New Delhi: On March 12, 2011 Sachin Tendulkar did something that he has not done in the last twelve months - score a century.
On the same day last year, Tendulkar had scored 111 against South Africa during their league match in the ICC World Cup. Although India lost that match by 3 wickets, Tendulkar had raised his 99th international hundred. And since then the wait for his hundredth ton has continued.
But this isn't the longest gap between his centuries. Having made his first international hundred in August 1990, it took Tendulkar 17 months (a year and 5 months) to score his second century. And since then he has made 99 centuries - 51 in Tests and 48 in ODIs.
