DHAKA — India’s Sachin Tendulkar has become the first player to score 100 international centuries by compiling a ton in a one-day international against Bangladesh yesterday.
The 38-year-old completed his landmark century, his 49th in one-day cricket, with a single clipped to square leg.
Tendulkar had twice been out in the ’90s after scoring his 99th century against South Africa in March 2011.
The right-hander, who holds the record for scoring the most Test and one-day runs, has also scored 51 Test tons.
Tendulkar was immediately congratulated by the Bangladesh players after he jogged through for the single, scored off Shakib Al Hasan.
The century was Tendulkar’s first against Bangladesh in one-day cricket. He has scored 15,470 Test runs and more than 18,000 in the one-day game. — BBC Sport
