Cricket Test Match - Sachin Tendulkar World Record

India Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar Sets World Record for Most Number of Cricket Test Match Playing World Records (169th Cricket Test Match)

Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday became the most-capped player in Test cricket history and now has almost every batting record to his name. Commencing this piece with the most striking part of cricket history re-written by the maestro, Sachin is the first batsman in history to score over 50 centuries and most overall runs in international cricket (ODIs, Tests and T20s) that currently stand at 31,350, leaving behind his closest rival Ricky Ponting by 5,851 runs.

Before stumbling onto his cherished records, the one that's most disheartening is the number of times he has fallen short of the three-figure mark in international cricket. Sachin holds the record of getting out the maximum number of times on 90s. He has been dismissed 24 times (17 in ODIs and 7 in Tests) on the scores of 90 to 99. On one occasion in ODIs, he remained unbeaten on 96. The 18 nineties in ODIs is an ODI record as well.

Starting from the foundation of his mountain of runs, Sachin remains the only player to score a century on debut in Ranji Trophy, Irani Trophy and Duleep Trophy.
Sachin has particularly liked the Australian attack when it comes to the record of aggregating most runs against a particular opponent in all forms of international cricket (Tests, ODIs and T20s). Sachin has aggregated 5,753 runs against Australia with 19 centuries and 25 fifties at an average of 50.46.
Here's a rundown of Sachin’s records in Test and ODI cricket:

Oldest man to climb the largest Kilimanjaro mountain set Guinness World Record

Mount Kilimanjaro began forming in Africa's Great Rift Valley around a million years ago. George Solt, from Buckinghamshire, has not been around for quite as long as that, but at the age of 82, he has become the oldest man to climb the world's largest free-standing mountain.

Mr Solt took on the challenge with his son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren, one of whom is 12 years old, in memory of his wife, Jen, who died last year. The money he raised by doing the climb will go towards Willen Hospice in Milton Keynes, where his wife spent her final days. "It's great, I can say I'm a world record holder and have done something no one else has ever done," Mr Solt said.

It took the group six days to get up and two days to get down Kilimanjaro. Mr Solt had prepared for months, using weights, cycling hard and walking. The hardest part about the challenge, he said, were the "headaches, nausea and plain tiredness". When he reached the top of the 5,895m peak, Mr Solt said, he was "totally blank and exhausted. I was just glad to be able to turn around and get down again".

But it was then that he encountered the most difficulty. He said the descent was "absolutely awful, I was absolutely wrecked. The bottom half was the worst, in the wet rainforest, it was very slippery, the next day I couldn't even walk down the hotel steps".

His 52-year-old son didn't make it to the summit: "He just suddenly went absolutely bananas and had to be taken down and was extremely ill on the way down but right as rain the minute he got to the bottom."

Mrs Solt had been a keen climber too, mountaineering until she was 80, but suffered from altitude sickness, which meant the couple did most of their climbing in Europe, rather than on higher peaks such as Everest.

Mr Solt is five years younger than the Frenchman Valtée Daniel who, at 87, claims to be the oldest man to have climbed the mountain. But Mr Daniel's climb has never been recognised by the Guinness Book of Records, who insist on certain rules being followed in order for a climber's claim to be accepted. In particular, the record attempt has to be verified by independent witnesses, must be filmed and photographed as well as meticulously documented in a logbook.

Mr Solt reached Kilimanjaro's Uhuru peak on 14 July 2010, and is now resting at home, waiting for Guinness World Records to verify his climb.

World's largest dinosaur museum enters Guinness World Records - Shandong,China

A dinosaur museum in east China's Shandong Province has been confirmed by Guinness World Records as the largest of its kind in the world, a museum official said Monday.

The Shandong Tianyu Museum of Nature in Pingyi County, which opened in 2004 and is devoted to dinosaur and other prehistoric fauna, applied for a Guinness World Record in early June and received the confirmation Monday, said Yin Shiyin, deputy curator of the museum.

"It contains 28,000 square meters (301,389 sq ft) of exhibition space, housing 1,106 dinosaur specimens and thousands of other ancient fossils," the London-based agency said in a certificate to confirm it as the world's largest dinosaur museum.

The dinosaur specimens are all represented by almost complete skeletons, including 368 psittacosaurid specimens, 391 dromaeosaurid specimens, 255 Anchiornis specimens, 22 Jeholosaurus specimens, and 70 other rare dinosaurs and unnamed dinosaur fossils, the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences said in a certification document.

Moreover, the Tianyu museum had tens of thousands of other ancient fossils, such as birds and fish fossils, the institute said.

Before the new record, the museum had five other world records, including the longest silicified wood fossil, the biggest Sinosauropteryx fossil, the biggest amethyst cave, Yin said.

A ceremony to mark the recognition as the world's largest dinosaur museum will be held on Sept. 28 at Tianyu, and officials from Guinness World Records headquarters would attend, Yin said.
