Sachin…Sachin..This name reverbs in the Indian cricket community till date and the magician is worth of the status- ‘God of Cricket’. It was on this day the little master began his journey in scoring the international tons. 30 years ago at the age of 17 years and 112 days on August 14, 1990, in a Test against England at Old Trafford Sachin Tendulkar smashed an unbeaten 119 off 189 deliveries. It was Sachin’s 9th Test Match and his performance announced his arrival on the world stage.
He became the second-youngest batsman to score a Test century at the time and at present he’s the third-youngest century-scorer in Tests. In a career of over two decades, the little master scored a total of 100 centuries (51 in tests and 49 in ODI’s) and today as we celebrate 30 years of this historic knock, lets recall and share the best century scored by the Master Blaster himself.
