India Cricket Live

Tendulkar, the mighty little master

Sachin Tendulkar scored a record-breaking 35th hundred in Test cricket. At 4.45 in New Delhi, the little master turned a ball from Sri Lanka's Chaminda Vaas off his hip and took the consuming single. Upon reaching the bowler's end, he raised his bat and looked to the heavens. The crowd packed into the Feroz Shah Kotla ground roared for their champion, the master of the game. It had been a long wait. Tendulkar scored his 33rd century in April 2004. A year ago he equalled Sunil Gavaskar's tally with a 34th century against Bangladesh. Since then the whole of India has been nervously waiting.
India ended the day on 245-3 with VVS Laxman hitting 69 and Sourav Ganguly unbeaten on 39.
Tendulkar, who had not been in great batting form since returning from a six-month injury absence, took 177 balls for his century, hitting 13 fours and a six along the way.
And he reached the milestone in 125 Tests, the same amount Gavaskar took to score 34 centuries.
