No-one has ever captured the imagination of the cricket-watching public like Sachin Tendulkar has over the past two decades. His dedication and commitment towards the game remain unparalleled, and Tendulkar is certain to have almost all batting records against his name by the time he hangs up his boots. Success has followed him even in the 20-over format as he became the highest run-scorer in any single edition of the IPL by scoring 618 runs in IPL 2010. Though retired from Twenty20 Internationals, the Master continues to play in the IPL. And after two disappointing finishes in the IPL – he didn't play for most part of the inaugural season because of injury and his team finished second last in the second season – Tendulkar almost took his Mumbai Indians to the inaugural title in IPL 2010. The champion batsman couldn’t play the 2011 Champions League due to a toe injury, but his presence in the dressing room and invaluable guidance helped MI clinch the trophy under Harbhajan Singh’s captaincy.
