On 16 March 2012, the legendary batsman scored his 100th international century against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup. It was also the 49th ODI ton with 51 centuries recorded in Test cricket.
Tendulkar scored 114 off 147 balls, but the defeat could not be stopped in his favor.
It is also worth noting that Sachin’s achievement is important in international cricket. 100 centuries after this, it is Ricky Ponting, who ranks second on this list, but with 71 tons.
Ponting is followed by Kohli who has scored 70 centuries. The difference in reaching milestones between Tendulkar and other cricketers is huge and one takes a long time to reach the milestone.
Tendulkar is the leading run scorer in Test and ODI cricket with 15,921 and 18,426 runs respectively. In total, he played 200 Tests, 463 ODIs and one T20I match.
