Hi Friends, Batting genius Sachin Tendulkar scaled yet another peak in his glittering career when he scored his 51st Test century on the third day of the final Test match against South Africa at Newlands Stadium in Cape Town on Tuesday This is First century in the year 2011 by Sachin and a batsman at the international stage. He is truly a great cricketer. I hope many more records in Cricket world for Sachin and India, World Cup would be one of them. What do you say?

I think this is the fourth straight year when he has scored a century in his first innings of the year. When you start the year so well, the rest of the year definitely goes smooth :). He is simply getting better every year and bowlers really must be dreading him. Compare with Ponting who once was touted as his competitor for the maximum number of hundreds and now we are probably looking at a retired Ponting and Sachin is still going strong. Almost every one in the Indian team grew up with Sachin as an idol and the master is still going strong!! Hats off!! Cheers! Ram

he is getting better in every match . I will not compare sachin and Ponting, may be after Sachin stops playing and Ponting is still playing for next 10 years, he might beat the record but as a person he is the worst in Cricket world for me. Thank You for sharing.

Hi their Yes it was great performance by him. Specially on South African bouncy pitches. Well it is very hard to bat on such pitches but he is really going well in this series. Still everybody are bragging that he is playing for his centuries.. But why they don't think that all this centuries are leading India to good position.

really a great master inning this was.it was not his usual fluent hundred ,he worked hard for his runs and showed to his critics that why he is best.i think he was well supported by harbhanjan to make sure india would not find themselves behind southafrica.i think match is nicely poised and tendulkar will be needed in the fourth inning also if india want to create a history.eagerly waiting to see him bat in 4th inning.regards.:P

We cannot stop others from talking anything about sachin but they need some introspection to understand the fact that whatever Sachin scores is part of the Indian Team total runs. he has got enought to be remembered and contributed to the fullest of his ability. Let the people talk but he is just doing excellent Thank You for sharing

Sir Sachin is treated as the God of Cricket. I think he is a very good man in real life too, he is a good friend, good parent and a good human being. I am glad to know that he is the opener for scoring the century in this new year. I think he will keep entertaining the people like this throughout this year. I wish him good luck for the World Cup.

Hi Ajay, Hats off to Sachin. That his 51st century would follow so quickly was not expected. Now once again he seems to get into his runs and he would continue this form till his retirement.

yeh, I did not expect that and I do not know if Sachin himself did expect that. he is such a natural player and does it everytime we do not expect. 100 of 100 is not very for for him ,. Thank You for sharing.

After having his best year ( runs scored) last year, Sachin has begun 2011 on bright note. This cannot be luck, He deserves all these unique distinctions. This is a fighting century against the world's best fast bowler. The century should give sachin a lot of satisfaction. In the 91st over, he refused a single & kept harbhajan away from steyn. This should tell the kind of positive mindset he is in now. great going sachin !

yes, 2010 turned as the best year for Sachin and he got a great start in 2011. hoping that will continue for Sachin, India and world cricket and we will see many more milestones. Thank You for sharing

With the way Steyn has been ripping the new ball, its a testament to his ability that Sachin has scored the century. Where it concerns the world cup, India are certainly amongst the fore-runners for the trophy, as are (it pains me to say this) England. Australia are beyond just a simple dip in form, and yet somehow they still manage to bring their game to the big stage. South Africa still need to get that choker off their necks if they want to win. Apart from the opposition, India have another major obstacle standing in their way: the fact that no home team has ever won the World Cup
