranarayanan said:
"The record of scoring 50 Test centuries set by you in South Africa is akin to scaling the Himalayan peak Mount Everest, and I am sure the record will remain unassailable for decades to come."

"The achievement has pumped up the chest of every Indian with pride. The people of Maharashtra are especially elated by your spectacular century. You are a role model for the cricketers across the world and I do hope that your achievement will enthuse the sports persons in India to do well for the country. I congratulate you and wish you more glory, now and always," he said.
South African captain Graeme Smith
"The guy has scored 50 Test hundreds so it's a bit hard to rate this one. He's scored a few hundreds before I can even remember. Under pressure, being able to score runs is a feather in his cap.

South African left-arm spinner Paul Harris

"I was just 13 years old when Sachin made his debut. Since then I have grown up watching this great cricketer. On Sunday he showed why is regarded as great,"

"He knows his game so well. He has played 175 tests so no one can talk about kind of experience Sachin has got," he added.

@JohnSunCricket (John Etheridge) Sachin...totally untainted, always dignified, supreme role model, universally admired. No modern player carries such respect.

"For him, a Test match begins two days earlier, preparing for it. He wants to face the maximum number of balls at the nets. You will not see him play a loose shot at the nets."
Gary Kirsten, India's coach, praises Tendulkar's work ethic

"The only challenge he has is to beat himself every time he walks out there because he has done almost everything."
There's little left for Tendulkar to achieve, says Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara

"When we used to play, we thought no one can break Sunil Gavaskar's record. No one could think about 50 Test centuries at that time. This is certainly a big knock under the circumstances, better than the 200s and 300s."
Kapil Dev, the former India captain, sizes up the feat

"There wouldn't be one side in the world that wouldn't want Sachin as their first wicket, pointing their ship toward victory."
Former Australia opener Matthew Hayden presents the opposition's point of view

"I try to watch the matches in which he is playing because I have not seen anyone gifted with such natural technical batting excellence, which he has combined with his hard work and commitment. He is indeed a phenomena and a role model for every young batsman."
Hanif Mohammad, the former Pakistan batsman, admires Tendulkar's perseverance

"I've never imagined that someone can go this level and play for more than 20 years. It's an incredible feat."
Graeme Pollock is impressed by Tendulkar's longevity

"I'd like to ask him just how he has managed to work so hard to stay at the top for so long and what advice he'd give other sportsmen."
The fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt, is a fan

"If I'm a cricketer, it's because of Sachin Tendulkar. Else, I would have never picked up a bat. He's the reason behind me playing cricket."
Virender Sehwag gives us another reason to be thankful for Tendulkar

"It was clear to us even when he walked out to bat in that Test as a teenager that he had talent. The fact that he has been around for 21 years and done justice to that god-gifted talent in both forms of the game is an achievement any cricketer would be proud of."
Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad appreciates Tendulkar's consistency

"When I first bowled to Sachin Tendulkar, I almost felt sorry for this small-built 16-year-old, who looked 14."
Imran Khan, the former Pakistan captain, on the brief while he felt bad for Tendulkar before feeling the same for the bowlers he was batting against

"... shut your eyes, blank out the noise and whisper gently, '50 Test centuries'. Enjoy the way it slips off your tongue and ask yourself if you had ever considered it possible. I hadn't. A decade ago I wrote, 'Would I be considered a madman if I forced the word "fifty" from my lips!'"
Commentator and television presenter Harsha Bhogle savours the moment

"How do you describe such a man? Ninety-six international centuries, fifty of them in Tests all over the world, it's fantastic."

Tendulkar's feats do the impossible: leave Bishan Bedi at a loss for words

Bedi: "I sent him a message congratulating him for his tremendous achievement and told him that the nation is proud of him, he sent me a reply saying Thank you Paji,"

"I watched him when he got his first hundred. His thirst for runs is simply unstoppable. I am a great admirer of the legend. He has never betrayed his emotions in public.

"Yes, he dedicated his 50th ton to his father. This is a fact that Saturday (December 18) was the birthday of his father. Look at the achievements of the great superstar of Indian sports arena and yet there has not been one occasion when he lost his peace of mind, Bedi said.

Bedi also spoke of Tendulkar's obsession for batting.

"He is obsessed with batting. If you go to his bed room as the door closes it makes the same kind of sound as when the ball hits the bat. I think whatever he is today is because of his dedication, discipline, hardwork, obsession for batting and the sanskars that he has imbibed from his family," said the left arm spinner.

Krishnamachari Srikkanth (Sachin’s first India captain): He is the God of cricket and it’s a super human effort. He has dedicated 21 years in International cricket and that’s amazing.

Chandu Borde (Sachin’s first India manager); This was expected… This is one of the finest achievements in cricket history. It is a fantastic performance by Sachin . Records do not matter to him… He will keep playing and records will follow him.

Dilip Vengsarkar (Sachin’s first Mumbai captain): It was an absolutely outstanding innings, an outstanding milestone in history of cricket. It has never happened in the history of cricket and I don’t think anybody would ever reach such a milestone . It’s been 21 years but he has retained the same enthusiasm, which I saw in 1988. He is so focussed, so passionate and disciplined… Every time he occupies the crease, there is a record.

Gundappa Viswanath (former India captain and chief selector): The innings showed his keenness and calibre… I was very impressed by the way he ran between the wickets. It’s a monumental effort and a great achievement… It’s an unbelievable performance and no cricketer can come close to this mark, leave alone erasing it.

Syed Kirmani (Former India wicket-keeper and chief selector): He has reached the pinnacle of his cricketing career and I am sure his hunger for runs is still there. He has been achieving milestones, one after another, and it is beyond any cricketer’s calibre to match Sachin’s feat.

Madan Lal (former India all-rounder, selector and manager): Earlier, Indian batting entirely revolved around Tendulkar. But with the emergence of Dravid, Laxman, Sehwag and Gambhir, there is less pressure on Tendulkar. And when you are under less pressure, you start enjoying and playing more freely.

Abdul Qadir (who was spanked by Sachin in his debut series, in Pakistan): At that time, Waqar Younis was at his quickest. But the kind of technique and temperament Sachin showed during his first innings in international cricket was worth remembering… Suddenly you could feel that this was a special talent.

Kumar Sangakkara (Sri Lanka captain): I think it is just the way he has changed his game… He is now competing mostly against himself, like most great cricketers do.

Note: The Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, too, has congratulated Sachin. “It is an amazing achievement to play for the country for over two decades and still continue to be the team’s anchor. Sachin makes all of us so very proud,” he said.

Congratulations have also poured in from ICC president Sharad Pawar, former union minister Shashi Tharoor, legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar and Indian tennis stars Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna.
