Sachin creates history with 100th ton | congratulations....||A long wait for the coveted landmark came to an end as Sachin Tendulkar scored his 100th century on Friday against Bangladesh at Dhaka.
Iconic Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar on Friday scripted history by becoming the first cricketer in the world to score 100 international centuries, a phenomenal feat which may remain unconquered for years to come.
Tendulkar, who already has a pile of runs and records to his credit, achieved the incredible milestone when he turned spinner Shakib—ul Hasan towards fine—leg in the Asia Cup match against Bangladesh here.
The star batsman first looked heaven-wards and then acknowledged the cheers of his teammates and the crowd by lifting his bat.
It was the end of a long wait for the 38—year—old veteran, who had gone 33 innings and a year without a century. The right—hander made his 99th international ton in a World Cup match against South Africa in Nagpur on March 12.
Since then it had been an agonising wait for the maestro, whose every inning was watched with anticipation. He came close on quite a few occassions, only to miss the milestone so much so that it became a huge monkey on his back and an unwanted distraction during every series that India played.

International media hails Tendulkar: But one calls it an 'articifial record'
As Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar crossed the long-awaited milestone at Mirpur on Friday, international media hailed him as the 'God of cricket.' And termed his record of 100 international tons as invincible.
Here is how some of the major publications across the globe reacted to the maestro's landmark feat.
The Guardian : Mike Selvey, a columnist opined that for India's finest cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar completing his century of centuries is just an artificial record, something of statistical irrelevance for him. It reads :
"Is all the hype disproportionate? Does he really need it or indeed has he wanted the extra attention? Certainly it would appear that it has weighed on his mind these past 12 months and may well have been something he could have done without. Each failure to reach three figures has been marked down as a sign of pressure without recognising the cyclical nature of batting."
The Telegraph: States that Sachin Tendulkar has achieved immortality after finally scoring his long awaited 100th century against Bangladesh on Friday. In the article ex-cricketer Derek Pringle writes, many have already touted Tendulkar's magical feat as unmatchable, a record, which might stay forever. His 100th century is 29 more centuries than his nearest challenger on the all-time list, Australia's Ricky Ponting.
The Wall Street Journal: The column in WSJ says it has been a long wait of a year and four days, but Sachin Tendulkar, the Little Master, has finally done it. He has scored 100 centuries in international cricket, which is an incredible sporting feat that may never be matched....being a human...
