Year 1997

11th century: By now Sachin was leading Team India from the front and was setting examples for everybody else. With the captaincy feather on his cap, he scored 169 runs against the Proteas at the Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town on January 4, 1997.

24th century: Just five days later, Sachin scored a double ton for the second time in his career. Staying unbeaten at 201, India drew the match playing against Zimbabwe at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Ground in Nagpur.
