Sachin Tendulkar on this day in 2012, created history by becoming the only cricketer to score 100 centuries in International cricket.
The 100th ton didn’t come easy for Sachin as he had to wait nearly a year to get from 99 to 100 centuries. Last time Sachin Tendulkar scored 99th International Hundred was in 2011 World Cup against South Africa.
India were playing Asia Cup tournament against Bangladesh in Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka. India batted first and this was the day Sachin Tendulkar reached the Century of Centuries.
