Team India lifts Sachin after winning world cup 2011

The name Sachin Tendulkar hardly needs an introduction. And when you hear the word ‘Century’, it is hardly anyone’s guess name comes to the mind first. Arguably the best batsman in the history of the game, Tendulkar has broken every possible record in hitting the triple-digit.

He has most centuries in Tests, ODIs and the joint-most centuries in the Cricket World Cup. And of course, the legendary cricketer has a total of 100 centuries in international cricket. (God help anyone trying to break that record!) Let us take a look at all Sachin Tendulkar centuries.

Master Blaster Test Century List

The Master Blaster started his career as a 16-year-old sensation against Pakistan in 1989. And he got his first century in his ninth Test, against England in Manchester – Start of an Era! First of many! With his 35th century, against Sri Lanka in 2005, Tendulkar broke Sunil Gavaskar’s record of most test centuries. His last century came against South Africa at Cape Town in 2011. Here is the list of all 51 centuries – Yes FIFTY-ONE!

ODI Centuries

Tendulkar made his ODI debut in the same tour of Pakistan in 1989. And although it took him a little while to get going in ODIs in terms of centuries, he ended up with 49 centuries. The legendary batsman scored his first ODI century against Australia in 1994.

His 46th ODI century, the inning of 200* against South Africa was the first instance of a batsman scoring an ODI double-century. Tendulkar’s century against Bangladesh in the 2012 Asia Cup ended the year-long wait of his 100th century! It also turned out to be the Master Blaster’s last career 100.
