Sachin, king of records, is also known as by God of Cricket because a new record always waits for him whenever he steps on the ground. Recently, he has added a new turn in his career graph by hitting a century against England.
He played a superb inning in the match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium of Bangalore. He scored 120 runs in 115 balls, which include 10 fours and 5 big sixes. However, the result of the match was tie but still the match would be remembered because of the history created by Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.

After completing the century, he hit 2 more sixes which helped him to take the score to 120. This brilliant innings came to an end when Michael Yardy took a fine catch by running over from the mid-off on James Anderson’s ball. It was the 39th over of India’s inning.
