Waiting for 1 year, 33 innings, then Sachin became Alexander of centuries

New Delhi: So far in cricket history, there is only one batsman who has scored 100 centuries in international cricket. This player is Sachin Tendulkar. There are many records in the name of this legendary batsman of India and hence he is called the God of Cricket. The work that no one ever thought, Sachin has done in the world of cricket, whether it is to score a double century in ODIs or a century of centuries, but Sachin’s 100th century did not come easily. Sachin had to wait a long time for this. This century came on this day i.e. 16 March in 2012. Sachin had to wait for more than a year for his 100th century. He scored his 99th international century on March 12 against South Africa in the 2011 World Cup played in India. After this, centuries were not coming out of his bat and the pressure was also building on him. Sachin himself had accepted this. Sachin ended this wait after a year against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup.
