Ton up Tendulkar keeps a straight face after historic feat

MIRPUR: The 100 that had been one year in waiting finally came about as Sachin Tendulkar completed his century of tons but showed minimal emotion after reaching a milestone that is unlikely to be emulated in the near or distant future.

After 33 innings and over a year, Tendulkar finally got to the elusive ton against Bangladesh in an Asia Cup league match at a packed Sher-e-Bangla stadium here.

It took him 138 deliveries, one of the most arduous one-day efforts by the 38-year-old right-hander, to get to the 100 that had become as much a talking point as the team’s fortunes in the past 365 days.

The bowler against whom it came about was Shakib Al Hasan and the moment was the fourth delivery of the 43rd over of Indian innings.

Tendulkar clipped it down to square leg and jogged the single, gave a long hard stare to his bat after taking off his helmet before looking heavenward in his signature style. What was missing was emotion.

The diminutive batsman, the most successful batsman in international cricket right now, kept it subdued.

He shook hands with Suresh Raina, his partner at the other end, and raised his bat to acknowledge the cheering fans with a straight face giving little insight into what was going on his mind amid the drama.

But the teammates in the dressing room were as expressive as they could be as they all got up from their seats to applaud the veteran as he added another feather to an already overcrowded cap.

However, reaching the milestone was no easy task for the player who often makes batting look effortless.-PTI
