Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar today notched up his 39th test century at the Adelaide oval on first day of the ongoing 4th and last test between India and Australia. Many, including Australian spin legend Shane Warne has predicted that Sachin would play some special innings during this Australian tour as it might be his last tour Down Under. At 34, he is not getting any younger and he has had few injury scare over last couple of years.
Sachin started his innings cautiously, but true to his billings, he started to open up after lunch and he had a 160 runs partnership with V.V.S. Laxman who made a patient 51. Sachin literally toyed with the Aussie attack hitting 10 boundaries and 3 huge sixes. He reached his first century at the Adelaide oval in just 133 balls when a drive raced through a diving Hogg to the boundary. Later on Sachin told the media that he is enjoying his game right now and does not want to spoil it by thinking when he shout hang up the boots.
Well done Sachin.
