Sachin Tendulkar achieved a milestone that had eluded him till now. A century at Adelaide – home to the legendary Sir Donald Bradman. In the first day of the final Test at Adelaide, Sachin today held the Indian innings together with a spirited 124 not out.
This was his 39th Test century. He leads the list of century makers in Test cricket. He is now way ahead of Brian Lara with 34 and Ricky Ponting with 33 Test hundreds.
With 11, 740 runs, Sachin is only 213 runs behind Brian Lara for the most runs in Test cricket.
The reason why the late Sir Donald Bradman is considered the best batsman ever lies in the fact that he scored 6996 Test runs in 80 innings with an average which will never be beaten of 99.94!!
