International cricket witnessed many great players in every era who ruled the game with their skill and determination but few ending up not winning major titles and tournaments. The greatness of the players doesn’t get reduced any bit even if not achieving those leaves a mark in the history books. Here we look at some of the interesting things which the retired legendary players failed to achieve in their International career in the field of their excellence.

Sachin Tendulkar nearly swiped off all records in Test and ODI formats leaving very few to his counterparts. However, there were very few things which Sachin couldn’t achieve. Tendulkar featured in as many as 67 Test series (Excluding One-off Tests) but never scored 500 runs in a single series. The highest he made was 493 runs in the 2008 4-match Test series in Australia.

Interestingly, he scored 403 runs in a 2-match series against the Aussies in 2010 but never touched 500. In fact, Sachin could score 300+ runs in a bilateral ODI series only once in his career. He scored 374 runs during the 2007 7-match ODI series in England.
