The 100th Hundred

On this day in 2012, Sachin Tendulkar completed a jaw-dropping 100th international century when he pushed Shakib Al-Hasan towards square-leg for a single in an India-Bangladesh Asia Cup encounter in Mirpur. The wait for the milestone was excruciatingly long. Tendulkar completed his 99th century during the 2011 World Cup group stages and then went through tournaments in England, Australia and at home against West Indies without a century despite batting reasonably well. The 100th was an uncharacteristically subdued innings but by the end of it, an expression of relief writ large on Tendulkar's face. The match turned out to be bittersweet for Tendulkar himself as India's total of 289 was overhauled by Bangladesh, a result that eventually dumped India out of the competition. Tendulkar's feat of 100 100s is likely to withstand the test of time and much like Don Bradman's average of 99.94, will probably never be broken.
