Master Blaster's New Milestone - A Century of Centuries

CONGRATULATIONS!! to Sachin Tendulkar on making history by becoming the first human to score 100 centuries in international cricket.

Tendulkar became the first batsman in the world to make a 100 international centuries, getting to the milestone against Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla stadium in Mirpur at 5:05pm local time on March 16, 2012. The historic journey to his 100th international century on Friday took longer than expected, as he was stranded from the unprecedented mark for just over a year. The best batsman of the modern era scored his last century (111) against South Africa at Nagpur during the World Cup on March 12, 2011.

Tendulkar got to his 49th One Day International century and his first against Bangladesh with a clipped single to square leg but did not celebrate much despite the mounting pressure of expectations from billion plus cricket lovers around the world. By scoring his first ODI hundred against Bangladesh, Sachin completed his set of centuries against every Full Member country in both Tests and ODIs.

"I can't think of anything at this stage, it has been a tough phase for me," Tendulkar told Neo Cricket channel after his innings. "I started off the season well but was luckless. It does not matter how many hundreds you score, you still have to grind it out."
