Tendulkar on March 16, 2012, became the only batsman in the history of cricket to register 100 international centuries. He had achieved the feat against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

Sent in to bat first, India had witnessed a bad start as the side lost opener Gautam Gambhir pretty early in the innings. However, Tendulkar found support in Virat Kohli and the duo formed a 113-run stand. After Kohli’s dismissal, Suresh Raina came out in the middle.
Continuing his brilliant form, Tendulkar brought up his 100th ton in the 44th over of the innings. The Master Blaster went on to play a knock of 114 runs from 147 balls and took India’s total to 289/5 in the allotted fifty overs. However, Bangladesh managed to chase down India’s total in the final over of the innings to register a victory by five wickets.
Last week, Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh turned back the clock and took Raipur by storm in their inimitable style as India Legends registered a thumping 57-run win over South Africa in the Road Safety World Series T20. With this win, India Legends also qualified for the semi-final of the event.
