Sachin Tendulkar celebrates his ninth anniversary of his 100th International Century on March 16 with full enthusiasm along with his former teammates.
The legendary Cricketer who is considered as one of the greatest batsmen in World Cricket is currently representing India Legends in the ongoing Road Safety World Series. He celebrated his anniversary with his teammates of India legends such as Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Virender Sehwag & Yuvraj Singh. Yusuf Pathan took to twitter to share a photo of the cake cutting ceremony & he captioned the picture as, “It’s 9th anniversary of Sachin paji’s 100th international century and we celebrated it in some style. Some amazing memories to cherish. @sachin_rt”.
On March 16, 2012 the legendary batsman scored his 100th International Century against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup. It was also his 49th ODI century along with the 51 Centuries he scored in the Test Cricket. Sachin Tendulkar scored 114 runs off 147 balls but couldn’t prevent a defeat for his team. It is also worth noting that Sachin’s achievement has a great importance in International Cricket. After his 100 centuries it is Ricky Ponting who is second in the list with 71 centuries registered on his name.
After Ponting comes Kohli who has scored 70 centuries. The margin between Sachin and other cricketers in reaching the milestone is huge & it could take a long time for anyone to reach the landmark. Sachin Tendulkar is also the highest run scorer in Test & ODI format of Cricket with 15,921 runs and 18,426 runs respectively. In total, he played in 200 Tests, 463 ODIs and a single T20I match.
