Sachin Tendulkar hits his 100th hundred for India

By Alex Jones

Legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar finally hit his 100th international hundred today after being stuck on 99 hundreds for over a year.

The 38-year-old became the first cricketer to score a century of centuries during today’s Asia Cup clash with Bangladesh in Dkaka (Footage of the historic moment can be seen below).

The Little Master, as he is known by his adoring fans, brought up the milestone with an easy single off his legs to cue wild celebrations from his team and crowd but Tendulkar himself remained composed and calm albeit with an emotional look in his eye as he raised his bat to  the Dhaka crowd.

After departing for 114, Tendulkar said: “I was not thinking about the milestone. It hasn’t sunk in.”

Speaking about the last year, Tendulkar told the NEO Cricket channel that “It was a tough phase for me. Specially tough when you know that I started off this season batting reasonably well.

“Wherever I went, to restaurant, the house keeping, the room service, whoever I met just spoke about the 100th hundred.

“It became a little difficult mentally, because I am not playing only for my 100th hundred.

“The 99 hundreds that I scored, nobody spoke about them. Everyone had their opinion but eventually I have got to do what is important for the team.”

Tributes have flooded in for Tendulkar’s majestic record.

Chief executive of the International Cricket Council (ICC), Haroon Lorgat, said; “On behalf of every cricket fan around the globe I congratulate Sachin on becoming the first person to score 100 centuries for his country.

“This is indeed a magnificent feat and not likely to be easily emulated. The number 100 is special for a batsman and to record 100 centuries for your country is a massive statement.

“His passion and personal records is a modern day wonder.

“Sachin is a true role model who will undoubtedly hold a special place in cricket’s history.”

India’s Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said: “He has made India proud.

“Tendulkar’s long career has been a triumph of class, character and courage. I wish him many more innings and feats to continue inspiring the youth.”

Tendulkar’s 22 year international career has seen him score over 33,000 runs with 49 One Day hundreds and 51 test hundreds to his name.
