Tendulkar's best Test tons
Sachin Tendulkar has possessed a rare gift: an unprecedented ability to reel off centuries. Not for him the huge double-hundreds and the monumental triple-hundred: in 198 Tests, he never reached 250, but if one were to rate batsmen purely on their appetite for triple-figures, Tendulkar would stand alone. Like Don Bradman's immortal average of 99.94, Tendulkar's 100 international tons is a mark that could well last forever.
Each of Tendulkar's 51 Test centuries is a chapter in the art of batsmanship. His first Test ton, scored in 1990 as a 19 year old, was a lesson in the construction of fourth-innings rearguards. His most recent Test century, against a red-hot Dale Steyn, on a crackling Newlands deck, was a celebration of technique and determination. In between times, he constructed 49 more hundreds, all around the world, in different circumstances, against the best of attacks.
