well it is nice to see sentence regarding sachin tendulkar... since he is god of many ...and i am one of them.

But, i think no option is correct here, we can shortlist on 2 and 4 but "sachin had become" is not correct, it should be sachin became or sachin has become wold be the correct usage...

Otherwise i will go for option 4 ... correct modifier..

I will go with C as well.. but I needed a comma after "GOD"..I mean comma after "Sachin Tendulkar and after month.
for me the following sentence is perfect.

Thirty years after the first one day international game was played, Sachin Tendulkar, last month , became the first batsman to score 200 runs

Sudhir18in - there is no comma, did check the original Question again.

Is C not changing the meaning of the original sentence a bit, Sachin played last month Vs. one day international match was played last month after 30 years?

If the original sentence meant that the first one day international match was played last month after 30 years, it is wrong; that needs to be changed. C does that.
