Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today congratulated Sachin Tendulkar on becoming the first cricketer to score a double century in the history of one-day cricket and said his innings would be remembered for all time to come.

"We all Delhiites join every Indian in celebrating this memorable achievement of Sachin Tendulkar," Dikshit said.

Tendulkar created history when he scored an unbeaten 200 to steer India to a massive 401 for three against South Africa in the second one day international in Gwalior.

"We all are proud of Sachin, who played a marvellous inning today against South Africa. Further, we are confident that he will continue to make world records. His innings will be remembered for all time to come," Dikshit added.
