Sachin Tendulkar Hits 100th Century in International Cricket: I Am One of the Luckiest Watching That Historic Moment

© Harish Jharia

I consider myself as one of the luckiest persons who watched Sachin Tendulkar scoring his 100th cricket century, on 16 March 2012, in the Asia cup 2012 match played between India v/s Bangladesh at  Mirpur, Bangladesh. 

             When the sky descends down to earth

Sachin Tendulkar on Friday became the first and only cricketer who scored 100 international centuries.  Tendulkar 38, achieved this feat with a century in the Asia Cup 2012 match against Bangladesh in Dhaka, putting to an end to a prolonged wait of more than a year, after his 99th century, for his millions of fans.

Sachin Tendulkar, an all-time legend and one of the greatest in the cricket, made 114 off 147 balls with 12 fours and a six, before he was caught behind off a ball from Bangladesh seamer Mashrafe Mortaza in the 47th over.

Sachin Tendulkar acknowledged his achievements by looking at the sky thanking his father Ramesh Tendulkar and dedicated the 100th Cricket Century to his country by pointing at the Indian national flag and emblem of Indian cricket inscribed on his helmet, rather than pumping fists and screaming ‘eee…yes…sss’ like any other achiever like.
