Tendulkar one hundred away from 50 Test ton

After achieving the Huge task of being the first cricketer to perform 14,000 runs in Test cricket on Sunday, Sachin Tendulkar is gradually approaching another wonderful milestone as he finished his 49th Test century, against Australia, here on Monday.

Tendulkar hit off-spinner Nathan Hauritz for a huge six over long-on in the third ball of the 59th over to bring up his 49th Test ton. Tendulkar now has 95 international centuries, including 46 in the ODIs.

With just five centuries left to finish a ton of tons in international cricket, he is likely to finish the 50 Test centuries by the time the three-Test series against New Zealand ends next month.
