The Little Master, Sachin tendulkar is one of the best players in any format of cricket. he has dominated every bowler every team. He is the all time top-scorer in ODIs and very near to become all time top-scorer in tests as well. His art of century making is tremendous...!!! He has scored 41 hundreds in ODIs.. huuuuh!! the most number of centuries by any player and he is far away ahead from others in terms of centuries. He has also scored 37 hundreds in tests. These make 78 International hundreds!!!!!! Wow!! He is still playing and playing very well. So sadly, Recently he has been out many times in the nervous nineties. otherwise this amzing figure of 78 would have surely increased. What you think how many centuries the little master score till the end of his career???? I think something about 83-85 international hundreds?!?! Give your views

yes he has a great century making record, and if we take the amount of times he got out in the 90's there were room for many more centuries. i really wish he could make a century of centuries ie, 100 100's in international cricket, which will be a tough achievement for any one to beat. The great things about those runs is that he has always scored it at good average and even better strike rate. He is nearing to the end of his great cricketing career, he is not the sachin we wanted to see ever since he has had those back injuries and stopped playing those majestic straight lofted shots over the bowlers head. Never the less his bat still keeps talking and getting the runs at the same rate even with out playing any attacking shots. i hope he could score 22 more hundreds and make the tally of 100 100's, even though thats very unlikely!

Sachin Tendulkar is, according to me,the world's best cricket player. He never gets nervous in any situation and he truly attacks the bowlers with his great batting. After all, every successful man does have a fall. Sachin has had many falls yet he emerged to be the best player with so many centuries for his name. And the centuries not only helped him but it helped the indian team as well. Thats the beauty. I think he will reach 50 hundreds in ODI.

Well, he is one of the best players international cricket has ever produced. No doubt about that. Even the late Sir Don Bradman has credited him to be playing similar to his style. I've always wanted Sachin to score 100 international hunderds in both forms of the game. Tests and one-dayers. Am just keeping my fingers crossed that he reaches 50 hundreds at least in one-dayers, but he's been too unlucky to miss out on wrong dismissals 3 or 4 times off late.

That is right. I would not be surprised to see a total of 85 centuries from Sachin. He is playing well. He deserves many more centuries. Unlike other old players, he is not tired player. He has determination, you can see it in his eyes when he is on the ground. He has matured a lot and modified his style from old attacking player to clam and cool player. That is his biggest plus point. Some people talk that he should retire. But I strongly belileve that he must continue to play cricket. Indian cricket needs his services for some more time. He has been taking necessary rest for some matches. It is good that he is not blocking the entry of other new players. By taking rest he is allowing other young players to play more international games and have experience too. He is great....

Well, he still has about maximum of 2 years or even 3 years of play left. If he tries his best, there is a good chance that he can accomplish 50 centuries in both ODI's and test. Even if he reaches 50 tons in ODI's its a permanent record and impossible to break or even level. In the past few years due to injuries, he wasn't playing well. But now, he is regaining form. So best of luck to him to get at least 50 hundreds in ODIs.

If you would have asked this question few years ago, we could have predicted something stable. But as we have seen since last few years, indian cricket is so fluctuating that nothing can be planned or predicted about it. There has been times when we expected players to play very well and they just did not do anything , and there has been times when we had no hopes and suddenly we find someone making the crowd crazy with 6 times sixers.......so we really cannot say what will sachin do in future....or what any other player will do........we only have to wait and see.
