Tendulkar’s 5 most memorable centuries

Sachin Tendulkar’s five most memorable centuries in chronological order after he became the first batsman to score 100 international hundreds on Friday:
n 119 not out, England v India Test
match, Old Trafford, August 1990.
Tendulkar himself regards his first Test century as one of his best.
n 114, Australia v India Test
match, Perth, February 1992.
The 19-year-old Tendulkar mastered the fast Perth wicket to hit a brilliant 114 against an all-out pace attack of Craig McDermott, Merv Hughes, Paul Reiffel and Mike Whitney.
n 155 not out, India v Australia
Test match, Chennai, March 1998.
India, who trailed by 71 runs in the first innings, rode on Tendulkar’s brilliant unbeaten 155 in the second knock to set Australia a target of 348 runs and win the match by 179 runs.
n 103 not out India v England Test
match, Chennai, December 2008.
In one of the most emotional moments in Indian cricket, Tendulkar engineered a remarkable win over England two weeks after his home city of Mumbai was ravaged by the brutal November 26 terrorist attack.
Set 387 for victory on the fourth afternoon, India achieved the highest run chase on home soil and the fifth highest in history as Tendulkar ensured that Virender Sehwag’s bright start of 83 off 68 balls was not wasted.
n 200 not out, India v South Africa
one-dayer, Gwalior, February 24, 2010.
The first and only double-century in the history of men’s limited-overs international cricket fittingly came from the most prolific batsman in the game.
