Sachin Tendulkar became the first batsman to make a 100 international centuries, getting to the milestone against Bangladesh at the Shere Bangla stadium in Mirpur at 5:05pm local time on March 16, 2012. It ended a year-long wait for one of the most discussed landmarks in cricket history, and was his first ODI hundred against Bangladesh, completing his set of centuries against every Full Member country in both Tests and ODIs.

He reached the 100th hundred in the 44th over with a nudge behind square leg, one of his favoured strokes to reach a century. Despite the huge amount of hype surrounding the landmark, which has shown little sign of abating during the prolonged wait, there was no over-the-top celebration. The helmet came off and there was a wave of the bat, he looked up at the sky, as he usually does on reaching a hundred, and he acknowledged his team-mates by raising his helmet towards the dressing room. Several of the Bangladesh fielders congratulated him, even as the decibel-level in the packed stadium reached new highs.

It was not one of Tendulkar's most swashbuckling innings, more about efficient accumulation early on, before slowing down further as he neared the century, finally completing it off 138 deliveries. Tendulkar's achievement might have come against one of the weaker teams and in the league game of a low-key competition, but he still had to brave a raucous and partisan crowd. Once he reached the eighties, every dot ball he faced was loudly cheered. The Bangladeshi chant expressing displeasure, Bhua bhua, also rang out from sections of the stadium as he batted.

The stadium had been less than half-full when the match started, but as Tendulkar's innings progressed, more and more people came in and by the time he completed his hundred there weren't too many empty seats. There were frantic phone calls from reporters in the press box, back to their bosses, discussing long-ready tribute packages and whether the innings should replace the national budget as the front-page lead.

Unusually cautious play from Tendulkar suggested the weight of the coming milestone was affecting him. The holiday crowd, excited at the prospect of a terrific "I was there" anecdote to boast about, was egged on further by an enthusiastic DJ. He belted out several local hits, and that familiar background sound at the cricket these days, the bugle, ensured the stadium was a cauldron of noise.

The Mexican wave made its way around the ground, and the bouncing fans were rarely more thrilled than in the 34th over, a maiden by Mashrafe Mortaza. First, Tendulkar had to scramble back after attempting a single to mid-off, then a solid push towards mid-on went straight to the fielder before a slash landed just short of backward point. Sensing the batsman's discomfort, and possible nervousness, the crowd amplified the pressure with loud roars of approval after every delivery. He was nearly run out soon after, trying to pinch a single to backward point.

A lofted drive over extra cover in the 40th over and several singles took him to 99, which was when the crowd began to support Tendulkar, standing up and cheering in anticipation. Though India were past 200 with only two wickets down, Bangladesh tried to stifle Tendulkar by keeping seven fielders in the circle. The single to square leg finally brought up another mark of the longevity of the man who already has the most runs and has played the most matches in Tests and ODIs.

@sportofpain, well said on the Tendulkar and Bradman comment.

Posted by Al_Bundy1 on (March 18, 2012, 22:36 GMT)

Agree with @LillianThomson - Tendulkar now is like the 1996 Javed Miandad or the 1994-95 Gooch and Gatting. He should have been kicked out of the ODI team after 2007 World Cup - just like Dravid and Lax were. He had golden opportunity to retire on a high after 2011 World Cup - but his selfishness knows no bounds. So he chose to play on for meaningless milestones, in the process depriving many youngsters of opportunities.

GOD ....is back !!! wooo hooo !!! Many many more runs and Hundreds to flow from his golden willow...and also would love to see the naysayers cringe EVEN MORE after 23 years !! Ha..Ha!!! love it!!!

Well done and congrats Sachin.It is a remarkable achievement.If you want to be remembered as one of the greats time has come to think about giving the chance to a youngster.Just some food for thought with all due respect.

It is also fitting that this happened in Bangladesh - this is a country that is in love with cricket more than any other country. Such a great achievement deserves the right locale - not Australia or England where they seem to grudge him this achievement, not even in India where so may people are critical without understanding the depth of this achievement.

Bangladesh is in love with Cricket and Cricket is Sachin's life. It was destined to be here and is very sweet!

@lillianthompson: Your comments lack class. This is a body of work that no one can take awy from. The Don was great but what Sachin has accomplished I don't think the Don could have. Larwood may have been quick but Ambrose, Walsh, Donald, Steyn, McGrath, Akram, Waqar and Hadlee were not too shabby. Not to mention Quadir and Warne. And btw in that Bodyline series how much did the Don average - in the 50's.

A lot of my fellow Indians also trash him. Shame on them - the true follower of the game knows what a mammoth achievement this is and what an incredible journey this has been. Sachin - God Bless You. One day you will walk into the sunset and then we will all scarcely believe that someone like you held the bat.

Nanri! Shukriya!Thank You!

i would like all sachin critics to see his innings in the cb series finals in Australia and his blazing centuries in the Coca cola cup. In the 1990s when India were a terrible team it was only due to Sachin that we won so many matches.

Posted by Yolk_Eater on (March 18, 2012, 4:26 GMT)

Spare his son at least people. You have not experienced the journey, you can have only questions and not answers. Agreed he played slowly, but then tell me how much the bowlers need a total to defend? 350? 400? Because this is not bowling, this is bowling to just complete the formality of bowling. Remember last WC, against SA, India lost 9 wickets for 29, who is to blame? Sachin? Still, the target was 300 for SA, bowlers couldn't defend that? What should he do? Against england too which resulted in a tie. Zaheer khan just saved us somehow.

i feels sad the way you makin fun of a person like sachin,,, after doing and serving all this years,, our people are still demanding ,,, and askin for proof,, this sure is one of his slowest innings,, but wasnt that slow either,,, we have no idea, what the pitch was and what the situation was,,, and that pitch was slow in the morning and better later on,, if sachin was out initially,,, God only knows what wouldve happened.. please if not respect atleast dont insult that person, atleast u indians,,, the other nations are fine,, but for indians,,, there was a time when it was only sachin, and he is still playing reasonably well,,, atleast better than the others except may be kohli and dhoni...

Mr.arun dont be jealousy,sachin is a great great hero, i think there is only one Sachin Tendulkar , to score hundred 100th not and easy thing but he done it Congrats Mr. Tendulkar for achieving the mileston.I am a fan of u from sri lanka !

I Think Sachin has more haters in India than rest of the world...Completely Negative Society n people...that z y India HAS BEEN DEVELOPING since many years!!!

Posted by lakshitha.jayakody on (March 18, 2012, 3:22 GMT)

Sachin has nothing to prove & he is the greatest batsmen ever. He must retire after his 39th b'day. Otherwise he will live long enough to see himself become the villain. We Sri Lankans witnessed the same faith with Sanath Jayasuriya, the man who revitalized the ODI cricket. When he retired at the age of 42 from the very same format which he made colorful, nobody remembered him & for most of the fans he was a joke. No legend deserves it!!!!

Congratulations Sachin for scoring 100th hundred and putting your personal milestone ahead of team !!!! We all Indians are very very proud of you...

Posted by onlyIndiathebest on (March 17, 2012, 20:16 GMT)

Congratulations Sachin!!! The greatest player to ever play the game. He was , as always, very smart to bat slowly , even on a flat pitch, to make sure that he reaches his hundred. Of course this meant India risk losing the game but this is the Style of the Little Maestro and India should be more grateful that someone like him is even playing for them.

Posted by ansram on (March 17, 2012, 19:59 GMT)

Come on guys. Cheer up. What is the use of a win against Bangladesh which will not be remembered even after a week. Sachins feat will be remembered for a century so Sachin is justified in sacrificing the win in quest for personal glory. All hail the little master, May other Indians follow his lead.

I am glad u reacted to my comment about u learning the game. It clearly showa U r in the minority with respect to the assessment of the greatest batsman of all times- Sachin Tendulkar.

Learn to appreciate greatness and then u will know how to respond instead of reacting.

Congrats Mr. Tendulkar for achieving the milestone from a fan from BAN. Up until today 289 is so far a defendable score in ODI for any test team. Please don`t undermine his achievement due to the outcome of the game. So far, majority of the people commented congratulating this cricket geneous. I feel myself lucky to witness this historic event. Only few Indian critics wants him to retire, I believe they don`t love this game; they are the haters. They wouldn`t have been so critical had this been happened in last Asutralia tour. I agree with Shachin`s comment `` BAN team has been underrated``

Posted by KricketWicket on (March 17, 2012, 17:40 GMT)

If one had switched on to Indian TV yesterday, one might have mistakenly thought that India won the tournament and Sachin was the main hero. But the fact of the matter is, India lost to Bangladesh, a game they should have won, mainly becuase one man scored a hundred using away too many balls. This shows all that is wrong with India Cricket. Until we put the team above the person, until our players play for the country and its people, until our adminstrators think of the game and not themselves, we will never be a great cricketing nation. It has been a painful two days for a true India fan looking at this horrible tamasha. First he says it was the media that made it a big event. Then he gives press conferences upoin press conferences and goes on to say that he is truly relieved. What a joke. Definitely not a champion to me. Not even close.

Posted by porshatom on (March 17, 2012, 17:23 GMT)

Congratulations Tendulkar , The Suffering is to continue for India. Out of his 49 ODI 100's for INDIA, only 33 resulted in wins ( a very low percentage even when compared to other Indian batsmen). What is even more shocking is that out of those 33 wins, 4 were against Kenya, 4 vs Zimbabwe, 5 vs New Zealand, 3 vs West Indies & 1 vs Namibia. So more than half the ODI wins were against bottom ranked or non test playing teams (teams India were likely to beat regardless). Indian fans find this impressive ? :P

Posted by Major_Hammad on (March 17, 2012, 17:07 GMT)

Congrates to Tendulkar on personal Milestone/Record but always Remember My 6 Points: 1: Tendulkar scored 100th Hundred after struggle of 1+ year. 2: He scored 100th Hundred after 33 International Innings. 3: His 100th Hundred was his 2nd lowest strike rate in ODI Hundred by him. 4: He finally did it on Asian/subcontinent pitches, after failed to do it in England, Austrailia long tours. 5: He did it against weak team ( Anyhow at End of Day Stronger team than India) Bangladesh. 6: And India Lost the Match due to his slow Batting as he played maiden over (34th over) but at opposite scene Shakib made 18 runs in 37th over.

Posted by arun_cheers on (March 17, 2012, 16:53 GMT)

Do you know what could be his next mile stone. To be in the team till his son gets into the indian team and be there to welcome his son into the team !!! lol Actually once India's batting was over against Bangladesh, he realized that India is about 20 to 30 runs short on this particular wicket(seeing the way Raina and Dhoni batted in the end). And thats the reason he suddenly put the reason for slowing down his scoring rate as Kohli's advice. Did you guys listen to that interview ?

Its time bcci throws him out of the team if he does not retire on his own !

Posted by arun_cheers on (March 17, 2012, 16:53 GMT)

Guys remember one thing here, when Sachin was nearing the century(ie. after the 80 run mark), the Bangladeshies played intelligently. Their aim was to win the match and not stop Mr. Sachin from scoring his hundred. They knew the slower Sachin got to his hundred, the smaller the target its going to be for them to chase down.So they tactfully allowed Sachin to get to his century and there by ensured that they got a smaller target to chase down. Good move by the Bangladesh captain. This also exposes the fact that Sachin has played for himself and that his mind has been blown out in his quest for reaching the milestone. Sad to see that a veteran and an experienced person like Sachin commit such a big mistake and let the team down in the process. Really a shame.

Do you know what could be his next mile stone. To be in the team till his son gets into the indian team and be there to welcome his son into the team !!! lol

i love to see team india winning rather than personal milestones of individuals. am hugely disappointed bout the result. Its time for the youngsters to be given ample chances than the senior pros!!!! we lost in austrailia, england and i dont want india to exit from the asia cup.

i dont understand why ashok dinda was made to play against bangladesh. one must be cautious after the pakistan and bangladesh match. it's not time to experiment considering bangladesh is a weak team. bangladesh is not a weak time like it was.

Posted by saivostro3550 on (March 17, 2012, 16:10 GMT)

Sachin was so selfish in order to reach his milestone he consumed 20 odd balls. winning is important for the team not personal milestones. Had he attacked earlier india would have won. It was just the matter scoring ten extra runs for a win to india.

Kays 789 is so funny...i can't stop laughing....good one Kays :-)

Posted by MAK123 on (March 17, 2012, 16:01 GMT)

Too bad, whenever ST scores a hundred, more often than not, the team loses...I thought it was the same in case of Yousuf Youhana of Pakistan but the latter played much slower albeit in a selfish manner...perhaps someone could shet some light on this phenomenon:-)

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 16:00 GMT)

Recent comment from Sachin says he is not playing for century or record. To achieve his 100 he is very nervous. Where India about to score 300+ and 300+ automatically put opposition team mental pressure. But everyone is just concern about century but not how they defeated from home team. We want team to win the match not individual performance. Rather he could have played individual game rather in team. I am happy to see Sachin century but disappointed 1000 times loosing India. :( ... Come on team play for country and forget about individual records.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 15:37 GMT)

One of the greatest batsman of all time but great win for bangladesh they deserved it. India needs to find bowlers who can win games not club cricket medium pacers. Although sachin got his hundred he cost india the game by being negative whilst reaching his 100... he put himself before the team this could cost india a place in the final of the asia cup.

Posted by gdalvi on (March 17, 2012, 15:34 GMT)

The most hyped player in the world is really Bradman. During his time, Eng was the only strong team - rest of the teams NZ, Ind, WI, SA were just starting playing cricket - so they were more like BD, Kenya, Ireland and the likes. Bradman made a lot of runs against these minnows averaging more than 100 against them. Now we need to ask if we really should count these towards his record. As far as England goes, does anyone even remember a top bowler for England who averages less than 25 per wicket? No - because they were none!! Which was the reason Jardine.Larwood had to resort to Bodyline. And guess what - even with bodyline, Larwood just took 78 wickets in 21 wickets at average of 28, inspite of his bodyline success - which means he was an ordinary bowler after all. So the sad truth is that Bradman really made most of his runs against mediocre country club bowlers which is the only reason why his average was so high. Had he faced real bowlers like Sachin, he would also have averaged 50

Well, If Murali is a great player, it is not due to the fact that he has got 800 test wickets or most wickets in international cricket. It is because of the no. of matches he has single-handedly won for Srilanka. Similar is the case for warne, Saqlain, Waqar , Waseem, Imran, Gavaskar, Kapil, Viv. Richards, Lara, Bradman and so many other greats of the game (Not necessarily in the given order).... But sadly nobody can say the same for Sachin. Even Inzi, Razzaq Saeed Anwar can easily surpass him in that respect. He will only be remembered as the player who scored most centuries or most runs in cricket...... There will always be the people to make arguments about the matches where he scored centuries but could not win matches for India.....

Posted by jonesytoo on (March 17, 2012, 15:28 GMT)

Congratulations Sachin! This clearly proves you are not only the best batsmen to play the game but also the greatest human being who has ever lived. Shame on Bangladesh for concentration on trivialities like winning the match instead of your incredible milestone. Almost as bad as those arrogant Aussies celebrating a 4-0 whitewash rather than acknowledging Ishant Sharma's 133rd Test wicket. Here's to more personal milestones for Indian players!

Posted by lakshitha.jayakody on (March 17, 2012, 15:26 GMT)

Unbelievable achievement!!! My god, we are lucky to witness this with our own eyes. I wish that he will reach his 50th ODI century very soon and will able to have a legendary retirement.

For all those bashing SRT, its ironic coz u all like him hence u go through the pain of logging in Cricinfo and be heard. No other cricketer in the world draws > 1000 comments. That is also a record. Its pure envy that makes you guys to bash such a legend coz there is no one of such stature representing ur own country. Bring it on as our love/regard/respect for SR, DRAVID,GANGULY,LAX, will not diminish. By the SRT has made it to Sportscnter in theUS as well, only cricketer to be mentioned on SC in US.

a good batting feast from sachin tendulkar but again bad luck for team india

Posted by theRule19 on (March 17, 2012, 14:48 GMT)

Congrats to Sachin..well now, hope he retires and makes way for another really deserving player in his place. And the selectors should think hard for including paceless Praveen Kumar, Vinay Kumar and Irfan Pathan..One medium pace bowler in the team should be allowed but you cannot expect to win games with all three playing together in the team..For that you need atleast two genuine fast bowlers..No matter how good your batting line up is.

Posted by Al_Bundy1 on (March 17, 2012, 14:43 GMT)

Excellent analysis by @LillianThomson - Tendulkar reached his peak in 2003. Tendulkar now is like the 1996 Javed Miandad or the 1994-95 Gooch and Gatting. Has-beens who could only scratch around for runs, and who could no longer handle top bowlers on testing surfaces. He slowed down to complete his personal landmark. In previous match when he scored only 6 runs, India scored more than 300 and won comfortably. I would prefer a 10dulkar who scores only 6 runs to a 10dulkar who scores a century.

Posted by kunderanengineer on (March 17, 2012, 14:42 GMT)

To all those ridiculing a 38 year old man who just scored his 100th ton in international cricket, I have only one question for you: how many of you are able to bend down and touch your toes?

Posted by andrew27994 on (March 17, 2012, 14:39 GMT)

India should not feel too depressed about this loss and feel that they are under pressure. Bangladesh were good in this tournament. India's batsmen were clearly the best in the tournament but their bowlers need to perform. I back India to win tomorrow against Pakistan because Pakistan have a few weaknesses in their batting line-up which might give India an advantage. Pakistan's spinners have been superb but we know India's batsmen are better against spin than pace. Also India are reasonably good in chasing but Pakistan are the opposite. So India shouldn't mind either batting 1st or 2nd. But of course I say this without underestimating Pakistan's bowlers. They are the real hurdle but I still back India to win the battle.

Posted by andrew27994 on (March 17, 2012, 14:29 GMT)

Another pleasing thing to see about Bangladesh is that they had a proper plan while batting. They kept wickets in hand which helped them make good use of the death overs. Tamim Iqbal is the real reason that Bangladesh look competitive in this tournament as he has provided a solid foundation for the others to capitalise on in the last 10 overs. Bangladesh's only problem in this tournament is that their bowlers haven't got early wickets to keep the pressure but they have been the best bowling team in the death overs of a match. So keep up the good work Bangladesh and hope you will continue to impress in the upcoming matches and even continue your success for a long-term period.

Posted by bul98 on (March 17, 2012, 14:29 GMT)

Congrats Sachin for making another world record, the only Batsman who have scored the most hundreds (25) and his team lost. The whole India (Media) is just talking about Sachin 100 but not a sigle word that team India (WC) lost against BD.

Posted by IndiaPunjab on (March 17, 2012, 14:22 GMT)

to ''Jason Herft'' Have you not seen Tendulkars record outside India? If you have you would not say such things. Have a look . You will be highly embarrassed.

Posted by IndiaPunjab on (March 17, 2012, 14:19 GMT)

Tendulkar has dominated since 17 ''smjr'', can you name someone who has dominated cricket from the age of 17? Were any of those players you mentioned good enough to play the way he did from such a young age? And with all the technology thesedays batsman weaknesses are pinpointed immediately. Tendulkar still has scored hundreds upon hundreds against every team in every nation. Hes been playing for 20 years against every bowling attack possible in every kind of track, and has got 100 100s . Joint or 2nd best after Bradman. Bradman said it himself aswell.

Posted by Kays789 on (March 17, 2012, 14:12 GMT)

after struggling for an year against better opposition the 'god' scores a hundred against bangladesh in bangladesh. and then india go on to lose. sometimes cricket can be so predictable!

Posted by MostCulturedAussieLesPatterson on (March 17, 2012, 14:10 GMT)

All you guys who are knocking Sachin - just remember that he will forever remain in the record books as a great sportsman who was well respected and admired by his peers and fellow cricketers both, for his skill and his conduct, not least of all by Sri Don Bradman and Sir Garry Sobers. His achievements will shine on forever; whereas your comments will receive a passing glance, if that - nobody will remember your names. When you achieve something and are somebosdy whose opinions are noteworthy, please come back!

Posted by IndiaPunjab on (March 17, 2012, 14:01 GMT)

There are a lot of people ignoring basic facts here, and a lot of jealousy. How many matches would ponting of won if he had the bowling attack of India? Indias bowling attack in the last 20 years has been pretty much the worst in the world. Bowlers win matches, how is it sachins fault that his bowlers cannot win India matches after he scores hundreds against every team? It was only his first ODI hundred against Bangladesh yesterday. People need to look at his records against the best aka Australia whom he has scored the most hundreds against.

Posted by N-O-M-A-N on (March 17, 2012, 13:53 GMT)

He plays only for himself not for team! He is just want 100s not win!

I'm lucky to be born in this time to see such an achievement! To all those whining about it and jumping around, you gotta love and understand the game called 'Cricket'!

Posted by LillianThomson on (March 17, 2012, 13:36 GMT)

People are completely missing the point when they compare the 2012 Tendulkar with the pre-2007 one. He used to have great hand-eye coordination and timing when he was at his peak, and could dominate attacks in ODIs, which by definition are played on flat tracks without catchers and where the best bowlers are limited both in overs bowled and short deliveries. But Tendulkar now is like the 1996 Javed Miandad or the 1994-95 Gooch and Gatting. Has-beens who could only scratch around for runs, and who could no longer handle top bowlers on testing surfaces. My son is 10, and knows Tendulkar only as a graceless has-been clinging on by his fingernails while pulling faces every time he gets himself out. If he had quit when he first had a horror run, in 2007 or 2008, his reputation would be intact, and people outside India would still consider him an all-time great. But he has had so many years of Test underachievement outside India at the end of his career that he will never reclaim that. Sad.

Many congratulations to Sachin on completing his 100th century but he did not need his 100th century to tell the world he was the best and most resilient batsman. He was supported very well by a very loyal fan base and cricket board through his tough times. No matter how well Bangladesh played to win the game yesterday they were still the underdogs and no matter how much one tries to flaunt Sachin's 100th century you cannot ignore the fact that as world champions India lost to Bangladesh. One can't separate Sachin's 100th international century from India's loss to Bangladesh. This massive occasion for Sachin yesterday was tainted by that one big fact.

Posted by 2.14istherunrate on (March 17, 2012, 13:30 GMT)

Congratulations to the Little Master!!! 100 100's is really out of this world. I thought he might make it in this game. it doesn't matter 'cos these milestones generally don't just happen and really take a lot of getting( cp Ramprakash's 100th 100 which took ages relatively). Anyway what an achievement! I cannot see the point in someone retiring if they are still good/great and there sure ain't a talent like that on the horizon in Indian cricket- just a few second /third raters. Those drives are still elevated artistry,sir!!!

Posted by smjr on (March 17, 2012, 13:23 GMT)

Tendulkar is a very modest & generous cricketer and a true ambassador of world cricket. He is lucky to be born in India otherwise he perhaps may not be able to play so many test matches and may not score 100 centuries.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 13:22 GMT)

Another hundred for Sachin and another loss for India!! Probably has the record for the most hundreds scored in losing causes!!

Anyways this record going to stand for ever or a very long time!! Until another Indian batsmen, who will be playing majority of his cricket on Indian flat pitches and who plays international cricket for 20 plus years, comes up!!

Posted by smjr on (March 17, 2012, 13:14 GMT)

Congratulations to Sachin for getting 100 century in international cricket,but i dont know why there is hype created especially by indian media and fans about Tendulkar tagging him the greatest batsman of all time. I believe if Viv Richards, Miandad, Lara, Sobers, George Headley, Len Hutton, Barry Richards, Greg Chappel etc got so many frequent test matches in their days and also got backing & pampering from their Boards, selectors, media, and people from ugly politics than they will be better than Tendulkar. By the way Tendukar has played so many test matches than any other guy has played so naturally he will score more centuries and therefore more runs than any body else. It is the test average that must be reckoned.His average is 54 so he is not above the names mentioned above. He has not scored a tripple century in test match. He is not the greatest batsman of all time but a very good batsman of his era.

India lost the match due to this slow hundred...is it still important? If so, you have your priorities wrong.

WOW against Bangaladesh, just like he waqs impossible get lbw by Indian umpires when playing on their own soil!!! Tells a lot about the record!!

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 12:13 GMT)

I see comments here pointing towards selfishness on Sachin's part. 100 centuries is a massive personal milestone. Everybody on this planet has the right to aim for excellence in their fields. The fact that most of us don't is our failure. The comments here point to bitterness and jealousy against a man who is able to achieve what he is capable of. Blaming him for the defeat when he was the only centurion, who helped a team score 289 runs is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Almost as ridiculous as someone blaming dilshan for a slow 160 when india chased down 320 in less than 40 overs. The fact that India could not contain bangladesh to 289 is a disgrace, bowling full tosses at the death is the reason for the loss. People forget that in Australia he was still one of the best in the team. Did anyone see the kind of shots he was playing? It did not look like a man out of form. Nobody has been able to show that they are better than sachin yet, and he is still the best india has.

Posted by Windows9 on (March 17, 2012, 11:29 GMT)

Many people spoke about how Sachin slowed down as he neared his century. Ok, he was at fault, but India lost mainly because of its bowlers. They gave 124 runs in last 14 overs. About midway, in the game the asking run rate was 8 for Bangladesh. The bowlers could have then contained them easily. The fact is that Bangladesh played perfectly with the target in mind, as if they knew that Indian bowlers would not be able to bowl carefully in death overs. Even if the Indian score would have been 300 or 310, the Bangladeshis would have then started accelerating a little before and again might have won the game. And why blame Sachin, Kohli also played slowly. Ok, Sachin was at fault, but more so were the bowlers.

Posted by Stark62 on (March 17, 2012, 11:14 GMT)

It was a master stroke from BD!

They knew the emphasis would be on Sachin's 100th 100 and therefore, allowed him to reach that milestone but knowing he will play slowly.

I mean, if BD nearly chased down 270 odd against Pak with their bowling attack then, what chance did the Indian attack have?

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 11:13 GMT)

For those who are saying sachin is selfish look at these records.Among the hundred 100s, India didn't lost the game in 73 matches, lost the game in 25 games and 2 have no result(1 is rain halted game and other is against tie England in WC 2011). For me his best innigs always came in loosing causes(like one in sharjha, in chennai against PAK, 175 against AUS etc.). As for this match it is true inability of our bowlers cos 289 against Bangladesh is more than enough.

i love it becous we love the game and players who play it ,not the countries playing it.sachin u rock'

Posted by praveen4honestremark on (March 17, 2012, 11:06 GMT)

There is more important point that can be made on Sachin Tendulkar batting. I would ask all of Indians which will prove whether Sachin is match winner, not a record chaser , team player or not ? to yourself. The questions to test this is simple :" How many times you felt secured that Indian team can fight back, can chase, no middle order collapse will happen and he will take India till the end in his entire career of 20 years,and how many times your heart was not in mouth and you felt relaxed . Like how relaxed we feel while Dravid is batting as we know Dravid can help India.... and how many times you felt very angry for Sachin's pathetic shots and slow playing when he approaches milestones and 100's , thinking of it more than team....just compare him to Dravid ( who is Ideal team person), then you can get an answer from your hearts.Cricinfo please publish this so every fellow Indian will get an answer from himself.

Posted by composemi on (March 17, 2012, 10:59 GMT)

Thank you Sachin for your 100th 100. If it wasn't for your brilliant innings, Bangladesh would've been lost. What a way to achieve such a milestone.. on a losing cause.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 10:59 GMT)

I do not understand why everyone keeps praising Sachin, he is not a good batsman, the only reason he got his 100th century is because he's been playing for GAZILLION years so its commonsense eventually you will hit a mile stone one else has

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 10:56 GMT)

Many congratulations to Sachin on completing his 100th century but he did not need his 100th century to tell the world he was the best and most resilient batsman. He was supported very well by a very loyal fan base and cricket board through his tough times. No matter how well Bangladesh played to win the game yesterday they were still the underdogs and no matter how much one tries to flaunt Sachin's 100th century you cannot ignore the fact that as world champions India lost to Bangladesh. One can't separate Sachin's 100th international century from India's loss to Bangladesh. This massive occasion for Sachin yesterday was tainted by that one big fact.

Posted by ashishtru on (March 17, 2012, 10:45 GMT)

One should retire or get dropped from the team when there are 11 better players available. If Sachin's performance is at the bottom among current team players and there are players outside who can perform better than Sachin then only one should talk about his retirement. It is not school or college function where everyone should get a chance to perform irrespective of talent.

Posted by dinuhebbar on (March 17, 2012, 10:12 GMT)

In pursuit of 100th 100, India ended how many run short....who knows? If team comes ahead..why everyone cheers 100th hundred ignoring humiliating defeat? There is nothing wrong in being cricket crazy....but lacking pride for the nation to celebrate personal milestone...God only can save this country.

before posting comments on Sachin, please check the below link. David Warner has also played similar innings like Sachin. Lost the match coz of bowlers and captaincy. http://www.espncricinfo.com/commonwealth-bank-series-2012/engine/match/518969.html

Posted by Johnny_129 on (March 17, 2012, 10:11 GMT)

@ Micky.Panda on (March 17 2012, 06:57 AM GMT) - you have got your theory slightly wrong, my friend. SRT is an opener and he cannot be expected to have the strike rate of a Raina and a Dhoni...or any other lower/ middle order batsman in ODIs!!! SRT's strike rate is comparable to the best of openers around the world (Sehwag and Jayasuriya aside - they are/ were smashers) while his run aggregate is far superior! Bottom line is that Team India is crap! Although they are good/ great at times (eg. WC win), they do not maintain the high standards like Aus. India needs to find very good bowlers who can bowl well in all conditions, consistently and improve fielding standards (eg. when was the last time an Indian fieder scored a direct hit to run someone out). THAT IS THE TRUTH!

Posted by Wattoo777 on (March 17, 2012, 10:11 GMT)

The Great SACHIN got 8 innings vs ENG in ENG and got 8 in TESTS and 8 in ODIS in AUS. But he didnt scored 100 there.Sorry as per SACHIIN he was luckless there.That means SACHIN admitting that he scores the 100 only by LUCK. Then he made available for ASIA cup to get his 100th 100.but he didnt scored vs SL. He scored VS BAN that too in very slow manner.By that itself we can believe that he always plays for himself and for records not for his country.

very selfish character Tendulkar,he played 150 balls and scored only 110 odd runs ,i predicted India will lose if he plays like that. Time now to show him the door,.

Every one complaining about sachin scoring the century against Bangladesh must remember that this is first century against Bangladesh in ODI's and he has scored more centuries against Australia .

Senseless hundred by master batsmen sachin,did he waste too many deliveries like yesterday's match if he plays for mumbai indians?

Posted by Naveed_Pak on (March 17, 2012, 9:55 GMT)

Another great individual record by a great player which can not be broken on a day when great Indian nation faced greatest humiliation, even then showing their greatness by praising their one and only great Sachin. I am so confused whether should I give a round of applause or sympathize indian nation. But there is no confusion in my mind to applaud Mr. SR Tendulkar on achieving another milestone. Real God of indian nation who always performs against them and still winning the hearts and minds of 1.3 Billion poor people of India.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 9:54 GMT)

Congratulation to Tendulkar for his 100th hundred. Every time since Tendulkar is playing cricket whenever he got 100 his team will lose. A hilarious shame to a Indian Team

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 17, 2012, 9:51 GMT)

Arguements like all those who play that many matches will beat his record are baseless. I would like to see if any cricketer at the age of 16 face the fastest bowlers in the world in foreign conditions and score centuries. The fact is that no cricketer has the passion and hunger to play as long as he did. People like Lara were great but they didnt have the longevity and stamina to play for such long periods of time with such childlike vigor. I would like to see how many matches players like Ponting and Vivian Richards would have won if they had a bowling attack like India.

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 17, 2012, 9:44 GMT)

@mickeyPanda Any other team would have been able to defend 290 on such a pitch against Bangladesh. Bangladesh played well but when you bowl waist high full toss after full toss obviously you are going to get hit. Takes the pitch completely out of the picture. When India defended 300 why couldn't we defend 290?

Posted by Perera32 on (March 17, 2012, 9:39 GMT)

I came onto cricinfo to see the asia cup rankings, and then saw Bangladesh won by 5 wickets on the top right of screen. OMG Hahahahahaha INDIA, where are the indian fans gone????. Cannot win in England, Australia and now cannot win in the sub continent. I dont care about Tendulkars 100th 100, took him more than a year to get to it, couldn't get it in england and australia. Then he got it in the flattest pitch in the world vs one of the worst bowling attacks. They wouldn't of won the world cup if it wasnt in their own backyard. India face it you guys are overrated!!.

Posted by balajik1968 on (March 17, 2012, 9:17 GMT)

Finally the monkey is off his back. To all those critics, don't trash this because it is against Bangladesh. To those who call him a flat track bully, let me point out that Ponting's record in India is not great,but that does not diminish him, and also that Tendulkar has scored runs everywhere. Sure he has'nt done well in the last one year, but after the 2007 World Cup and till the end of the 2011 World Cup he did very well. For those who keep saying he is blocking younger players, no young player is actually beating the door down and staking a strong claim to the Test team. And as for the LOI team, he has been semi-retired in the ODI matches for nearly 4 years. Yet the only player to have truly nailed down his spot in the last 4 years is Kohli. So do you blame Tendulkar for the incompetence of the younger players? Guys get some perspective, don't just talk nonsense. Enjoy Tendulkar when you can, which will not be for long.

quite strange..for personal milestone india lost the match to bangladesh...yet another century from sachin couldn't buy them a match...not good...but then congratulations on getting the 100th 100 - finally!

Posted by Amsyrocker on (March 17, 2012, 8:55 GMT)

For those who say he scored his 100th century against weak Bangla and not against Aus, Eng,SA knw the fact its his first ODi 100 against Bangaldesh, he has nothing to prove.. All people blaming Sachin should know that this guy is serving India from the days we all were in our primary schools, he was best then, best today and ever will be. As far as Ind loss to BD goes, it's on bowlers who bowled low full toss and half volleys with speed of 125 km / hr, which is truly not what an international teams attack should be. Throw out Pravin, R Vinay, jadeja specially, get Yadav and Varun Aaron plus play Irfan/Yusuf as allrounders. Before anything else MSD should be removed from captaincy, he is good WK/ batsman, but not a good captain.

@Farhan Khan,@TopOrder @kcpingle <== how many runs did you scored international cricket circuit? did you ever stand in middle of the ground to face the a bowling machine or a bowler? do you have any kinda knowledge about scoring runs? and than 50's and 100's? and than scoring 10th 100's? that too in One day international? and ever think about 100 one day hundreds? did you ever run between the wicket against any international players? how many bowlers did you ever faced ? do you know or ever heard about Curtley Ambrose ? or Glenn mcGrath? or even Ion Bishop they are to the world most scary weapon of bowling. if you can meet sachin, you can ask all of those.

It's a myth that whenever Tendulkar makes a century, India loses. Out of the 100 international centuries he has made, 54 have resulted in wins and 24 have resulted in losses.

Posted by Spelele on (March 17, 2012, 8:02 GMT)

With all due respect to Tendulkar (I actually respect the fact that he has managed a record that will never be broken) but his record, at best, displays longevity; nothing more! The fact that he has scored his 100th in a losing cause, against Bangladesh in a meaningless match in the Asia Cup pretty much sums his whole career up really. Ask yourself this question. Why did the 100th 100 not come in any of the important overseas matches when India were getting whitewashed and needed him the most?

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 7:39 GMT)

after reading few of the comments here i am forced to think most of us (Indians) don't think before we say we love cricket , and watch it but never understands . India lost to Bangladesh only bcs of ur poor bowling attach not bcs god of cricket made a century , batsman can only give a nice score for team which they did 290 was a very good total against any good team but if we r going to bowl like yesterday then even i state level team will chase it down. what shacin has done over a period of 22 years in international cricket is unbelievable he is gentleman , people r talking about his 100th century n media giving it alot if hype wt they have to do sell them out , but according to me he is such a player that when he comes to bat in a game he make a new record breaking is old one such in case of runs or anything else . He is the greatest batsman ever no doubt in that.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 7:37 GMT)

I really think ppl are being unfair to the Maestro. Its a brilliant achievement. He batted well in my opinion. It was only after after 85-87 runs he reallly started to drop anchor some what to get to his 100. He culd do that cuz Virat was playing nice.

As far as strike rates are concerned, IND achieved 293. That is good score. You cant blame batting after ur bowlers were unable to defend such a total. You also have to credit BAN batsmen for their performance. Its not a one time thing, they came quite close with PAK as well.

To enable Sachin creat history we Indians have lost our pride by losing to Bangladesh. If it was Australia they would have thanked & dropped him for next ODI for slow strike rate.

Posted by kcpingle on (March 17, 2012, 7:15 GMT)

If one just divides his total number runs 33854, by his total of innings 763 ( tests + ODI ), then this contribution is the highest amongst batsmen who have played atleast 25% of his total innings ( 190 innings minimum ) !! This is some "contribution" to his team and the game of cricket !!

Posted by Micky.Panda on (March 17, 2012, 6:57 GMT)

We can't blame batsmen? Off course we can. To those who say that ST is not the whole team, and its up to others to do their bit, they are only partially right. Sure we would like the bowlers to contain better. Clearly this was not an easy pitch to contain on or do Bangladesh have the better bowlers? The problem is if a batsman, eats up too many deliveries out of the 300 or so total, it leaves his team-mates a much more difficult job to reach a big score. Raina and Dhoni would have to push the run rate all the harder because of the prior slow batsmen. Now if every batsman had scored at same rate as ST, the total would have been significantly lower and easily achieved by the "minnow". We are not Sachin haters at all. He is clearly a super test player, as are some others with even higher batting averages. Its just in ODIs, he has disappointed us on occasions, by not not playing only for the team.

Posted by cricket.lover.at.his.best on (March 17, 2012, 6:44 GMT)

And why don`t you people give credit to Bangladesh............ If they play well or the bowlers can`t defend the total, then it is Sachin`s fault ????????? I know it was a slow innings by his standards but It was also a great chase by any standards by Bangladesh and poor bowling by any standards by Indian bowlers. Why don`t you comment on that ???????????????????????

Posted by LillianThomson on (March 17, 2012, 6:39 GMT)

@Divinetouch suggests that I "learn the game" before disputing that Tendulkar is the greatest batsman ever. Yet Bradman's Test record is almost twice as good, in spite of only ever facing England and South Africa, on uncovered pitches without a helmet against a faster bowler (Larwood) than Tendulkar has ever had to face! A decade ago Tendulkar was one of the world's top three batsmen, behind only Lara and Ponting. Now he continues to ruin his reputation by scratching around long after Sangakkara, Jayawardene, Kallis, Amla, de Villiers, Younis Khan and Clarke have become significantly better batsmen than what is left of Tendulkar. He could have left as a great, one of the 50 best players ever, but now he will be remembered as a less good player than several other Indians and Pakistanis, with Kapil Dev, Gavaskar, Imran Khan, Wasim Akram and Waqar all clearly ahead of him in the Pantheon of All-Time Greats. You can't be remembered as a great if you outstay your welcome.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 6:38 GMT)

@EdJoseph I think you should make a few alterations to your statement. Tendulkar is the greatest INDIAN batsman ever. Bradman is the greatest BATSMAN ever. That would seem to be more factually correct.

Posted by cricket.lover.at.his.best on (March 17, 2012, 6:35 GMT)

Till yesterday, everyone was waiting for the moment, even yesterday when he really scored the century everyone was praising him and and nobody was complaining about the pace of the innings..... When India finished at 289 even then everyone in India was very confident and happy......... All of a sudden when Indian bowlers fail to defend that good total everyone starts spoiling the great achievement of the man. Nobody criticizes the bowling that was pathetic but they criticize the batsman who scored 100 runs for the team.......... What pathetic mentality........... In fact it is the case for both Indian and Pakistani fans..... From a Pakistani............

For all Sachin Bashers who says that he plays for records. Look at what happened in the Post Match Presentation. BCB President rightfully honoured this grand achievement by presenting a plaque, and SRT could not even smile, as the Team Loss affected him more than the happiness of creating history. That is SRT. Pure dedication to the country. It was a stunning opportunity for the world to see his human side of how he was feeling hollow inspite of creating BIGGEST HISTORY, because his Team Lost. We don't need such acts from him to prove that he plays for contributing to team's winning cause. Just an opportunity for the nay sayers to understand the pshycology of true great legend. Same with all legends. Look at Dravid in ENG. He couldn't smile despite 450+runs in toughest conditions. We are all blessed to see these stalwarts wearing IND colours with a sole aim to achieve victory for Team India. Same goes with SMG, Kapil, Anil, VVS, Sourav. GOD BLESS GOD

it is not glorous from Sachin because every one play 461 odi and 188 tests will score 100 or more then 100 centuries and if he was great he could complete it aginst Aus or SL or Eng or other contry.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 6:09 GMT)

To those critics of Sachin, have you ever let him alone? - whenever he got out at the crucial time, he was blamed for india's loss - whenever he did not score, he was blamed for india's loss - whenever he scored and India lost, he was blamed for India's loss - whenever he broke milestones which are just stones on his path, he was blamed as selfish guy playing for records - whenever he made money (for a great player, money will come to him and he does not need to go after it), he was blamed as money minded

Who cares? I am lucky to see a once in generation play. This is what I will tell my grand children. If tendulkar retired now, you know what will happen.......you all will 100% brand him saying that he played ONLY to get his 100th 100. Carrying the burden of 1 billion people's expectation that he should score a century everytime he goes out to bat for 23 years and taking all the above criticisms from you guys and yet performing and being humble on and off the field, only Sachin can do

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 17, 2012, 5:56 GMT)

tendulkar's hundred was at a strike rate of 78 whereas kohli scored at 80. Then why all the fuss. Kohli also played slowly and did not play big shots.

The value of a person is known or realised only when we start missing that person. E.g. Gavaskar, Kapil (still searching !), Kumble, Ganguly, Now Dravid. And soon VVS & SRT. We must learn to enjoy whatever little (1 to 2 years of cricket) this genius boy is to offer to the world, for he is once in a century player (ot Generation). He is the complete batsmen for all seasons, all opponents, all conditions. Look at his record. What the legend Rahul Dravid did in England in 2011 (Lone warrior in a loosing cause and trying to gather some respect for Team India as others failed around him), SRT was doing this for almost a decade (till RD & VVS propsered). I am of SRT's age, and my life has revolved around his as well as Team India's progress. Probably for Gen Next & Next Next, may not understand & appreciate what SRT is to India is. Trains run late when he is at the crease because the driver, Guard & passengers wants to see GOD batting. Can't be explained. You need to feel it. PHENOMENON

Not Again !!!! Yet another loss that too against Bangladesh !! that too when Lill Master made a ton. What a superstitious.

He's all time great cricketer not just for his records but also for his humble character in & off the field. Congraaaaaaaaaaaats Lill Master.

I watched until Bangladesh was 105/1 then went to play football thinking that India will win by 40 - 50 runs, But got shocked when I came back & wanted to confirm that India won, but by how many runs ??! Won but not India, Bangladesh won surprisingly, then watched the highlights, they really played upto their potential.

One more thing, at the beginning of Asia Cup, I'd said to friends that, this time Bangladesh will at least one match either against SL or PAK or IND, but they've won again most strongest team IND, it's unbelievable but not really for some reasons: 1. This Bangladesh team is most strongest team ever in their history, with full of talents & potential. 2. They're playing are a unit. Good luck BNG.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 5:15 GMT)

Congrats to Sachin, India and every self respecting cricket lover out there! Only after he made it, it seems possible, 100 hundreds. How easy it is to say this but only a little time ago it seemed a task only hercules could dare to achieve! But a humane human made it possible through sheer talent and gritty hard work. As luck would have it, his efforts at making quite a few 100's often were unfruitful to make his team a winner, and that was a pity! Had Indian team a reasonable good bowling attack during all those years they would have been unbeatable! Now for future batsman, here is a milestone you'd be hard pressed to reach. Who knows how long will it take for sachin's successors to reach it? Now's the time to rejoice in the feat, not to criticize him on why it took so much time to go 100 from 99 in every sense. We must refrain from telling him when to retire as a player of his calibre doesn't need to be told, he wolud know it when its not left in him anymore! We can wait happily!

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 5:03 GMT)

hey guys if he hadn't been so cautious it would have cost india so many more centuries in the days to come...think of that....run rate got slow after he got out...48 and 49 yielded less than 10 runs....Didn't you see the match asad

Sanath Jayasuriya has score 28 ODI hundreds, and Sri Lanka have won 25 of the matches. Thats is a match winner my friends (90% win ration when Sanath scores a hundred). Sachin 71% win ratio. Mahela Jayawardena has a 93 % win ration when he scores a hundred. (14 out of 15 hundreds)

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 17, 2012, 3:58 GMT)

This is completely unfair to the Maestro. Don't give importance to the actual 100th but the other 99 before and bradmanisque feat itself. Its about the journey he took as a 16 year old boy destroying the best bowling attacks in the world. I mean think of all the matches he has won single handed. I would like you to check the coca cola cup in 1999 against Australia where India had to win a match to make the finals. Sachin made a blazing hundred in that match and in the final against Aus to win us the cup in Sharjah. It was after that match that a commentator said that if there was a batsman as close to Bradman it would be him. Give credit to the 20 centuries he scored against Australia, the centuries he scored in all conditions and the passion he has for cricket not the actual 100 itself.

Posted by HimelC on (March 17, 2012, 3:54 GMT)

Dear Indian Fans- A simple question to you all: Which one is a more glorious feat? -100 Test wins for the country as Ponting achieved, or -100 individual tons as Sir Sachin achieved However, neither may ever be emulated!!

Posted by mlkt on (March 17, 2012, 3:54 GMT)

well done team india....our captained announced before the world cup that they want to win WC for Sachin...they won it somehow despite of poor bowling displays in many matches(even in ireland match)...rumours of matchfixing are still there.........sachin atlast got to his hundred but the team lost...his slow batting did contribute to the loss but this is a team loss.......the entire team should be blamed for the loss....sachin was not gettin his 100 against eng, WI, AUS, SL...now he got the oppurtunity to make his landmark against a weaker team and he made it.....this cannot be called selfishness...BUT I BELIEVE THAT RICKY PONTING' s RECORD OF 100 TEST WINS (WITH ACTIVE CONTRIBUTION IN MANY OF THEM) IS MUCH BIGGER ACHIEVEMENT THAN JUST ACCUMULATING 100 CENTURIES......tendulkar is approaching 200 tests...and he might not have even 70 test wins to his credit........

Posted by Just_Do_It_Now on (March 17, 2012, 3:52 GMT)

Congrats Sachin ! Although this was not one of your best 100's, scoring 100 centuries at international level is no joke & the coming time will witness the fact that SACHIN is indeed "GOD OF CRICKET". ASIA is LUCKY to have the BEST in all 3 departments : BEST BATSMAN OF ALL THE TIME - The Legandry Sachin BEST FAST BOWLER OF ALL THE TIME - The Legandry Wasim Akram BEST SPIN BOWLER OF ALL THE TIME - The Legandry Murlidharan

Posted by vishnu1503 on (March 17, 2012, 3:46 GMT)

Agreed that Sachin played slowly when he was nearing his 100 & agreed that the 100 may have been top of his mind rather than the team run rate. However we need to be aware that the pressure built on Sachin was entirely the fault of the media, they invented the 100th 100 statistic & they built the pressure on him, I am quite sure that even Sachin would not have bothered about this record until the media started hyping it. This created an immense amount of pressure on him, resulting in him underperforming. It is quite ironical that after the media and public put so much pressure on him and forced him to nearly buckle under the pressure, everyone is now sitting back and blaming him for India's loss? He is still one of the best batsmen we have and I am glad the 100 is now out of the way as he will be able to focus more on his batting and the team. He is a human being after all & anyone of lesser ability like you & me would have completely buckled under the presssure.

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 17, 2012, 3:45 GMT)

Check out this stat before commenting on tendulkar being a match winner or not. Out of tendulkar's 100 100s 53 have led to victories while 22 have led to defeats the rest being ties/draws. Thats a win% of 53% and a loss percent of 22%. Out of lara's 53 centuries 23 have led to victories and 17 have led to losses. That's a win% of 43% and a loss% of 32%. Now how is he a match winner while tendulkar is not? Lets face the facts. In the recent past our bowling has been pathetic. Any other quality team would have defended 290. Look at Australia defending 200.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 3:42 GMT)

Congrads. But how many of his centuries have secured victory for india. Play for the country. BUt not for the crowd, and personel proud. He completed this in 139 deliveries. mean india were short of another 20 odd runs.

Match winners do not cling to records; Record holders do not win matches! This match was more than a testimony to pity young and dressing talent.

Posted by Universalthinker on (March 17, 2012, 3:28 GMT)

Its really bad that we can't defend 290 against Bangladesh, they have batted well we should appreciate Bangladesh for excellent batting. Now, I think the match we lost is b'coz of improper utilization of resources by Dhoni, lack of line and length by bowlers. Dhoni used part timers around 10th overs, that shows he is completely off his mind. Sachin played anchor role, that in everyinnings somebody will do. Even the man in form Virat kohli strike rate is 80 in this match and sachin's is 77, so we cant blame batsman. Get ready for PAK..

Who cares, ANOTHER century against a rubbish team and ANOTHER century on a batsman's paradise in the sub continent. He had a thousand innings in Australia and couldn't do it. Talented yes but a demi god, certainly not. Lara was better and even Ponting has his number considering where these two played the most.

Posted by sports99 on (March 17, 2012, 2:28 GMT)

Hmm...865 comments already on this. Nothing to say much about it. Looks like Sachin played it like that just it's because of Media hype around 100th 100. If he doesn't score against BD then it's never ending story so at least now everybody put a rest to it and move on. Please leave Sachin alone, hope he realizes that in professional circuit blocking the opportunity to youngster is the most SIN anybody can do as He him self got the opportunity at the age of 16, so He should not block a youngster unless a valid reason, which I don't see anything.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 2:22 GMT)

I agree the circumstances in which this 100 was scored was not good, after a disappointing tour of Australia and then finally scoring one against a weak nation, but nonetheless, he will always be a champion. Also this hype about him scoring a 100 100 wasn't his fault, it was the media who put pressure on him, as sachin is a very selfless person who will always puts the team before. I hope this saga doesn't mar what has been a great career.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 0:29 GMT)

The whole team needs to take blame. Bangladesh almost chased 270 odd against Pak. We would have needed at least 310 to win with our average bowling attack. Sachin needs to take the blame for slow batting during power plays when we still had wickets in hands. His only aim was to get his 100th 100. I think after Gavasker the most selfish player to play for India. Kapok Dev, Sehwag, Dravid are the real example of team players.

Posted by Lord_Dravid on (March 17, 2012, 0:28 GMT)

sachin's century in this match had nothing to do with the loss..i just think we took a laid back approach because we were playing BD..afterall one or two shock results does happen as history suggests, but that is not to say BD are a good side they are still very poor and in my opinion not worthy of test status.

Posted by   on (March 17, 2012, 0:22 GMT)

Many Congratulations to S. R. Tendulkar..... Finally He Got the Milestone.... :-) Shame On those people, Who are blaming Tendulkar For Loss !! India lost only because of their bowling & fielding department..... 280 is more than enough to secure a win at Mirpur... This is not fair to blame Sachin Tendulkar for killing 30 extra balls.... Bowlers are the actual culprit.....

Cause-

A bit frustrated and disappointed in you Mr. Tendulkar. I love the way this man has played the game of Cricket, with such elegance and poise. Regardless of some other comments, he deserves this accolade. However, it's taken so long to get this last hundred that the gloss has almost been 100% taken off for my mind. One cannot help but think in the last few months particularly, he has been playing for himself.

Posted by kunderanengineer on (March 16, 2012, 23:33 GMT)

To all those Sachin detractors who keep repeating ad nauseam that this century doesn't count because it was achieved against a "minnow", I would just like to remind them that if BD is such an irrelevant team then how is it that in their last 5 ODIs including this one, of which 4 were played against arguably the best team in this tournament (Pakistan), only one player managed to score a century against them? Guess who? Secondly, why is there this absolute necessity that this particular ton had to come against a "real" team? If Federer were to end his career this year by winning a glamourless tournament by beating the 31st ranked player in the world rather than Djokovic or Nadal does that nullify all the grand slam tournaments he's won in the past? It's not as if Sachin scored 90 of his tons against BD on flat tracks. He is not GOD but let's just say that he certainly has to go down in history as one of the greatest batsmen of all time whether you like him or not. Just ask Bradman.

Posted by dilscoop_uk on (March 16, 2012, 23:29 GMT)

Last time some years back Indian media and public started calling for his retirement , and I didnt like it . But now I seriously believe he should say goodbye with dignity and respect before its too late . From Pakistan.

Posted by Indiaforever on (March 16, 2012, 23:19 GMT)

I understand that Sachin batted very slowly but at the end of the day we still scored 290 and surely that is defendable against a Bangladesh team who is not the best in the world, its also a bit unfair on everyone criticising Sachin for the loss and no one else. Kohli didnt have a great strike rate, no ones criticising him? Overall it was the bowling which let us down again. Well done Sachin on finally getting his 100th 100 and i hope he plays for longer, we all need him too.We have won more than 30 times when Sachin scored a 100 so dont say that when he scores a hundred we will lose because that is very untrue.

Posted by JoseBautista on (March 16, 2012, 23:14 GMT)

congrats to sachin! great player, stop complaining guys! i hate how you guys are fighting saying sachin is better than dravid and all that! they both were legends and we may never see this type of combo ever again in cricket....respect them both, sachin wouldn't have been this great if dravid wasn't there, and same thing maybe applied to dravid. I love dravid and i do think he is underrated compared to sachin, but both are class legends and should be respected.

I can't believe the number of "fans" saying tendulkars ton cost india the game..utter rubbish.this is not ipl/t20 cricket..strike ra tes are not that important..what is important is setting an imposing total and defending it..the point is that a) Bangladesh played out of their skins to reach that total and well done to them for that, and b) the Indian bowlers failed to defend a good total..there are far too many fair weather Indian "fans" on here who are the first to moan if your team lose and can't admit you lost to the better team on the day..as for srt,it's disgusting the way some Indians are putting him down,maybe they were watching other sports when he saved them single handedly SO many times in the past...

Posted by bowzer on (March 16, 2012, 22:20 GMT)

Come on guys....... whatever you all say this gut is a genius. It is a twist of tale that India has lost matches when he has made centuries, on the other hand he has single handedly won games for India. Says time will heal... and so it will. More than arguing let us support our team even if they lose, instead of complaining about them all the time. Look at the Lankans for example.

To those who are angry with Sachin about his slow scoring rate, please cut him some slack. I was also angry at him initially. Granted if Sachin hadn't batted slowly and had speed up his batting a little bit,we might have ended with 320 - 330 runs and that could have won the match for us. But I must say that 290 runs against a Bangladesh team should have been defended. A poor performance from our bowlers at the death to lose the match. Also granted that from 80 to 100, it looked like Sachin was playing for the milestone than for the team. But again this has been a huge burden for him for the last year now and has been blown out of proportion by the media. So please cut him some slack

Posted by CaptainKool on (March 16, 2012, 21:53 GMT)

Well done Little Master. Congratulations!! Some of the people have big mouth but it doesn't matter. When you were on 99 centuries, they were saying to retire and now you got the 100th century, they are saying you are playing for records, not for the country. Team needs all11 players to contribute. You can't say due to SRT, India lost the match. Enjoy the cricket guys till he is there in world cricket and keep your criticism aside. We won't get players like him easily. Peace

Posted by JG2704 on (March 16, 2012, 21:48 GMT)

Have to say fair play to team Bangladsh too. We were beaten by them in the world cup and ironically many Indian fans constantly bring that up when trying to snipe at our side .My honest opinion is that Bangladesh are an up and coming side who will improve over the next decade and a team that on their day can beat anyone over the 50 and 20 over formats. As I said they beat England in the last world cup and I remember them beating Australia in an ODI in England. So I'm not going to try and snipe back. For one it lacks class and secondly Bangladesh are a team on the up in the shorter forms of the game.

Posted by street_smart on (March 16, 2012, 21:41 GMT)

Probably our bowlers could not have defend 320 also... the bowlers were pathetic but that doesn't mean that sachin could not be blame... the ton was for him not for the team... the curse continues.... the sluggish batting cost us the game.... there are young players waiting in the wings... whether they are good or bad we can only know once they start playing.... I can understand that sachin is still enjoying the game but we are not enjoying sachin's game anymore..... plz plz plz.... give the younsters due chance & retire gracefully....

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 21:39 GMT)

Sachin is an all time great of the game, to blame him for ineffective bowling and fielding is abit harsh. He was picked in the team he played the way he had to, to accumulate as many runs as he could for his team. What happens if he had tried to up the run rate got out and India ended up all out for 240 and the tigers chase it down in 40 overs? then he'd be attacked for throwing away his wicket and losing the game for india.

Sacchin wasted too many balls for his century, he was being defensive just to be safel but anyways bengalis played awesome.. Indian bowlers made mistakes in the ending overs, they couldn't control on their line and length, they took the pressure and it resulted into bengalis victory.. seriously Bebgalis should be in the finals, they r a good side and I hope they win some major competitions to get some recognition!!

Bangladesh did great by beating India that was amazing from them.

It would be great if Bangladesh lost the next match and India also loses the next match. this way it would be a three way tie between india, sri lanka and bangladesh would be tied with one loss each.

Or if india and Bangladesh both win their next matches then it might be a three way tie between Pakistan, india and Bangladesh. But Pakistan have a bonus point so it might not be a three way tie

Posted by Hyderabadi_Nawab on (March 16, 2012, 21:06 GMT)

congratulation's to Sachin one hundred hundreds in any format of world cricket is a great achievement you are one of the world's premier bat'smen,you are a class act,no one can take that from you,regardless of all the speculation.great job Sir.

Sachin, ... congrats on reaching 100th 100. You have some many records on your name and today because of you we lost the game... common you need 147 balls for this knock......Not sure, we have sentiment that, if you score century,....... % we loose is more.

100 against weak bowling. Congratulations for what? He was a lower club level cricketer against Australia. What ajoke master he is?

Posted by sudigaali on (March 16, 2012, 20:22 GMT)

I don't understand why people are blaming Sachin for this loss. India lost because of bad bowling. Period. Common... Dallas club bowlers could bowl better than so call India's strike bowlers Irfan and Praveen and with this kind of bowling attack no score is big enough for India. And btw when Sachin scored a century, India won 34, lost 14 and tied 1.

Posted by Balvinder_Singh on (March 16, 2012, 20:20 GMT)

Many Contratulations to SACHIN.... Sachin has made 49 centuries in ODIs and India has won 34 matches out of them and 2 were tied.

That's what i call a great achievement!! salute to u our dear sachin the god of cricket and the master blaster!!..... fans for heaven's sake dont blame sachin for the loss, ya he was slow when he reached nervous 90, but our bowlers.. crap they cant even defend such a huge total... crap with dinda n praveen kumar n ya even irfan.. half way thru i tot we won the match but at the end it was shakib n mushifqur who did it for banlga... ia on sunday we will b back n demolish pakistan!!.. hip hip hurray.........i love u mr 10dulkar...........!! once again congrts for achieving such a gr8 milestone..........

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 20:10 GMT)

I am seeing that most of them are commenting that Sachin killed more balls and took time to reach his personal mile stone, personal interest is given more weight-age than team interest, he is a selfish player etc.. Who ever is saying that please remember how you cheered for the same person a while ago. MOST IMPORTANTLY, we are playing as a TEAM. What are players at the other end doing to patch up the run rate? We still have wickets in hand, why didn't other players press the pedal to make India cross 300? After serving for so long & so much, this is not fair to blame Sachin Tendulkar for killing 30 extra balls in one innings. Indian team is not just Sachin but there are 10 others also, who should complement and contribute to the team interests. I would blame Dhoni/ Raina for not giving the call/ taking initiation to boost up the run rate. THINK WISELY DON'T JUST FOLLOW..!!

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 20:07 GMT)

Shame on Sachin and his mindless fans wo still call him GOD. I think today's inning is the worst example of selfishness. The only objective for Sachin was to get to 100, there is no doubt that had he not scored that 100 today, India would have scored 300+ and would have won. If personal milestones make a player great regardless of its impact on your team, then he has to be the greatest player.

Posted by dhekar01 on (March 16, 2012, 20:02 GMT)

Dhoni and the BOWLERS... "BLEW IT"...loud and clear. There is no other answer.

Dravid is just the opposite of Sachin when it comes to comparing centuries with team wins.hahahaha

Posted by itsthewayuplay on (March 16, 2012, 20:02 GMT)

Finally, SRT scores his 49th ODI century. Another 51 to go for a century of centuries. Nothing would give more satisfaction he could break Ricky Ponting's incredible achievement of being of 100 test victories.

Tendulkar's 50s and 80s proven to be the luckiest for India.

I cant believe there are some idiots who still discredit what sachin has done for the entire nation. These idiots wont even score a run if they were in such a situation and yet they speak as if Sachin is fool. Talking about 2003 and 2011 world cup, who brought india to the final of the world cup, it was sachins century, 2011 world cup was some what overall performance still he scored 450+ runs, In 2003, Sachin tendulkar was the highest run getter with 673, so who got team india to the final in the first place. There are only 2 great batsmen that i know of, one has recently retired and one is still playing n i hope he plays another world cup coz he still has it in him. Congrats Sachin

sachin u only play for personal records,,, u should take an example of shakib and mushfiq-ur-rahim.... in the same match shakib hit 49 off 31 balls and rahim 46 off 25 balls and they play for their country....and u played 82 dot balls just for ur personal records that costs India game and may be Asia cup.... please learn to play for country as well...

Posted by cricketisagame on (March 16, 2012, 19:49 GMT)

When compared to RD, Sachin looks like a zero. RD was always a team man. He scored runs when India needed not when his records needed. He took more catches than Sachin though he played less tests. Wonder the catches were chasing him. As a skipper he atarted that treand of winning away tests. Kept wickets, whereas Sachin even was not even ready to bat at number 3 or to open when India had almost no openers in tests during England tour but cant give up the opening slot even when Shehwag and Gambhir doing a good job in ODIs. I eagerly hope none of kids I know will take this guy as a role model. I do not want to see the future Indian team with 11 selfish players.

Posted by bd_cric_lover on (March 16, 2012, 19:46 GMT)

I dont know why people blamed schine for lose the game. I think if schine cant make the century india cant score more than 250.

Posted by SHAH_SHARABI on (March 16, 2012, 19:43 GMT)

another selfish century from a great batsman, but one who plays for himself rather than his country.....

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 19:42 GMT)

If Ponting, Lara or Kalis played this much of matches they will score more centuries than him, in that Case Kumar Sangakkara can score more runs in Test Cricket since he have more and best average then any other cricket in the present.... Murali simply took more 1300 + wickets any both format of the game, what about him, there are far more better great cricketers then this guy...

Posted by Assasinator_007 on (March 16, 2012, 19:42 GMT)

Really some idiotic comments here...what logic is SRT scoring 100 and India loosing match. Those of you who don't know cricket then let me tell you that cricket is played 11 players in each side and there are 3 aspects of it - Batting, Bowling and Fielding. SRT does his job in the batting section and rest is up to bowlers and some good fielding. Indian team has struggled in the bowling department for years...

Just learn to appreciate good work and good talent.

Posted by ballistic.dude on (March 16, 2012, 19:40 GMT)

I cant help but laugh at all critics of Sachin.. Basically losers who cant even hold a bat.. We dare all those Sachin critics out there to bat against a bunch of Bangladeshi school kids and score at least 10 runs and then question his talents... so all you Sachin critics out there... a big SNICKER!!!!

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 19:39 GMT)

finally made it but it was poor 100 rather then good, he should announce his retirement now cause it's time for him to retire cause he got 100-100 and that's why he played in Asia cup because in australia it is not possible for him to do 100-100,so mr sachin if you are clever enough you should retire now

Posted by cricketisagame on (March 16, 2012, 19:38 GMT)

To all Sachin worshippers. There are 100s of instances when Sachin scored a hundred India lost. Sachin fans usually defended it that others failed or if he did not score, the total would have been even less. Today India lost to BD just because of this guy who is always after personal glory. Can any Sachin worshippers defend him on this game. He is supposed to be the senior/best batsman but he has a lowest strike rate, even lower than Jadeja whom people thrash, against a quality BD attack (!) This is an example of how important the team for him. He was never a team man unlike the great WALL. This guy have no shame and keep playing in spite of there are loads of young talents waiting in the sidelines. When he is going to hang up his boots. Can you all worshippers tell him that he had done enough for Indian cricket and its time to say good bye and it's time for the youngsters to carry forward the team India.

Posted by Al_Bundy1 on (March 16, 2012, 19:33 GMT)

Can Bangladesh or Pakistan adopt him? That way we let him score a century so that we can win.

Posted by Glaadiater on (March 16, 2012, 19:32 GMT)

Really a shame to see so many people dissing a man who achieved a feat which is unparalleled and unheard of so far in the history of cricket. Fools are those who do not know the real numbers and think that India looses when Sachin scores a century. Please read the article by S Rajesh and see the statistics for yourselves on how many matches have his centuries won, and how many more players in the history have won more matches for their teams more than him (Just one!) before passing such foolish comments.

The game today was lost because of the ridiculously low standard of bowling. We scored almost 300 runs today, how many more runs are needed to secure a total??

And to someone who was saying that he failed to score on the big stage and gave the example of final games of the world cups, please check who was the top scorer in those two world cups - do you expect him to score and win every match, no one of the other 10 could step up after he carried them throughout the tourneys!

Posted by Ibanezfan on (March 16, 2012, 19:32 GMT)

Congrats SRT on achieving the most facile of records &, contextually, the most meaningless century in cricket history. As an Indian fan, I must say the team deserved to lose after that bowling performance. Still can't bowl yorkers at the end. & I don't understand why Irfan Pathan is in the ODI team. For reasons more wishful than practicable, it seems. Will Mohinder Amarnath please quit ruining the world cup winning team?! I'd pick Vinay Kumar over Pathan, the hunger and effort are plain to see. Can't do much about his speed I suppose, but Vinay needs to improve his death bowling. Irfan today gave a good lesson in how not to bowl at the death. And I'm not one for dismissing the Bangladesh team, unlike many of the ungracious Indian fanboys here. They played hard & fair, had a clearer plan, are hungrier than India and deserved to win after that fight back. I hope they never let Sehwag forget how terribly he insulted them. Enjoy your win Bangladesh. It will pose many right questions.

I think the way people making comment its really injustice for sachin..yes he played little slow and india batting first and after all 290 is really good total for bangladesh...on last match india score just over 300 and they beat Srilanka convincingly....today bangladesh play really well and they desrve a victory....we see people always blame him whenever india loose that his century is nothing to secure a victory..but as a opener its hard to play match winning innings and also what entire team was doing while sachin score century and give india a good total to deffend.....as a person i proud to watch great sachin playing...such a great cricketer he is....

Posted by Musafir366 on (March 16, 2012, 19:12 GMT)

I think players like, Ranatunga, M. Bevan, Inzimam, Javed Miandad, Dravid, viv richards etc are the best players. they were the players who play for the country and take control the game. not just there for records.

Tandulkar has nothing except piles of runs. he has no elegant style no love for country. Lara, Sangakara, M. Younus, Dravid, Viv Richards are far far better players then Tendulkar. more stylish more elegant.

Posted by Jakir_Hossain on (March 16, 2012, 19:11 GMT)

This is the character of All Indian. when they win any game, they put players in the sky. Today the blame Sachin. why? it is a great time for sachine even India, that an indian made first 100 centuries. Cricket is a noting but a game. we should congrats Bangladesh for their great victory. And this is the high time to lesson that we should not underestimate someone. India should invite Bangladesh to play in india. otherwise, we will shut down all doors to come in Bangladesh in future.

There are really eally stupid and idiotic comments here about SRT just waiting for any excuse to bash him. In this match if he would have gone out early then people will say oh he cant even score 100 again BD...then when he score idiots will say its aginst minnows.

Deep inside you all know that he is good and there are lots and lots match when he score India won.

Posted by MAK_makes_possible on (March 16, 2012, 19:06 GMT)

First of all congrats To the master for scoring 100th ton.Yes I do agree that he bited his time in the middle,he did that not for his milestone.He is out of form in ODIs and the pitch is slow and the ball not coming onto the bat, and in the process he took sometime,whats wrong in that, any player out of touch takes a bit more time.That is normal.

The point here is 289 defendable against bangladesh, certainly yes,But our bowlers did not bowl well enough to contain them.India is missing an economical bowler like munaf Patel who keeps his nerve in the death overs.Bring Umesh, Srisanth, & varun back.Also Rahul Sharma should be given a chance even if it costs Ashwin one or two matches..

Posted by Usman_Jilani on (March 16, 2012, 19:05 GMT)

@ravichakra and Rajeev Kumar - lets see if you can understand cricket. Last match against SL - both set batsmen were out in the same over and the run rate was 5.25 and in this match when Sachin got out, it was 5.53 and at 46.5, India was 262 and in this, it was 259. But no one blamed Gauti or Virat and rightfully so. India went on to make 304 and in this, it made 289. So whose fault is this? Did you even see the match - in the last match, Indian bowlers could defend against much better batting unit called SL but in this match, we faultered, how can you then blame Sachin? Do you even rem'ber what happened in the match against SA in WC'11 - India was 269 and ended up folding 296 or so and people tried to put the blame on Sachin even when all other 8 batsman except Gauti failed miserably. That is putting things in perspective and context my friend. I definitely agree that blaming other great is not ON but if you go through the comments, it is always started by Sachin haters who start it!

Hearty Congrats to Sachin.. The newer generation of people may not understand Sachin... Even his today's innings may not look good in this 20 20 era.. But actually it was a great innings.. he held the Indian innings together.. 2 crucial partnerships.. made a foundation for the pitch hitters to blast.. a typical ODI innings.. So do I say that Sachin's era is over?? no.. every year he shows how he has adapted himself to the current for over 20 years.. We have seen some glorious innings from him in recent past.. He doesnt have to prove anything for anyone.. I am pretty much sure all Sachin bashers are newbies to cricket.. ( I expect a neat article for those bashers from cricinfo...)

Posted by avmd on (March 16, 2012, 18:53 GMT)

Posted by GRAMMY_SACHIN on (March 16, 2012, 18:50 GMT)

Which means the pitch was really slow in the afternoon, exactly the reason why SL collapsed that day against PAK. You need to read the game properly to understand how the wicket behaved. Had it not been for SRT & Virat we would have struggled to post 250 to 260, which is still a PAR score against BD. But the conditions improved but more than that our bowlers wilted under pressure of an upset. Look at the lolli pops offered by Dinda, Ashwin (that six to Sakib), Irfan & Praveen. The only reason for IND loss today was due to our bowlers and not because of our batsmen (all included). Anyhow SRT will keep paying the prices for all the losses. People will always cricise SRT (especially we Indians most of the time) when he performs or fails or being mediocore. That's the price he has been paying for 22+ years. WHen we are upset in our life, we tend to be angry with GOD ALMIGHTY. Same with Indian Cricket Fans with SRT. In hindsight this is actually the way we show our LOVE to SRT

Posted by Musafir366 on (March 16, 2012, 18:50 GMT)

hahahahaha. Sachin you should play for another 100 years might be one day you will achive 1000 centuries. thanks god Sachin get his century as its the sign that India will lose that match :)

actually only 12 (odi) matches india have lost after sachin scored 100, 12 out of 51 its not that bad really , about 20% of his centuries have end up losing ,

Posted by M3NT4L on (March 16, 2012, 18:48 GMT)

A great achievement of a great player. It doesnt matter who won the match, for me, it was all over when he achieved this milestone. Win or Lose is the part of the game even an upset like this, and we should not mix up all with the result. He has given a charm to cricket world. Even his rivals ( including me ) praise him for his legendary efforts. He deserves a great respect from each and every cricket fan. Best wishes for Sachin from a pakistani.

Posted by GRAMMY_SACHIN on (March 16, 2012, 18:43 GMT)

Thanks Kool_Indian to bring perspective to the entire debate that Sachin's century resulted in loss to Team India. 33 of his Tons came in a winning cause which everybody forgets. Because he has played un-believable number of matches, people talk about 16 of his centuries gone in losses. @ravichakra bringing on the useless case of RD's fastes 50 example. Just talk pure cricketing sense. SRT's Strike Rate is 86+ for 18000+ runs and i do not want to compare that with RD or SG just to make Sachin is a better ODI player. SRT pays the price for being SRT. Whatever he does becomes a masala for his critic. If he had not scored today (say less than 50), the nay sayers will say he can't score even against BD, he should retire. If he scores at 72 Strike Rate, they will say he is the reason for the loss. The way IND bowlers performed, even 310 would have been a safe score. Look at the way the pitch behaved. Virat, Gauti, MSD along with SRT struggled to time the ball. Only Raina could do better.

Posted by Johnny_129 on (March 16, 2012, 18:40 GMT)

India scored nearly 300 runs yet lost the match - HOW MANY MORE RUNS DO INDIAN BOWLERS NEED TO BEAT BANGLADESH....400 perhaps!! Great, great achievement by SRT. It is sad to see some opportunist cowards taking their chance to blame SRT for the loss when his strike rate (even if slower than most of his centuries) was perfectly acceptable - his strike rate was pretty much similar to Kohli's. Indians have to accept that their TEAM IS WEAK as a whole - don't blame SRT for that!!! Congrats to SRT for 100th100...thumbs down to Team India!

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 18:39 GMT)

All other cricketing countries asked Bangaladesh why they allowed Sachin to score his 100th 100. For this Bangaladesh replied that all of them allowed Sachin to score 99 centuries so far but they saw him to score only one century and they(Bangaladesh) are proud of his feet in their soil.

Posted by mazii on (March 16, 2012, 18:39 GMT)

It is heartening to see Sachin's 100 hundreth: finally he got it against Bangladesh. I obfuscated seeing India fans uproar after this unimaginable and untimely defeat against Bangladesh. A few posted regarding the futility of Tendulkars hundered, in fact this isn't true. He scored 49 ODI centuries with a 70 percent win record. Those who are suggesting that whenever Tendulkar scored a century, India loses. This inane argument doesn't contain even a modicum of veracity. I decided myself to do a little research just to see the validity of this argument and to my senses this emotional and nebulous argument is frivolous. Being a Pakistani, I'm a bit envious that the great Tendulkar has eventually achieved his most probably final mile stone. I'm deeply impressed the way Bangladeshis approached their game and Pakistani batsmen need to learn from their batsmen. This Bangladesh's win overshadowed Tendulkar's ton; I'm feeling very much pity for this travesty. Anyways, Congrats to Bangladesh.

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 16, 2012, 18:37 GMT)

to all critics. Why blame tendulkar when the bowling was so terrible? In fact out of tendulkars 100 100s 22 have led to losses. 54 have led to victories and 19 draws and 1 tie. That is still a win % of 54 percent and a loss percent off 22%. Out of Lara's 53 centuries 17 have led to losses and 23 have been in victories. Thats a win percent of about 43% and a loss % of 34%. Yet Lara is the match winner I suppose. 290 was an awesome total. Almost any other bowling attack would have defended it. I mean really full toss after full toss. Please hit me deliveries.

All those of you with 99 international centuries: your snide remarks on scoring a 100 against Bangladesh and being under the pump for a year are well-noted. The rest of you with 98 international centuries or less: you have no idea of the pressure SRT must have been under. He was not batting against Eng or Aus, rather against history itself. So stop criticizing his go-slow. It was a low profile game anyway and the team will be better off now that its best batsman can play freely.

Absolutely selfish 100.... Everyone praises him for his 100th hundred but in the process he made sure India lost. I am big fan of SRT but I am so frustrated that we lost bcoz of him. Hope he apologizes

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 18:32 GMT)

Praying for Sachin's 101st century on Sunday.... and Pakistan's win ofcourse...The only reason Pakistan lost the world cup semi final was because the little master couldnt get to his century and India won...

Posted by sebatti on (March 16, 2012, 18:30 GMT)

@ cruel bangladesi fans, even if u add up the number of centuries scored by all your batsmen(present and past) it will be less than wat Sachin has done alone. Todays game is a gift for u ppl from sachin. Go and celebrate this great victory. Also remember one thing in Indis we dont celebrate wen India beat Bangladesh. I hope this clarrifies everything.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 18:28 GMT)

Many many congratulation 2 great SACHIN ................he is one & only .........I think he is the greatest cricketer & personality........also such a god...at least in cricket........i just requist him please dont leave play cricket befor 2015 world cup.......we want 2 see your bating till u can bating esely in both virsion of cricket......o d i &test.

Posted by sebatti on (March 16, 2012, 18:27 GMT)

Very well... now ppl are getting mixed emotions?... pity on you all... this is our habit to forget everything good done by someone wen they go wrong once. This is surely the worst century ever hit by the great Sachin. The century came from 138 balls was not considered as a bad one before 3 years. All these years sachin carried expectations of a billion ppl and an entire country, now wen he required some time for a mile stone which will be probably a one and only instance in this great game, we are not ready. Its us who are selfish not Sachin. Why cant we tolerate this one loss for many hundreds of victories given by sachin?. remember the sharjah cup, titan cup, 2003 world cup quarter final and many many many more. Now plz let that legend to enjoy his mile stone. Every time when he scored runs and centuries, those runs were added in india's total too.

Congrats Sachin, u r the master of cricket, many congrats from Pakistani fan. But i got the same point which every1 is saying here, today India lost match just because of your personal landmark, India should have score 320 atleast, but all the team plays for ur record, wat a shame, By the ways INDIA LOST 24 TIMES, WHILE TENDULKAR MAKES HUNDRED

Posted by Night-Watchman on (March 16, 2012, 18:15 GMT)

When I heard that Sachin got his ton, right then I told my mates that Bangladesh will win the game....not that Bangladesh is a weaker opponent but India's bowling has also been shit throughout this season and moreover a ton from the GR8 Sachin and India win...mm hmm NO!

Posted by Rahu007uk on (March 16, 2012, 18:09 GMT)

Sachin.... Please spare India with the misery.... Kindly retire now. You made your century now against Bangladesh so please get out now and make way for youngsters... Take some inspiration from legands like Rahul Dravid, Clive Lloyd, Ricky Ponting. Enough is enough. We had enough of you.....

"Whenever Tendulkar scores a hundred India loses", Well I thought it is the perception outside India but now I see so many Indians also making similar comments. Well I really feel sorry for Sachin...... He has been a great player in fact a great 100 scorer...... But still not many victories to show with his centuries..... But I don`t know why people don`t admit the fact that its their bowling that has lost those matches for them and not Sachin...... I mean if he scores a 100 and India post a total like 290 on the board and still their so called bowlers cannot defend it, then what is Sachin`s fault......... But still I believe today he was a bit too concerned for the 100 than India`s final total.....

Posted by Night-Watchman on (March 16, 2012, 18:06 GMT)

A sloooooooooooooooooooooooooow century that ensured that India would not get past the 300 mark. It was more important than the team cementing a place in the finals. Shows the culture of personality that has always been a bugbear for India. I would not be surprised if India ends up returning home after the next match.

Greg Chappel making sense anyone?

Posted by Bowlersbackdrive on (March 16, 2012, 18:05 GMT)

If u can't defend 290, it is questioning bowlers ability not Sachin's.

Posted by Pravinaa on (March 16, 2012, 18:05 GMT)

Let us accept the fact Indian bowling is amongst the weakest attacks in the world. It has been the same story for so many years, Indian losses are caused by bowlers 90 percent of the times 289 was a good enough target to be defended agianst the Bangladeshis but for the Indian bowlers a.k.a lossers

Posted by ProdigyA on (March 16, 2012, 18:05 GMT)

All you people crying on Sachin's century and India failing, wait n see, he will score another century and win against pak, if not, i think he should retire after Asia cup.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 18:05 GMT)

Yes it's a great achievement however, firstly it is totally meaningless statistic as you can't really combine figures from different forms of the game, secondly, cricket is a team game and one has to say, which team actually won?

Posted by RabiulHassan on (March 16, 2012, 17:59 GMT)

please dont mind sachin now it is a national issue,your time is over, Its not matter of achieve a lot of records and must have to take resign 4m indian team coz of nationality, as the focus remained on your acchievement for most of the match whenever u got a century then most time india lost that game.

Posted by nasersid on (March 16, 2012, 17:59 GMT)

Hats off to a selfish inning costing India the game. If anyone disagrees just watch the Indian innings from 38 to 44 overs you will see how selfish he batted for a personal mlestone. What a shame!

Posted by Sunil_Canada on (March 16, 2012, 17:59 GMT)

SRT's effort usually does not help India except in olden days in Sharjah & all. I understand when he makes runs they go to India's total but there are less occassion we remember when his heroics helped India win although he made so many runs that there should have been more occassions. Let him make one more ODI 100 so he will have 50 each in tests & ODI. The chances that his record will be broken is less becasuse there are less tests & ODI's as we now also have T20s. Let him gracefully retire after that as SRT probably does not want people to talk ill about him at this age & stage of his career. He may make many more runs if he continues but SRT please try to understand people have seen enough of you, please don't deprive youngsters of their share. Thanks SRT for whatever you have done for India and most importantly for YOURSELF.

Posted by Sports4Youth on (March 16, 2012, 17:59 GMT)

So finally my worst fears have come true. Tendulkar gets century and india looses. In his 98th match drawn with england. In his 99th we lost to south africa, now on his 100th india lost to BANGLADESH. Even Bangladesh will win if SRT scores a century.

Posted by sachin_tendulkar_200 on (March 16, 2012, 17:58 GMT)

Yes i can see now how sachin's century might have been responsible for India's pathetic bowling, or maybe Bangladesh's batting on an easy 300+ pitch AT home?

Posted by Precioustar84 on (March 16, 2012, 17:58 GMT)

Sorry it went in vain but thank goodness this century hype is finally over!! Now Team India can focus on playing cricket for a change and no one can use it as an excuse to a loss. Now fans/media will leave Sachin alone and hopefully before retiring Sachin plays sensible cricket that he once used to when he first started his career for the sake of the team.

Posted by soumyas on (March 16, 2012, 17:47 GMT)

India lost today's match because of pathetic bowling and fielding. Not because of Sachin's Century !!! They bowled too many Full tosses,Half Volleys and pitched it on the legside. 289 is a defendable score on any flat track against Bangladesh.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 17:46 GMT)

Those guyz commenting about sachin's strike rate should know that someone else in his team is labelled as great if he plays slowly.....And sachin has scored such slow ton only the 2nd time?? Double standards?? Sachin will reply to each n every one of you...

Posted by Dravid_Pujara_Gravitas_Atheist on (March 16, 2012, 17:45 GMT)

I was dreading this result. Sachin's slow century cost us this match. Sachin likewise scored gems in winning cause. I'm not the one to foolishly say that India loses when Sachin scores a century. But, I'm against his game when it is out of sync with the team's interests. This is one such century and will be remembered for that. His 50th century in tests will also be remembered for the way he threw Unadkat in front of Steyn and Co resulting in innings defeat for us and Sachin remaining notout. I saw that match praying for the sake of Sachin's 100 and his batting left a poor taste in my mouth that will never go away. A big lesson learnt about him. Sachin of late is not the same player he once was. Hopefully, he will start playing proper cricket for the team before he retires, now that he scored that 100th 100.

These comments are sign of how much the world cruel is. A man served 20 years for a country should not be treated as. Once upon we used to tell , do sachin out quickly and india will loose. But now according to some fanatic fans he is a burden to india team! What a shame .

every person has its time to play for country but that time ends one day so i think time for tendulkar has finished now though he is still a gud one for india but he has already played alot ...... i will say that today india lost only due to tendulkars century and poor bowling

Posted by Micky.Panda on (March 16, 2012, 17:34 GMT)

I have to agree with Al bundy1 somewhat. Its arrogant to think you can take so long to get to 100 after reaching 80. Its like saying I don't rate this opposition or I don't care about the win. Raina had no problem making runs at a reasonable pace. Hit it or get out. Its a very unfortunate way to reach your milestone. Jaques Kallis is another player who is great for tests but not suited to Twenty20 format, because most times when he makes a big score, the team loses. Players need to set themselves minimum acceptable run rates for these formats. Clearly the pitch wasn't difficult for everyone. Would be interesting to see if Haydn or Gilchrist ever made a one-day century that slowly Tendulkar would have been most wise to have long forgotten about his 100 hundreds and just played his best for the team.

In any arena such a feat is enormous and MUST rightly be acknowledged. A pity some of the gloss has come of the century of centuries shine: doing it against the lowly Bangladesh after so many failed attempts against the stronger teams, and India's inability to win the match. Sometime statistics no matter how momentous can make fools of us all!!! No wonder the saying "there are lies, there are damned lies and then there are statistics".

Yes. Truly Legendary batsman who always think of country first before making 100s. Some people try to say that sachin makes runs for his own personal record but I want to tell them does it mean that sachin's run is not added to team's total? yes it is! then why people are talking so shamelessly? Whatever runs scored by him, each run has played a big roll in adding total of team. Not his record only. Some also says that when sachin scores, 100 India loses, yes some time it is true but it is not sachin who force players to loose the game. it is whole team when not doing well, they loses, it is not fault of sachin...its fault of those who just know how to talk negatives to Sachin.

I WAS JUST LOOKING AT the table with most hundreds scored by a player and I still can't figure out, how can some one put tests and ODIs together and say that Sachin has scored 100 centuries in 651 matches. It doesn't feel right. For me he needs one more 100 in ODIs to make it 50 or above in both formates. Any how, a great batsman who luckily played the game in dead wicket era.

Congratulations to sachin on his ton of tons.however significant/important this achievement is with respect o history of the game and sachins own contribution,the fact remains that this ton cost india the match! run a ball score from sachin would have given india 33 more runs and that would have been enough for an indian victory.of course we would not say all this if india had won,right.

ANOTHER CENTURY ,,,,,,,,, ANOTHER LOSS FOR INDIA

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:50 GMT)

first of all congrats to Sachin ! few questions to be answered by India. is it a worth century. did he played for him (his century) or India. how selfish him to eaten so much of balls to reach the milestone. is it worth putting an extra pressure on the other players to manage the run rate and sacrifice their wicket at the end. how many times Sachin performed and India gone on to loss ??????????????

Posted by KingOwl on (March 16, 2012, 16:49 GMT)

Got his century and lost the match for the country by scoring too slowly. All too common for comfort.

Posted by bbpp on (March 16, 2012, 16:48 GMT)

Tendulkar is one of the greatest batsmen of all times but Stats alone do not make you great. Look at the stats of Kallis, Border, Javed etc vs one IVA Richards and who is the legend? A century against Bangladesh at a SR of 77 versus the SR of the other batters in the same innings shows what the focus of Sachin was.....and India lost to BANGLADESH! Walsh has the most wickets by far for WI bowlers but he is not in their top 5 bowlers.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:48 GMT)

Great batting lineup and even more great and awesome bowling lineup of India. Everyone forgot Sachin's contribution and telling him to retire,see what he is still making the biggest contribution for the team, I think the whole bowling lineup should retire from cricket after seeing today's performance. Specially pathan and who the hell is dinda??Man What A Bowler!!!!????!!!!This lineup couldn't even defend 290!!!!!!

Posted by lananad on (March 16, 2012, 16:47 GMT)

Simple formular Tendulkar scores India lose. Took 147 balls to score. India should have got more than 300 if Tendulkar was more aggresive. Congrats to him for reaching a personal milestone. End of the day it's a team game Personal records does not matter at all.

Posted by themightyfenoughtys on (March 16, 2012, 16:46 GMT)

Tendulkar century and India lose. Great. Now can you retire with dignity.

Tendulkar scores a century and India loses.

This seems to be the pattern in Tendulkar's career.

The so called myth " When Sachin scores a 100 India lose" proven again today. i think he batted selfishly. he's a great batsman but not a match winner (percentage wise i mean, because he has won matches)

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:44 GMT)

Finally India lost the match , it is to blame the bowlers . but Ashwin bowled some ball to get rid of Shakib. why cant we think like this ....India Should have scored atleast 25 more runs considering the platform they had without worrying about milestones . No century from Bangla players yet they won. Moral of the story .....CRICKET is a team game.there are 11 players.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:43 GMT)

be it against any team, be it on a any kind of competition, the achievement is great and is probably ever breakable. Congrats sachin from Sri Lanka.

but one word, there had been always a saying among the Indian fans, " whenever Gavaskar and Sachin made centuries India lose!! coz they simply play for their own records"

feel like i have no answer to counter my indian comrades.

i feel that india however are short of 15-20 runs!!

Posted by Sports4Youth on (March 16, 2012, 16:42 GMT)

So finally my worst fears have come true. Tendulkar gets century and india looses. In his 98th match drawn with england. In his 99th we lost to south africa, now on his 100th india lost to BANGLADESH. Even Bangladesh will win if SRT scores a century.

Posted by ravichakra on (March 16, 2012, 16:41 GMT)

@Vaibhav10291 At least Dravid did not bat out a maiden in the 33rd over that too against Bangladesh. By the way he has the 2nd fastest fifty in ODIs by an Indian (50 off 22 balls) better than even Sachin. If you recollect his last ODI, he got out on 69 in the 41st over trying to accelerate. Had Sachin been in that situation he would have crawled all the way to yet another personal milestone. Coming to Tests in Australia, why single out Dravid when the so called great SRT struggled in England and Australia. If anyone had to retire it should have been SRT first. All he can do is accumulate personal milestones. I can give umpteen isntances in ODI where Dravid's strike rate is higher than Sachin.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:40 GMT)

Congrats to the master!!! though feel sorry that he scored it in a loosing cause..he looked upset at the presentation, From now everytime people would recollect Sachin's 100 100th, they would remember Bangadesh's win historic win over India..........

Posted by asif.muhammad on (March 16, 2012, 16:39 GMT)

and india lost this one.. can someone provide some statistics on the results where sachin scored 80+. I believe, in most of those matches, india lost the game.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:39 GMT)

Hey I am from Bangladesh .. Congratz to Sachin .. but when he hit the century, I knew we would have a good chance .. Cause he makes centuries where India losses .. We are very happy to beat our neighbor who underestimates us in every aspect .. Guess what, we'll do it again .... Mu ha ha ha ha

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:39 GMT)

Thanks Sachin, India might have won many matches because of you, but you are the reason that we lost today

Posted by samincolumbia on (March 16, 2012, 16:39 GMT)

Yet another useless milestone..India lost the match...that's all that matters.

hopefully he will retire now from ODI and concentrate on tests. If he does not, then Srikkanth should remove him even if he will incur the wrath of his fans.

How could you guys still don't realize that the so called Legend Mr. Sachin is the root cause for this India's failure against Bangladesh? For that one hundred today our Indian team has to cheaply lose against Bangladesh. But they deserve this will as well!! Our Indian cricket followers always put blame on other players to shadow the IMAGE OF SACHIN. For insistence today's match, the blame would be on captaincy or poor Irfan Pathan. Just sit back and think is the NATIONAL TEAM IS IMPORTANT OR INDIVIDUAL LANDMARK IS IMPORTANT. If still believe individual land mark is important then _____.

Posted by johancryuff on (March 16, 2012, 16:38 GMT)

i agree with Hammond. if any one deserves to be the greatest cricketer of india it has to be KAPIL DEV, man did every thing take wickets, score runs, take catches & lead team. Most important when team needed someone to perform on biggest stage he was there, most young followers have myopic knowledge. Also kaps don't have gavaskar, shastri to promote on tv like sachin. Unlike sachin who has mostly failed on the biggest stage, WC final matches of 2003 & 2011 are evidence. While Dravid who undoubtely less talented would always come good when required by the team. No wonder a great individual achievement, which does not result in teams victory. Most selfish player had he been playing for australia would have been asked to leave a long time ago.

That is a very big achievement .............. congratulation to Sachin Can some one tell me in these 100 matches how many India lost????????????????

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:38 GMT)

HEARTY Congrats Sachin. Let the TRUE cricket lovers of whole world celebrate the first and last achievement of scoring 100 international tons. Now Mr. SACHIN will play without any stress and burden and enjoy the game he loved most. (People critisizing Mr. Sachin should look out the past - when he lost his loving father during 1999 world cup, joined the indian team immediately and played the game he loved most for our country)

Useless century, if it has no worth for ur team, India lost the match... century is gone,,,,,well said by someone he is not a match winning Batsman...

so sachin loss the match for india, as he always do,

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:37 GMT)

@Vaibhav10291 : What is the point of making 100th century, that too in loosing cause. Being a sachin fan dosn't entitle you to defame the most devoted player of India. Learn to judge innings according to the context,condition. Making tons of run wont help india if you cant produce that inning against good oppositions and under critical condition. I dont compare Sachin with Dravid, But I must admit that I am a fan of dravid because of his huge team spirit and ability to overcome his limitation. Playing cricket is different then playing for country. If you are not contributing good enough you must make the way for others. No dis-regard for sachin, But he is certainly a comparable cricketer.

Posted by sunnysaeed on (March 16, 2012, 16:37 GMT)

well done sachin , but i was afraid before the bangla inning start dat sachin made 100 then this match is in dangerous ... and here u go , India loss the match again after sachin made century.

Posted by MrGarreth on (March 16, 2012, 16:36 GMT)

Congrats. But it just goes to show that he is all about personal stats. Shouldve retired straight after the world cup. There was nothing else for him to do team wise so it could have only been either money or individual records. Im guessing individual. In the IPL in the last ball of the first innings he needed 1 run to get to a 100 but the team thing to do would have been to look for the boundary. What did he do? Looked for the 1, got it, and was content. All he really cared about. Nonetheless, no denying that he was a very good batsman but he should bow out with some grace and do what is best for the future of Indian cricket: give the young guys a shot. Dravid did it, now its your turn Sach.

Posted by HimelC on (March 16, 2012, 16:36 GMT)

Heartiest congratulations to the Little Master! What Sir Tendulkar has achieved is incredible that may never be emulated. But I feel his persona is even greater than his achievements! He is a gentleman par excellence. He achieved so much yet he talked so little! But to be honest again, my dear Indian fans, I must say his last remarkable feat has come at a great cost and that is what shocks me! Critics can now say that he played for personal goals rather than his country! Enough has been said about his poor performance against England, West Indies, Australia, Sri Lanka (CB series, Asia Cup), so I will not repeat that. Look at today's game. He scored at such a slow pace that cost India the match and may be the Cup even! Look at the way Sir Bradman retired! His critics can now label him selfish, that what pains me! Retiring is a tough decision but is indeed a fact of life! This proves that our idols are more human than godly! SirTendulkar might have done better retiring than achieve this!

Posted by navi1 on (March 16, 2012, 16:35 GMT)

Koodos to Bangla team; well played and well deserved... They should have win the Pak game as well because in the end they played better Cricket but went unlucky.. Koodos to Sachin for making a record....

Guys I guess Shoaib Akhtar was right in his book saying that Sachin and Dravid always play for themselves instead for country; today's example is perfect that his century gone in the drain; what is the use of century when you don't win for country..but again Sachin good job and time to retire buddy with respect... cheers

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:35 GMT)

And now Sachin's critics will make fun of him cause India lost to BD. I had just written few hours ago BD is a good side. A bit unlucky of course. It's Dhoni's captaincy and his unpardonable favor to his favorite players that we are losing. What Jadeja still doing no one bothers to ask....289 was a very good score to defend but as Sanjay wrote in his article forget replacing Dravid we need three quality bowlers and right now we have perhaps worst bowling department ever in the history of cricket. Anyway good news is at least Sachin can relieve himself and play more freely. Wish it would have happened before in English tour. Flat tracks or not he has a record by his side and that speaks all...He would have been greater if India had Aussies kinda bowling attack or even English or SA....he played like one man army upto 15 years of his career. I appreciate it others might not...doesn't matter...

Thank you Sachin - We Love you no matter what... Congratulations to The GOD! And to all true fans of Sachin and India and Cricket - Congrats for being there and supporting the game, Team and The GOD!! And to all those cry babies - no matter how much you cry, who ever your idol is - they won't even be close to our Idol, so keep on crying which will only turn into blessings - SACHINNNNNN SACHINNNNNN!!! PS: How can a true cricket follower even blame Sachin for the loss today? If Sachin didn't stay there, why don't you think India 'may' have scored like SL against pak? And if you saw - Sachin and Raina got out in the same over just like Gauti and Virat but no one blamed them coz Raina and Dhoni picked up the scoring which was not done in this match by Rohit and Jaddu except for one good last over. Also, the record changes from 33 100's have resulted in wins - 33 which is still higher than 30 scored by ponting. You can't blame the little master for poor bowling by three pacers-come on guys!

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:34 GMT)

Gratz to Sachin :) He did take a lot of balls to get to his 100,but on the bright side...he will cut loose now and we will get to see a greater portion of 'younger' Sachin Tendulkar, before he retires. ^_^

Very Unfortunate that a personal milestone is being cherished, which should be but a humiliating defeat to India. It gives a clear picture of what Indian cricket is all about. Personal record put against a nation's win. Clearly those nervous 90's wasted balls without scoring and 149 ball 115 innings is to be blamed for todays loss. Oh yeah ojne more thing a pathetic bowling strength India posses. Can't even defend against Banlgadesh. Overall my emotions are mixed and I dont feel this milestone is any more special than many others we have seen.

A great player but another selfish century which cost the match for India. As usual when the great man scores a century India looses it. Done wonders to the game but it's time to let the youngster move on with the ODI games and for him to concentrate only on the Test matches. What more to achieve in the ODI, he has won the world cup after 22 years.

Posted by IndiaLead on (March 16, 2012, 16:24 GMT)

Anuk Heshan De Zoysa: for your information he has scored a double century against South Africa and he has nothing to prove.....could you point anyone who scored a double century other than Sachin and Sewag...for all those Sachin haters just leave him alone, this man has played for our country for the past two decades and won many matches for our country single handedly and yet he is very humble and down to earth person who is not involved in any controversy and a perfect gentleman that is why we call him GOD......

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 16:23 GMT)

With all due respect to Sachin Tendulkar, I am afraid, his century came for a big price for team india. The way india started, they could easily top 300 runs. It was Sachins century that slowed the indias run rate which was excellent for Bangladesh. Bangladesh, ofcourse played brilliantly and Indias bowling had no bite as usual. India might lose to Pakistan next game and that will change the whole equation. Go Bangladesh.

Posted by johancryuff on (March 16, 2012, 16:23 GMT)

well it has happened again, sachin scores a century after a year and india losses match. 114 runs in 147 balls. No surprises there.

Posted by Rahi393 on (March 16, 2012, 16:19 GMT)

Again Sachin prove that he plays or love to play cricket as hobby but surely not for nation and country. I apologize but i am not bias against him,The ICC record is prove of that.

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 16, 2012, 16:18 GMT)

Very sad indeed. India were terrible and I'm afraid we were far from being bullies today. We are handing Sri Lanka a chance to make the final. If we lose to Pakistan things become very interesting. A win for Bangladesh will send them through while a win for Sri Lanka with a bonus point will send them through. I guess Tendulkar's curse continues. Wow a batsman of his class deserves a better bowling line up. I mean consecutive full tosses in the last 3 overs.

Posted by Mitcher on (March 16, 2012, 16:16 GMT)

Once Again.. Sachin Century in Unlucky for team India. Today it seems he played for his 100th ton. 100 in 135 balls is not his natural game. If he played well, india would have crossed 300 and would have win this match... So not happy with the way he batted today to score his century... Its better for him to retire now with 100 tons. He should not look for the milestoen of 20000 runs.

Posted by nair_ottappalam on (March 16, 2012, 16:11 GMT)

It is always taken for granted that whenever Sachin completes a ton, it will culminate in India's defeat. He is a thorough individual player. Maybe bulk of the readers here dont support me. But it's the fact Just take the stats, he has now scored 49 ODI tons. How many matches India won out of these? India couldn't even defend 289 against a team like Bangladesh!!!

Congrats Mr Tendulkar, Hats off to you for your service. But don't you think this is a good time to quit. After all it is a team game and you cannot be the flag bearer forever. Let the youth get some experience too.

this is the thing which will happen as an end result when selfishness for a personal glory overtakes the team cause. whatever great talent one has its a waste when thier attitude is not as great as the talent.

From Pakistan - Heartiest and Sincere Congratulations to worlds best Batsma n, Sachin we always loved watching you play, many congratulations, and many thanks for immense entertainment that you provide. I don't think this record will be ever broken in centuries to come. Wish you all the best!

Everytime sachine makes century INDIA lose the game, still i dont know why people gives him the door of their GOD, why why why......?????

Sachin got his century and India (world champions) lost the match to Bangladesh...good to have both these records...Indian fans choose which one you would like to have....for me team performance is important than individual.

Congratulations to Sachin Tendulkar. But Unfortunately, History repeats again, India Lose again when Sachin Made Century.

Bangladesh - one of the weaker teams ?? Nah.. Sachin the God - has scored his 100th ton against one of the strongest upcoming teams who has capable players to beat India.

Posted by ashakoor52 on (March 16, 2012, 16:06 GMT)

Here come the last humiliation on Team India inspite of the century of their show boy. Will you rejoice or mourn now? Tendular and Gavaskar are two players whose selfish centuries never resulted in victory of their team. It has been proved today once again.

Posted by thinktank1 on (March 16, 2012, 16:05 GMT)

Sachin at this age finds it difficult to score against face bowlers like Steyn, Philander, Morkel, Pattinson etc. There is no point in playing after achieving everything in Cricket. Let Rohit or Manoj make the entry.

Posted by umairish on (March 16, 2012, 16:04 GMT)

Lol Bangladash beat India " THE WORLD CHAMPION" with comfortable 5 wicket win and make india go down the drain. wow.. ANOTHER CENTUrY of Tendulkar finally another Big lose to india. what a bad luck history of centuries... India may now tell everyone that how really they won the WC. :P

Posted by Silverbails on (March 16, 2012, 16:04 GMT)

OMG - He's done it, at LONG LAST!! Congrats to the Little Master, SRT!!! Now, that this 'millstone' has FINALLY been reached, can we at least get on with actually WINNING cricket matches for India, rather than focussing all of our energies on rather superfluous records!!! Surely, India should be looking to win Test Matches, particularly abroad, rather than merely celebrating landmarks by one individual player (no matter how good!!). Although SRT's been good at batting over a long period of time, he really doesn't compare anywhere near to that other pantheon of Indian Test players who's retired recently - i.e. the legendary Rahul Dravid, who's won or saved India on many, many more occasions, particularly in Tests, than I care to remember and certainly FAR MORE than the Little Master!!! O.K., so we've reached this point in SRT's career...is it NOW time to move on, or what?!?!?

Yet another selfish tendulkar century & yet another loss to IND.Individual goals are weighed higher than team goals, way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.Sachin go for 200 centuries and still BCCI or selectors sit & watch.

It might be his 100th hundred, but one thing for sure has not changed even after 22 years; the fact that when he gets a century India looses. That too to Bangladesh......BAAHAHAHAHAHAA

When Sachin scores a century, chances of Indian's win diminishes. Well done Tigers.

Posted by cricpolitics on (March 16, 2012, 16:01 GMT)

A century from Tendulkar means nothing for the Indian team, as more often is the case. India mostly loses when that happens and it is again proved today when they lost against Bangladesh, an even bigger than Tendulkar's meaningless century. I am however glad that this madness and non-sense is finally over.

Posted by Dravid_Pujara_Gravitas_Atheist on (March 16, 2012, 16:01 GMT)

I was dreading this result. Sachin's slow century cost us this match. Sachin likewise scored gems in winning cause. I'm not the one to foolishly say that India loses when Sachin scores a century. But, I'm against his game when it is out of sync with the team's interests. This is one such century and will be remembered for that. His 50th century in tests will also be remembered for the way he threw Unadkat in front of Steyn and Co resulting in innings defeat for us and Sachin remaining notout. I saw that match praying for the sake of Sachin's 100 and his batting left a poor taste in my mouth that will never go away. A big lesson learnt about him. Sachin of late is not the same player he once was. Hopefully, he will start playing proper cricket for the team before he retires, now that he scored that 100th 100.

TWO Things were responsible for India's Loss againts Bangldesh.

For God's sake you have achieved whatever you wanted , now get out and let India win games

Another selfish century from tendulkar.Scoring century in 138 balls and put india on losing side yet again.

Is there any evidences needed that he's just playing for himself only?????Just like Dilshan's 160(165) and Waner's 100(140),Tendulkar's ton cost the match for india.his last scored 50 was against Pak in WC2011 and ever since that he couldn't score a 50.bt those most of the matches won by india.today he manage a ton and that former saying still alive."Whenever sachin score a ton, india sure to lose"

@Vaibhav10291: The so called God is known One-day Player and The Wall is a Test Legend. Agree the fact that SRT was slow today 114 out of 147 does not need more justification. one more thing abt Dravid getting bowled in Australia, what was your God doing in England and in Australia? Bird Watching??? Lets not throw stones and agree the facts.

I am happy for SRT and his fans but this match will also be remembered for India losing to Bangladesh. India cannot be sure of defending any score less than 300 on sub-continent pitches, with that pathetic bowling attack. SRT should know that by now. Scoring a century at a runrate of 77 is not acceptable anymore!

Posted by BULTY on (March 16, 2012, 15:54 GMT)

For the world Sachin has scored his 100th 100. but the achievement is for himself and not in the team's cause. Yet again he has proved that he is not a match winner, for in the final analysis, Bangladesh have completed an incredible victory over the world champions. If Sachin has a percentage of shame in him, he should hang up his boots and announce his retirement this moment. Where India should have scored 320+ in this game, it was just 289 becauxse of Sachin's slow batting for the selfish aim of completing his 100th 100 and you guys want to celebrate it? NONSENSE.

No offence to his talent mates.. but you cannot run an old horse in a race even though it has got stamina to run miles.. This is what happens.. a deseprate 100 at a strike rate of 70 ensures even bangladesh wins over India.

Posted by soumyas on (March 16, 2012, 15:23 GMT)

Dhoni is talented but he is doing lot of politics in team too. Sometimes he doesn't want to win the match simply because he doesn't like some players performances ( Eg: Tendulakar's 100 ). He has Bunch of players to ensure his will succeeds ( Eg; Jadeja,P.kumar,raina,pathan ). They all work together to make sure his will. Intern their place guaranteed in the team by dhoni even after the bad performances. these bowlers will bowl FULLTOSSES, LOOSE BALLS, DO MISSFIELDS. India looses and dhoni sends a wrong message that we loose whenever SACHIN scores 100. I have noticed this phenomenon many times. I think today also the STORY is SAME.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 15:21 GMT)

I have a doubt Bangladesh is not a minnows they have beaten australia 2005 and south africa so this hundred is also a good one . This team only beaten us in 2007

Posted by tz07 on (March 16, 2012, 15:20 GMT)

Posted by Hammond on (March 16, 2012, 15:19 GMT)

By the way how typical will it be for Sachin's career if he gets this century and his team loses against Bangladesh? Never have I seen a player whose personal success has counted so little to the teams general success.

Posted by Dravid_Pujara_Gravitas_Atheist on (March 16, 2012, 15:17 GMT)

@IndnCrktfan, all in zest mate ;). I agree with the most part of your post. Yes, we are blessed to have witnessed Dravid, Dada, VVS, Viru and Kumble. Sorry, but can't say the same about Sachin, Gavaskar, Shastri and Colonel. Especially since that inning, when Sachin took singles and exposed Unadkat to Steyn and Co once he reached a century. Sachin of late is not the same player he once was. Next, what was he doing in England when the team was riddled with injuries, no proper openers to startwith and Gambhir too gets injured mid-way through the series? Dravid moves up and down the order. VVS, who is not known to be a good front foot player, is thrown in at no.3 in swinging conditions but our man, the elephant in the dressing room sticks to that throne at no.4?? I love India more than a Dravid or a Sachin and obviously the one who puts himself in the firing line for Her, rather than the one that looks away, is the dearest to me - That's RD, The Great Wall, the consummate team-man.

Posted by hnlns on (March 16, 2012, 15:16 GMT)

Thank goodness, he has done it at least against Bangladesh. Not a record to be very proud of though since he struggled so much to achieve this. He ought to have done it against a better stronger bowling attack like South Africa or Australia or Pakistan. Hope this will make him decide on retiring from all ODIs and make way for a younger fresher leg to take his place. He has had his share of limelight for 20+ years now, that's more than enough I think. He has nothing left to prove to anybody now. He should follow Dravid's example sooner than later.

Posted by daniels1974 on (March 16, 2012, 15:08 GMT)

Tendulkar never plays for the team but just for personal records. This is a meaningless record and the guy should have been dropped ages ago to make way for new talent. Would never rate him as great as he is made up to be by the media. There are many other players out there who have done it for the love of their team/country unlike this guy.

@cric4lyf - You are judging Sachin based on his first ODI hundred against Bangladesh? Just remember, its his 100th not first. The previous 99,every one of them is a reality.. not a fantasy.. don't forget that.. every one has to start with 0.

Posted by JG2704 on (March 16, 2012, 15:08 GMT)

Well done Mr Sachin. It's been a while coming from number 99 but now that milestone is finally reached. I'm not going to compare Sir Viv , Punter , Kallis , Javed and whoever else - all great players. Fair play to Sachin and enjoy the moment.

You are truly the greatest player to have ever played this game.

I can only imagine the pressure on you!!

Carrying the hopes and aspirations of a billion people must have been nightmarish.

But you have done it with such poise and dignity.

You are the best!!!!!!!!!!!

@ Al Bundy. Here are his list of centuries against other nations. Australia-20 SriLanka-17 South Africa- 12 England and NZ- 9 Zimbawe- 8 Pakistan and WI-7 Bangladesh-6 Kenya and Nambia-5

Better check some facts before you open your dirty little dillhole. It's not about 100 100 of Sachin. It's the facts that he is the greatest batsman ever after Bradman.

Posted by SHAN16_JERK on (March 16, 2012, 14:48 GMT)

As Nasir Hossain aptly said - Bradman is great! But, SACHIN IS THE GREATEST EVER TO PLAY THIS GAME OF CRICKET. Most of the so called Sachin haters probably never held a bat in their hand so they will never know the tense feeling one has when one walks to bat. To do that better than anybody in the history of the game while facing some of the world's best bowlers both pace and spin, on every kind of pitch - seaming, greentops, dustbowls, and flat track, against every opponent team in both format of the game , in every cricketing country in both formats, and do that consistently for 22 years and counting, and still remain the model of humbleness, humanity, and perfect gentleman free of controversy both on and off the field has to be SUPERMAN effort if not godly effort. This milestone of 100 international centuries will never be broken. The great Einstein once said about Gandhiji that the future generation will not believe that such man walked on earth. Same can be said about Sachin.

Congratulations to Sachin Tendulkar. He has now made centuries against every and all Test playing countries and against every country in ODI's. He has been a major force for India to have acieved Test #1 position and ODI #1 position. I wonder if there will ever be another batsman to achieve this feat. I doubt it.

@thesaneone I totally disagree with your comments. Sunil Gavaskar never had a Dravid or a Sehwag to relieve the pressure. The whole of India considered him a God. Maybe you are too young to remember. Sachin Tendulkar is the most overrated cricketer in the history of the game. Plus his record has already been superseded by a better contemporary batsman (and cricketer) in Kallis. Gavaskar was THE premier Indian batsman, and took on all the Windies and Aussie great fast bowlers and flourished. Sachin is one of the great batsman of his generation, and the best Indian player in the same time period. But that is it. So it speaks for itself that he breaks this great record playing against a side that barely holds onto it's test status on a pitch as flat as a chess board. Tendulkar feels totally at home in such conditions. Tendulkar vs Andy Roberts @ the Antigue recreation ground with no helmet? No comparison with the true Indian little master Gavaskar. And comparisons with Bradman? Laughable.

Posted by StatisticsRocks on (March 16, 2012, 14:37 GMT)

@Dravid_Gravitas: Common now, I didnt expect this from you. To do what SRT has been for 20+ years @international level is remarkable. Can you check the data/statistics before u start whining like others. I can challenge gr8 cricketers like Sir Viv, Punter,Javed Miandad, The Wall and many many others that even if they played the same minnow country (hypothetically offcourse) they still wont be able to score 100 centuries. Just Enjoy the achievement of this gr8 Indian who we are all blessed to witness along with Dravid, Dada, LAX, Viru, all playing at the same time. Only India can boast of that. Proud To Be an Indian and fan of World cricket. Thanks you Sachin for 20+ glorious years and to do it with your feet on the ground. Hats off to you guys.

He 'Was' a great cricketer. Now he typifies most Indian cricketers who selfishly plod on motivated by personal records.

The mumbai tradition continues : ' Greedy' Gavaskar, Selfish Shastri (Ravi Shastri) and now Sachin Tendulkar. Actually I see this as a common trait particularly among mumbai cricketers. The fans are also maniacal and sycophantic which contributes to it.

Reminds me of a college acquaintance: who used to foolishly state that the bombay Ranji team should be selected to represent India national. These are the types who will even today say that 'Agit Agarkar' should be selected in the Indian team.

I am relieved only because our foolish media will probably stop talking about him now. Give me a break..

Posted by gkannuchamy on (March 16, 2012, 14:36 GMT)

//wherever I went, the restaurant, room service, everyone was talking about the 100th hundred.//

Who else? The old and retired cricketers from India and abroad. The cricket fans worldwide were quite content with the master batsman's 99 hundreds but the veterans haven't stopped with just asking him to hang his bat but also bayed for this poor little Indian sportsman's blood. What a nice way to answer those critics. Congrats Sachin!

Completely agree with @Dravid_Gravitas - After getting humiliated by the stronger teams, Sachin grabbed the opportunity with both the hands when he came across probably the weakest international team. Even Manoj Tiwary, Pujara, etc can score centuries against this attack. Why not give them a chance? They will be around for World Cup 2015.

Posted by NavIndian on (March 16, 2012, 14:18 GMT)

It was the media and cricket crazy public of India who created such a hype for Sachin's 100th century. Poor guy, just put yourself in his shoe and you will know how much pressure he was under. People always say that he plays for the record but tell who doesn't play for the record. Which footballer doesn't want to score more and more goals, which athlete doesn't want to break the world records. Tell me if the Great Don Bradman didn't enjoy scoring centuries. Like all the other cricketers he too always wanted his team to win and gave his absolute best all the time in the field. You score sometimes, you don't score sometimes and that part of the game.

No matter what people say Sachin always had a level head, never went into controversy, never had any character issues, always remained the student of the game and admired by the entire cricket community of the world.

Regarding retirement, why will you pull out from the race when you know that you still have something left in the tank.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 14:16 GMT)

it's definitely a bit disappointing to see some of the comments against Sachin in such a degrading language. Even in his leanest phase he is much better than most of Indian players except Kohli. He scored century against BD but so what? BD plays good cricket and there is more craze for cricket there than in SA or NZ. I have grown up watching Sachin and wants him to keep playing for another couple of years. He is fit and plays well so why to get retired? He knows what he is doing and his presence never harmed Indian cricket. It's Dhoni's captaincy and poor form in Tests that did the real harm and also inclusion of some of his players like Jadeja and vinay kumar and parveen kumar and raina and this and that...selectors also are to be blamed...But it's pathetic that most of Sachin's critics can't see it.They are the real disappointment in life and not Sachin...

@hammond the maxim you used applies to cases of negligence and He is anything but negligent. so stop throwing terms just to stump people. the guy mocking Bangladeshis with Warne comment should consider the fact that even Warne had Sachinified nightmares. to the guy who talks about anybody playing 300 Odis and getting 100 100s. get the best 11 players who in your mind are better and the number of their total games shouldn't exceed 500. if they total 100 100s together just let me know

@malin de silva dare not to talk against sachin in that way again.if he was a a shameless person greedy for money and runs if would have endorsed alcoholic products like many of your lankan cricketers did(i think u are a lankan by seeing your name) and made huge amount of money.he has high moral values and therefore he didnt sign them.regarding the greed for runs he doesnt play for runs or records he plays bcs he loves playing cricket for india and making a nation proud.i dont understand why cricinfo does publish comments such as that of malin as they are very offending and hurting the feelings of indians as he called a true legend as greedy and shameless

Thanks a million to Asia Cup. Exceptional presence of mind from Sachin. Hopefully his slow century doesn't cost India the match. Bangladesh isn't a strong team. So hopefully, India will get away with Sachin's slow batting. This century should also be the starting point for Sachin to start playing normally without hurting the team's interests. What next? 22 more first class centuries and another quarter decade? Great going Sachin! Bravo! ;)

Thanks for the support. Cheers...

Posted by thesaneone on (March 16, 2012, 14:08 GMT)

@Hammond - There is another simpler term - " A little knowledge is a dangerous thing".Gavaskar never had to play under the burden of expectations like Sachin has. Look at the detailed stats and you will see Sachin has scored against all, minnows included. I am no Sachin worshiper, more importantly I find it annoying that this 'made up achievement' was needed to validated the man's greatness, which was evident when the 16 year old Sachs took on Imran, Waqar and Akram at a green top in Pakistan..YouTube that while you are googling for Latin phrases.

@Yorkshire pudding - are you serious?!! he scored 20 against one team and that ain't enough for you! also did you just add New Zealand to the minnows list, lol might as well England too- the country which gave birth to cricket and still didn't manage to win a world cup! Also for the guy who praised first class centuries more- first class cricketers don't face 150kmph deliveries on searing fast tracks too. even the Don would have struggled against the likes of Warne, Akram, Donald,Murlitharan and countless others whom The One tore to shreds. for those who want his place given- he has vacated the no.3 spot and there are 10 other slots in the team for young prodigies (lol) like Jadeja and Sharma

Oh my God its finally done! You are great Sachin but plz step down NOW for the sake of Indian cricket. I don't know if anyone can reach to your level but saying that its not fair to keep you in the team so that you can make 200 centuries till the time your grandchild is 60 yr old!

After failing miserably against quality bowling and demanding pitches in England and Australia, he finally scores against Bangladesh on a dead pitch. If Tendulkar has any shred of dignity left, he should retire.

A-CENTURIES & AND THE B-CENTURIES. Sachin will always be counted among the best batsmen in cricket history but one question will always come up and that is about number B-centuries (bookie centuries). Most people say, half of the centuries scored by Sachin are funded by strong indian bookies. Could this last one also be one of them?

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 13:47 GMT)

At last against poor Bangladesh. This shameless man still greedy of money and runs. He was an excellent wonderful and classical player. But every player has a time to leave. Now it is Sachin's time to leave. Just remember how he betrayed India for number of series for a single Hundred. Anyway congrats. He was a great player. But now it's time to leave.

Posted by Nampally on (March 16, 2012, 13:47 GMT)

A great feat of endurance, talent & stamina.Bravo Sachin - you are the Greatest! Being the only batsman to do this, Sachin should be proud of the feat. As he says, a Century is a Century no matter against whom you score.Sachin can be himself again after being put under tremendous pressure by the media hype & Fan pressure every day of his life for the past 6 months. It is like a school boy who feels so relieved after the exams are finally done.Now he can bat without the pressure being on. Tendulkar was out at least 35 times in his 90's in his career. If he was after records he would have taken his time in his 90's to complete his 100. He also got his 100 with sixers during one phase of his life to show that he is not after records of centuries.I remember on few occasion he lost his wkt. due to trying to complete it with a Six!.What a batsman- he will have his record no matter what others say. Bradman failed to achieve his lifetime average of 100 by 0.4. But Sachin achieved another!

There is a latin legal term that applies here.. "Res Ipsa Loquitur"- it speaks for itself. Sachin had to wait to play a minnow in his own part of the world to make the record, just as his stats were exaggerated over his whole career. A Gavaskar slaying the worlds best on foreign wickets he is certainly not. It truly speaks for itself.

I'm sorry but people are failing to understand the fact that he made his 100th 100 against Bangladesh. Yet again, Sachin scores big against the worst of teams and everyone is amazed by this. Having said that, I still think hes a great player. But this hype was a little overrated and against Bangladesh... Not really that great. Sorry.

Thanks a lot Sachin for being the biggest joy, biggest inspiration and biggest hope of our generation! Happy to see this monkey taken off your back which is more of a media creation! Also, it's okay to score one ODI ton against BD after scoring 48 against the rest! Enjoy the rest of your career as much as fans lime me still do!

Posted by csowmi7 on (March 16, 2012, 13:31 GMT)

@slightlyintocricket Out of tendulkars 100 centuries he has scored only 6 against Bangladesh. And your ricky ponting averages a meager 23 on the flat pitches on India.

Posted by farooq011 on (March 16, 2012, 13:31 GMT)

Does sachin really deserve this century on a weak opponent

Any way congrats to MASTER

Posted by AjaySridharan on (March 16, 2012, 13:29 GMT)

Congrats Sachin!! We can all now go back to just enjoying your batting and not obsess over a number. I'm happy that you went through this rough patch for the last one year...it proved that you still desired, it proved that you could still grind it out, and getting it done against Bangladesh and not against the mighty Aussies, only made it that much more "human" and not a fairy tale. Carry on for a couple of more series and retire please!

Posted by tylerhans on (March 16, 2012, 13:28 GMT)

Sad to see comments that he scored his hundred against a weaker team...(his first hundred against bangladesh) .... what about 99 against other countries? Anyhow... he scored, I watched it ball to ball, as his fan for more than 20 years I couldn't ask for more.... yeah its bangladesh he scored against... now deal with it ...

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 13:28 GMT)

Cricinfo and its editor would have prepared these articles... days ago.. and finally publishes... today.

Yes,Its 100th hundred.... wow really awesome feeling for all indians

Posted by Al_Bundy1 on (March 16, 2012, 13:27 GMT)

Another worthless 10dulkar ODI century. If he had gotten out early, Dhoni and Raina would have more time to plunder this weak bowling attack. Does this 10dulkar ODI century mean we are going to lose this ODI? I hope not! We might squeeze by because this is BD.

Posted by MaruthuDelft on (March 16, 2012, 13:19 GMT)

A century against Bangladesh is just 25. A century in India is just a 50. A century in Sri Lanka or Pakistan is 75. So he has not scored 100 hundreds. Only centuries scored in Eng, Oz, SA and NZ should count.

Posted by Moneypenny on (March 16, 2012, 13:18 GMT)

O Sachin. congrats. You worked so hard in nets before this match against BD. You are a real God. You chose to play against the most fearsome cricket team with fastest bowlers and magical spinners who can turn the ball greater than Warne, in seaming conditions with rising deliveries at the speed of more than 110 mph and turning at the same time for spinners as if it were the last day in test cricket.Even Bradman dreamed of converting his 99.9 average into 100 against BD in his last days. Don't retire because gods dont. Just wait till Arjun becomes captain and then both of you can play together against Afghanistan to create a record of father and son scoring centuries in same match.Sir Sachin the god!

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 13:18 GMT)

CONGRATS! Let the nay sayers start bashing like some have already started. He scores only agnst minnows and not agnst better teams. His centuries results in losses and blah blah blah......To such negative critics at least have the decency to check the stats and then comment. Look Whatever you nay sayers feel, SRT is INDIAN and we r proud that he is. He is like Dravid a humble human being and a great ambassador of indian Cricket. LIVE WITH THAT

Well done Sachin and we all love it. You have given so much to the cricket and no one can take it away from you. Your hunger is still there for runs and I am sure you will play as long as you have desire and your body and reflexes permit you. You should only listen to your inner voice. Great job Sachin. All cricket lovers of the World love you.

I dont think hez best player ever. He played more matched then anyone.if i get to play 300 matches, i can score double century and on top he scored aginst Bangladesh so for me he is js average player

Well if he hung around long enough through series against decent teams failing time and time again he would eventually get to play Bangladesh wouldn't he. If only Indian played all there cricket at home he would have got more hundreds.....oh wait they already do.

Posted by Digimont on (March 16, 2012, 13:10 GMT)

Congrats and all that...he'll tell you it isn't an important stat - no stats are. What is important is that he couldn't make his 100th (although he had many many attempts) against quality opposition.

No doubt there will be many saying he's back and should play for more years yet. If he left the game tonight, I'd say he retired 6-9 months too late. Was one of the greats, but he and cricket deserved a departure at the top of his game. The longer he stays, the more we all will remember the exit, rather than the journey.

Posted by nyprespective on (March 16, 2012, 13:08 GMT)

what is PRESSURE?when you write an entrance exam with 20 odd members in a family want you to top it!!!when you run a race with 200 odd people want you to win it!!!when you contest an election with 20lac people rooting for you!!!when you make a movie and 2crore fans want it to be a hit!!!....spare a thought for the gentleman who carries the hope of more than a billion...... we can criticise him but can never dare to be in his shoes....

Posted by waheed1233 on (March 16, 2012, 13:07 GMT)

Mr. Tendulkar, Congratulations on achieving this. Honestly, I never understood the significance of the hype of 100th 100...but i really hope, in trying to pursue your personal objectives, the slowness of your innings will result in Bangladesh winning today. In addition, now that you have achieved your personal objective, for which you came back to ODIs again, its time for you to retire.

Posted by YorkshirePudding on (March 16, 2012, 13:04 GMT)

@Posted by on (March 16 2012, 11:35 AM GMT), You need to look at the stats again, hes scored 20 International 100's against Australia, against minows (BD, Kenya, Zimbabwe, NZ, etc) hes scored 25 International 100's. As I said when hes scored 100 FC hundreds it would be a cause for celebration.

Yes, Sachin, the little master finally got the century in ODI against Bangladesh and when we recall cricket history in our mind we have to recall Bangladesh too. Well done Sachin...:)

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:59 GMT)

Big congatulations!! Hopefully with the monkey and pressure off his back he can play freer til he decides to hang up the bat and ride off into the sunset, the best modern day batsman the world has seen. Saw the bulk of his 241 in Sydney 2004, have never seen a batsman conquer not just the bowling attack but rail against his own instincts in leaving flailable balls outside off that had proved his undoing previously in the series. The mark of a truly great batsman (screw that the mark of a great man fullstop!!) is recognising ones limitations. Up until then as a batsman he had none, but he had the humility given his poor showings in that series to change his style to get the runs. Truly a man apart.

Just hope that the media does not come up with another hype , that being , Sachin going on to accomplish a half century of centuries in both the formats !

Posted by SlightlyIntoCricket on (March 16, 2012, 12:52 GMT)

I honestly think this is completely unfair to call him the greatest for reaching landmarks like this. Teams like Australia and England only ever get to play "lesser" teams like Bangladesh once every blue moon when India basically a tournament devoted to it and they get to play mostly on good batting pitches especially at home where you can nearly reach out and touch the boundaries from the crease. If either of those countries got to play the "lesser" teams as much as India, players like Ricky Ponting would have more than 100 100s by now and we wouldn't be making such a big deal about it.

It's been a long time in coming but the great man finally gets his hundred. An honoury yorkshireman, we witnessed the master at the very beginning of his career playing county cricket for us, not long after the yorkshire born players only policy was lifted. We salute you sir. Whether or not it came against one of the better sides or not, it is still an achievement befitting of the legend that he is after many years of putting the best bowlers in the world to the sword.

Posted by Mahaanama on (March 16, 2012, 12:41 GMT)

Sachin,congratulations for your 100th century! You are my favourite ever foreign cricketer.I still remember your inning against England in 92 world cup. You got something like 84 & you were caught by Ian Bothem at boundary line. As I remember it was your top ODI score by that time. That was the time I started watching cricket now after 20 years I'm happy you are still playing and performing well. I'm sure even after 3 years from now you'll be playing better cricket than your flat track mates. I believe you still left lot of cricket to play.Best of luck for your future!

Thanks God its over! Sachin got his century, and in reaching there, he was all tired, weary and looked to haaven to thanks the Lord. Sachin now you must gracefully call it off after this Asia cup, its time to spend time with family and friends in more homely atmosphere. Now you have achieved it so on the note of achievement please take a more relaxed seat as Dravid did, and also Dada. Let young talent take it from here. Congratulations for bringing the records in tune with great feats. I will never forget Sachin playing as a school going kid for Harris shield and in Shivaji Park. BD too has also done fine by restricting India to 289 for 5, and not letting them go beyond 300+.Final word: Sachin you have been like the Hagan the Horrible. Yes, inspiration for rise and rise.

Salute to Sachin for his greatness all thru' the years.... See the successes instead of failures - as no one (any of the great's you name across the globe) hasn't done this before.

The records he holds, speaks the truth and proves his commitment in achieving this fete. He broke most of his predecessors records and has set very high standards for his successors to break in.

This is the biggest achievement in history of cricket, Thank u very much for this SIR SACHIN. And all the haters stop criticize the great of all time, he is not 25 anymore. Scoring a century at his age is a very big thing by it self, it doesn't matter if it is Bangladesh of England. We al have seen Pakistani batsman struggle against Bangladesh.

Special Congrats to all Indian fans all over the world.

Congratulations Sachin, now retire for the good of the game, the 100th hundred has only delayed the inevitable, the fact it game against Bangladesh in a nothing tournament is appropriate as far as I am concerned

India should have scheduled an ODI series with Bangladesh or Zimbabwe immediately after the world cup so this Wonderful feat could be achieved. Its a pity BCCI took so long to realize that.

Posted by ptnair on (March 16, 2012, 12:27 GMT)

a poor article.. it still has notions like " slowest century", "took 33 innings", "he failed to get three figures"... come on ESPN Cricinfo staffs, why do you hate him so much.. who else have these records.... now you guys will start asking for his retirement....

Posted by Yolk_Eater on (March 16, 2012, 12:26 GMT)

@rajeshj- i have just one thin to say to people like you- he didnt make his 99 centuries against minnows, and I hope you should know this was his 1st one against Bangladesh, so it's no piece of a cake to make a ton even if it's against bangladesh.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:26 GMT)

That's right guys! It Sachin has got 100 100s he is selfish but DON couldn't complete 100 so he's unselfish... U Aussies would have been on the moon if It was Ponting.... but alas! it is none other than Sachin....

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:24 GMT)

A CENTURY of CENTURIES at Sher-E-Bangla by Sher-E-India. Sachin lives very true to his name that is SACCHI.....TON......Tu.....KAR. Like many Millions around the globe, I too think its not human to break Sachin's record. Even after acheiving such an extra ordinary feat he is still as humble and decent as when he started his career. Centuries of Centuries is a record of this century and may be till the end of the world and so is a cricketer like Tendulkar will ever be born again. Long live Tendulkar! May Allah give you Good Health and Hidaayah.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:24 GMT)

The next topic of discussion will start 4m next match,'will Tendulkar get his 50th ODI century to the next match?How this man tackels those pressures only he knows.....really he is a genius....

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:24 GMT)

Well done , GREAT RECORD YOU WILL NEVER BE UNBEATEN!!! GO SACHIN!!!!

Posted by striker0007 on (March 16, 2012, 12:24 GMT)

btw for all cricket fans if any opener bat through 45 overs its more likely that he gets 200 but well done sachin for only scoring 100 , india could have easily posted 350 today but well done sachin for keeping the score down to 289 ....it took him one year to score his 100 in that time even bowlers like ashwin have scored one well done for scrorin your 100 against tired looking bangladesh bowlers

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:24 GMT)

Congrats to Sachin and all Indians!!!! Cricinfo Sugests, "Sachin has achieved almost everything that seemed impossible in cricket.. and now should achieve another seemingly impossible thing in cricket.. That is his retirement! He should retire on a high and what higher than this now.. isn't it?"

Posted by golubhai on (March 16, 2012, 12:24 GMT)

All those guys who r criticizing sachin jst remember that this is his first century agnst bangladesh.. He has got most centuries agnst the Australia the strongest team till 2008.. first jst see the stats and then say.. no player would ever be able to acheive this landmark.. Not even Punter, Lara or kallis. I m not criticizing them as they all r grt players, but not above Tendulkar..He jst had a lean patch of his career which every player gets in their life... Congrats Sachin

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:23 GMT)

Oh Sachin! You have made a billion hearts happy. This is the greatest betting achievement in Cricket. To no other cricketer in the world are fans so emotionally attached. We are looking forward to plenty more centuries. - Your devotee

Posted by joma13 on (March 16, 2012, 12:22 GMT)

shocker, he didn't get his 100th 100 against England, or Australia, or Sri Lanka, but against Bangladesh, in conditions he is most comfortable in....

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:21 GMT)

This is great milestone. Why we should state that this is against Bangladesh, he has not spared single country and has scored tons against all of them

Posted by Abdurrazaaq on (March 16, 2012, 12:21 GMT)

Sachin should play till end of 2013, in that way give the likes of Kohli, Sharma and Raina and the like to settle in, and in that way will reach 20 000 runs, coz there is no way in the near future any batsman will reach that.

Posted by CricBlogger05 on (March 16, 2012, 12:21 GMT)

@Laeeq Hashmi : Mate, you did not mention as to how many centuries the other players, whom you have compared with Tendulkar, have scored against the same minnows? I am sure no player scores every century against strong teams only! And to be honest, the winning percentage (centuries for a winning cause) you have shown for your carefully chosen players, isn't too higher than Tendulkar!

@Asif E Dwarika : So all his other 99 centuries were against WEAKER teams only, yeah? For your kind information, he has got 20 centuries against Australia, followed by other strongest teams and it was his FIRST century against Bangladesh. Come on, get a life and look at the bigger picture, not just last few months of his career!

STOP BEING OVERLY CRITICAL FRIENDS AND APPRECIATE A LEGEND FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE YOU MAY NOT SEE IN YOUR LIFETIME AGAIN!

@All

Those who desperately need SRT to retire can use their energy to climb down the Mt.Everest and jump from there. Life is not easy always. 1 in a billion have done something astonishingly. Just think before criticising that no one ever n never acheived this feet. Dravid may be a Wall but he can't be a Sachin and so as Ponting,Kallis,Kohli,Rohit as well

Posted by RISHI2016 on (March 16, 2012, 12:19 GMT)

when people out here are commenting about quality of his opposition, do yu feel the same when yu get something easily.. Please enjoy the moment. It was not that he just started playing with 99 centuries... Sachin in last 23 years has scored 264 50 plus innings which would be around 11 fifty plus scores, 35000 RUNS and the hope he gave to otherwise dull sad lives of most of Indians.... Day he retires expect atleast 25% people around the world shunning Cricket... savour the moment till it lasts....

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:18 GMT)

What an unbelievable achievement from this little maestro. Remember he carried the whole nations hope single-handedly in 1990-2000's until we found Rahul & Ganguly. I doubt even he wouldn't have dreamed about achieving 100's centuries when he started his career as an International cricketer. & to all those persons who may not be aware of Sachin's achievements till date, to name a few: he hasn't spit neither in cricket ground nor in public till date, he is the 1st person to wear our Indian tri-colour in his helmet. Being awarded best citizen since 1994. Best citizen won't come quite easily. There are number of things which you should follow i.e., paying taxes, electricity bills, etcetera, in time, obey traffic rules, doing charity works regularly, looking after your parents, including family-members, & the list is simply veerrryyyy llllooooonnnnngggggg.Congrats SRT & last but not the least India is proud to have a player like you. Next assignment bring back Asia Cup.

I always knew Tendulkar will need a miniow like Bangladesh to get the 100th ton. And donot be suprised if India losses this match, as is the case with most of his tons! Sorry to say but have hardly seen Tendulkar scroing in crunch matches, and between the 99th and 100 th century he got to play almost all the best teams of the world; but it was only againt the miniows he stood up!!!! A truth about Sachin that many donot see.....

labored against an arguably weaker opposition, but i am relived that its off him. Now he can concentrate on what is left, perhaps a 1 more season of awesomeness starting with PAK in the next game. Put in a few test 100's in the next home season and put these records well away from anyone else and retire.

Congrats Tendulkar! All those hating on Tendulkar, shame on you! All the other cricket players have played the same weak teams as well. Why didn't they achieve this milestone? Also, the stats don't back up your hate towards him! Be fair and just when criticizing your enemy! Tendulkar has the highest run rate against the top 8 teams so no, he did not get his 100 centuries against weak teams only.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 12:06 GMT)

Take a bow Little Master ! The much awaited "Century of Centuries" for a year is finally over ! Mission Accomplished ! Itz tym for another milestone of 50 Centuries in ODI which is 1 away !

Posted by waza1234 on (March 16, 2012, 12:06 GMT)

He plays test matches, ODI matches, 20/20 matches and the IPL and keeps getting the 50's and 100's at almost 39 years of age. This after nearly 25 years of cricket. A truly amazing player.

Posted by Jonathan_E on (March 16, 2012, 12:06 GMT)

It still has to be said: Five of Tendulkar's "international" ODI centuries have come against nations considered not good enough to play Test Cricket (four against Kenya, one against Namibia).

Against "Full Members" of the ICC, he still has five hundreds to go after today...

Posted by GoldenAsif on (March 16, 2012, 12:05 GMT)

Given Sachin's recent struggles against England, Australia and Sri lanka, he was most likely to get it against Bangladesh in Bangladesh! The 100th hundred is a nonsense & overhyped by the media. More aptly congrats to Tendulkar on his 49th ODI ton

Posted by VJGS on (March 16, 2012, 12:05 GMT)

Congratulations..... Finally the pressure on Tendulkar will be lifted and now he can play his natural game from now on wards. Hopefully, he'll play at least 10-20 more ODIs and at least 10 Tests before announcing retirement.

Posted by Johnny_129 on (March 16, 2012, 12:04 GMT)

CONGRATULATIONS SRT!!! A TRULY GREAT achievement by a truly great player! Also a great achievement for India - SRT makes us feel proud to be Indian.

The hunger is still on. he will still score plenty more. Just keep witnessing guys!!! No other audience is lucky enough to have such an extended session of entertainment. His entertainment has been across the generation, transnational and transcontinental. LOng live goodness!!!

This feat, 100 100's in both ODIs and Tests, is purely of statistical importance... If we could combine Test and ODI achievements, Muttaiah Murali and Shane Warne deserve a greater applause for taking 1000 wickets in both forms of the game, which have been dominated by the batsmen (right from the early nineties).

@all FYI Nowadays all cricket playing nations are preparing flat wickets for ODIs to save the game. This one just came against Bangladesh but one has to mind that this is the only 100 against Bangladesh foe him. He would have gone to WI tour avoiding IPL 4. The hw would have scored 110 centuries by now. Again to the critics just go n criticise your parents that they haven't tuaght you human values and avoid jealousy. It has been a boon for all INDIANS to watch this sight. Had he been just a legend he would have walked off. He has been and will be the only person to play this game in such a manner. Everyone want to see cricket for Sachin or atleast they know about this game called cricket only becausse of him.

A 100 is a 100 no matter it is against Bangla or anybody, you still have to be there with the bat and hit the ball. Sachin will not care about this. he can keep going until next year may be, but take my word guys 100's will not stop here for him until he retires. WELL DONE SACHIN

Just hope that the media does not come up with another hype , that being , Sachin going on to accomplish a half century of centuries in both the formats ! As for the master, but for the last year's performance, he was dominant, a nightmare for any bowler and an ambassador for Indian Cricket,India and Cricket in the international arena ! Thou art the greatest master ! We hail before thee !

Posted by asif.muhammad on (March 16, 2012, 11:56 GMT)

Welldone sachin. You acheived this milestone against the powerfull bowling of bangladesh on fastest track in the world. Poor show from bangladesh on such favrouable conditions. Hates off to australia and england who restricted sachin on batting friendly conditions.

Posted by ravi-1967 on (March 16, 2012, 11:54 GMT)

Guys look at his average against other countries and in other countries outside the subcontinent. Today no one can dream of scoring 100 centuries in international cricket and he has done it.

Wake up you guys who say Sachin does not deserve this. Open your eyes and see what he has acheived.

Posted by Sanjeev_Talwani on (March 16, 2012, 11:46 GMT)

There is no doubt Tendulkar is the greatest batsman in cricket history - better than Bradman or anyone else. If Bradman played in Sachin's time, I doubt he'd have achieved even half that Sachin has. Bradman played at a time when cricket was only a leisurely sport instead of today's competitive sport. Bradman did not have to shoulder the burden of expectations of a billion countrymen and perform under that pressure. Bradman played at a time when there used to be like a couple of test matches per year and no ODIs and T20s and did not have to suffer from exhaustion because of overwork. Sachin has played extraordinarily well in these conditions and there has been no better batsman than Sachin ever nor will there be in the future.

Posted by balabarca on (March 16, 2012, 11:45 GMT)

why do people bother this 100th ton against bangladesh, do u people think its not valued.dont forget about is remaining 99 hundreds, out of this 20 centuries against australia, 13 against south africa, where these teams have a dreadful attacks.lets appreciate his efforts.23 years on the field, 100 centuries, 34 thousand runs, first player to score 200.33 centuries against australia and sa, avg 56 in test, avg 45 in ODI, avg around 50 against aus & Sa, guys u people still want a guy to prove something, if some player scores a fifty, he will be applauded, but if sachin scores a 50 , people will be disappointed that he didnt score a century, thats the pressure he has every time he goes into the crease. earlier i mentioned the stats against aussie and sa just to mention he scored against the great teams. guys who understands the game of cricket will pay tribute to him..Am one among them, I SALUTE SACHIN

Posted by R335M on (March 16, 2012, 11:44 GMT)

Sher khan is wrong. Sachin has scored more hundreds against Australia ( previous number 1 team in tests ans ODIs). Also 58 of his centuries have been away from India.

he is The God and you don't defile them by posting pathetic comments. for those who are talking about Sachin scoring against minnows, check your facts before you comment. He has scored the maximum number of centuries against Australia, this is his first against Bangladesh. BTW it is the same team which knocked India out of the 2007 cup. As for India winning matches there is another fact- he also holds the record for maximum number of man of the matches in international cricket. so get on your knees and pay your homage to Him.

how many times we are waiting for it? Tendulker done 2 blunders in last year 1 he missed series in westindise another is he not played one day series against England and westindise. he can avoid ipl to play for india and avoid injurers.

Well done, Sachin Tendulkar

Posted by Radha4krishnan on (March 16, 2012, 11:35 GMT)

Congrats...............Thanks for the retiring announcement.....:P

Posted by subharaman on (March 16, 2012, 11:35 GMT)

Congratulations!! Could have been done at Lords one year back against England. But better late than never is Sachin's policy. Every body including me predicted that Sachin would complete his 100th ton against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup. It was expected. Now he can peacefully retire and mentor youngsters.

Posted by YorkshirePudding on (March 16, 2012, 11:35 GMT)

Congrats to SRT on getting 100 international Tons, however it is a bit of a made up milestone. If he gets 100 FC 100's then It will be a cause for celebration, only 22 more to go......

take a bow , master. you are a miracle. Now the monkey is off, enjoy your sunset phase of the most illustrious career

Posted by Aryansblue on (March 16, 2012, 11:33 GMT)

Non INDIAN people r feeling ego & jealous of SACHIN TENDULKAR. Comments pouring to take retirement etc stuff. I Bet even the total number of some whole team's century is not equal to sachin's.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 11:33 GMT)

Congratulations Sachin!! You have done it!! more to come....wish you all the BEST!!!!

Great got greater thats what you are SACHIN.Congragulations from all your SOUTH AFRICAN FANS on reaching a milestone no mortal will reach in my lifetime.Your are the ULTIMATE CRICKETER.

Now for 50 one day centuries!!! then 100 one day half centuries!! then 200 one day sixes! then 100 first class centuries!!! then

A contrived achievement against Bangladesh on a flat, flat pitch.

Posted by HusseyForever on (March 16, 2012, 11:33 GMT)

He is just another flat-track bully scoring heavily against weaker teams like Bangladesh, Kenya, West Indies & NZ. He was really desperate for this 100 & have made mockery of himself towards his journey to this 100th 100.

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 11:32 GMT)

Bangaladesh would take a 100 of 150 balls anytime. The presure is on the other poor players to get India t a decent total. Man How much a country takes a back seat over personaloties

Posted by johntycodes on (March 16, 2012, 11:32 GMT)

What a suprise. It took him to play pathetic bangladesh to score his hundred. If ponting had played bangladesh the amount of times that india have he would be the leading run scorer.

Tendulkar has gone on for too long obsessed with this obsession. Will he finally now stand down and open up the future of Indian cricket? Nope.

Posted by KingOwl on (March 16, 2012, 11:30 GMT)

Wow, that too against Bangladesh! I must say that he should have retired with 99 centuries. People outside India would have had far more respect for the great man that way. This is such an anti-climax. Failed against all the big teams over the months, and now got it against lowly Bangladesh. Most players never know when to leave, unfortunately.

Posted by LynadThike on (March 16, 2012, 11:30 GMT)

Well done Sachin! Although he probably doesn't rate this milestone as highly as everyone else seems to!

Such a shame for such a great player to score 100th century after more than a year and yet against the weakest side of Cricket world.

All my life I've been playing street cricket, book cricket, computer cricket and what not and I haven't scored a hundred centuries in all of these combined. Thats how big an achievement it is.

Posted by screamingeagle on (March 16, 2012, 11:22 GMT)

Well done Sach, an achievement that may well be never surpassed. As usual I can see the jealous lowlifes making snide remarks. :)

"Satisfaction doesn't come with achievement but with effort, full effort is full victory" (By Mahatma Gandi) but here this man has achieved an extra mile by his full effort and achievement altogether. He is a true legend! Hats off to Sachin Tendulkar!, this is going to be a beginning of a new era in indian cricket!

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 11:22 GMT)

opps! Finally you did it against Bangaladesh; I am sure this could have boosted Sachin moral after successive small inings

Congratessssssss Sachin.........

Posted by   on (March 16, 2012, 11:20 GMT)

Some while ago, I have read in this very site something like this '100th' ton not being logical comparing may be with dollors and pounds or something like that. I, personally, don't care and give anything for this as EPIC or so but yes I certainly have huge respect for what Sachin has achieved as a Cricket player. That in itself is immense and the man of his caliber DO NOT need any 'self-made' feat to prove his height. Publish it cricinfo, if u think u stand for cricket and not for any individual.

Posted by doosra_inventer on (March 16, 2012, 11:20 GMT)

Posted by LillianThomson on (March 16, 2012, 11:19 GMT)

Tendulkar has been one of the world's top batsmen for 23 years, without ever standing above the rest like a Bradman or a Richards. We should all applaud his endurance and his hunger. And he was an outstanding player at his peak, and only really went into decline five years ago, after which he has still remained a very good batsman, albeit a liability in the field. But it is a shame that he represents the triumph of the player over the team in India, as the veterans have gone on and on and on and blocked the development of the next generation. With its population and passion for cricket, India should always be the number one Test team, but has managed just 16 months at the top in the last 35 years. And it won't get better until players with a team ethic replace the likes of Tendulkar, Gambhir and Zaheer.

I am from Pakistan and have watched the match to see the moment when the great player reach a milestone which probably nobody else will be able to do at least in my life.

Posted by Rajeshj on (March 16, 2012, 11:12 GMT)

Bravo Sachin... could not reach the milestone against better opposition in England and Australia... the world knew it that he opted to play in Asia cup for some mouth watering weak bowling attacks and flat pitches... and he has proved them right... would be happy if he retires at least after this...
