Sachin Tendulkar & Virender Sehwag is not first to Score 200

New Dehli (Routers) Indian openers Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag are not only cricketers to score 200+ score. They should remember former Australian women's captain, Belinda Clark who scored 200+ 14 years ago in India in World Cup 1997.

Messages of congratulation are pouring in from around the world - and it is quite possible that one of those messages may come from former Australian women's captain, Belinda Clark. Because while Sehwag is the Second man to reach the magical number, Clark did it 14 years ago, against Denmark in the Women's World Cup in India in 1997.

Clark made 229 not out, batting for 181 minutes and scoring 22 boundaries, as Australia notched up 412 for three, before bowling Denmark out for 49.

Cricinfo describes Clark as a giant of the Australian game both on and off the field, where she combined the roles of player and captain with that of chief executive of Women's Cricket Australia.

She led by example, averaging over 50 in Tests and 40 in one-day internationals.

In 1997 she captained Australian to their fourth World Cup, but despite cracking 91 in the 2001 final, Australia lost to New Zealand by four runs.

Clark's revenge came in 2005 when she led Australia to another title in South Africa, where her side did not lose a game.

At Test level Clark was, if anything, even more prolific, and her best score of 136 was made against England at Worcester in 1998.

She holds Australia's record for Test and ODI runs and also for ODI appearances. She retired at the end of the 2005 Ashes series, but like her male counterparts, it was as part of a losing side.

Virender Sehwag 's 200 Controversial

INDORE: Flamboyant Indian batsman Virender Sehwag created history by becoming the highest scorer ever in a one-day innings and the second cricketer after teammate Sachin Tendulkar to score a double century in the fourth ODI against the West Indies. He scored 219 on 149 balls.
It is noted that both Indian Batsmen scored 200 in their homeland while all players like Saeed Anwar,
Charles Coventry, Viven Richard and Brian Lara scored 150+ on away country. Pakistan's Golden opener Saeed Anwar who ruled with highest 194 runs in ODI for a very long period of time, he scored his best and world's highest ODI runs against India.Which India should remember before highlighting Tendulkar's and Sehwag's 200+ scores in media with pride.

But the fact is that Tendulkar and Sehwag is not first to score 200. They both are only male cricketers to score 200+ but
former Australian women's captain, Belinda Clark who scored 200+ 14 years ago in Women's world cup 1997 in India. So we think that Tendulkar and Sehwag should consider Belinda Clark as their GURU.And they should be ashamed on scoring 200 on their home ground.

As famous proverb "In her own street, Cat belief herself as a Lion", if Pakistan's Shahid Afridi provided a chance in Karachi's "AZGHAR ALI SHAH STADIUM" & even against a strong team like Srilanka on a batting pitch, we can say that Afridi will definitely score 250+ on this pitch.
And we know that Afridi rocks always against big teams and big bowlers and on neutral or away venue.
