'Sachin's feat will flash for decades'

Former India captain Kapil Dev said that cricket fans across the globe will talk about Sachin Tendulkar's amazing feat for at least the next five decades.

Sachin Tendulkar on Sunday recorded 14000 Test runs during the second Test match against Australia, in the process becoming the first man in the history of Test cricket to achieve that feat.

"The present generation will only talk about Sachin for another 50 years. I am sure about it as not many people could reach the target that Sachin had set now. He is focused always and that is the reason that nobody could reach his standards," Kapil said.

Tendulkar ended the day on 191 not out but Kapil said he should have got his double hundred on Monday itself.

"I think, I am disappointed. He should have got a 200 today itself. He may be little tired towards the end. But the bowlers were also tired and Tendulkar could have taken on them and could have easily got a 200 hundred," Kapil said on a 'Headlines Today' show.

On day 4, Tendulkar did manage to record his sixth double century of his Test career.

However, soon after Tendulkars dismissal, the Indian batting lost track completely and slumped to 495 allout.
