100 Centuries for Sachin Tendulkar

0 of 8

    Sachin Tendulkar completed his hundredth century against Bangladesh in Dhaka, a record that will stand the test of time.

    This record will stand just like Don Bradman's record of 99.96—Sachin's current rivals are more than 25 centuries behind him. 

    Tendulkar said that he did not play the game for records and statistics, but if one is playing for more than two decades, such records are bound to come.

    Let us look at some of the amazing centuries that Sachin scored in his career. Obviously, there are too many of them and picking only a few is unjust to the others.

    Hence, we will look at centuries in the last three years only.

Hundredth at Dhaka

1 of 8

    A painstaking century at Dhaka was the moment the entire cricketing fraternity was waiting for.

    It came after a long wait both for the legend and his fans.

First to Reach 200 in ODIs

2 of 8

    Sachin Tendulkar became the first man to reach 200 in ODI matches by scoring it against South Africa at Gwalior.

    A great knock by a true legend! 

2011 World Cup Century Against England

3 of 8

    The century against England in 2011 World Cup was truly blistering—120 of 115 balls. 

    A brilliant, potentially match-winning knock that sadly resulted in a tie.

Best Sessions of His Life

4 of 8

    Sachin's century against South Africa at Cape Town was memorable considering the opposition and venue.

    He himself admitted that it was one of the best sessions of his life.

Double Against Aussies

5 of 8

    A double-century against Australia at Bangalore was once again a hit with his fans, especially coming against his favorite rival.

    Playing with Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin scored his 200 that took India to a memorable win.

175 in an ODI

6 of 8

    A brilliant 175 against Australia was a great performance in the year of 2009.

    It was heart-breaking for Sachin that this knock could not get India past the winning line.

    What did Ian Chappell have to say?

2011 World Cup Century Against South Africa

7 of 8

    Sachin Tendulkar scored yet another World Cup century against South Africa in Nagpur.

    Again, his teammates did not support him by winning the match, but this was a great match by the legend.

Century at Centurion

8 of 8

    Sachin Tendulkar completed 50 centuries in test cricket at Centurion against a formidable South African bowling attack.

    This knock was very satisfying for himm and the record of 50 centuries was more a formality for him.
