Tendulkar scores cricket's first 100th century

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) -- Sachin Tendulkar has become the first cricketer to score 100 international centuries.

Tendulkar, who had been stuck on 99 centuries for a year, reached the milestone on Friday.

He hardly celebrated, with Bangladesh seemingly more excited than the "Little Master" as they congratulated him.

Tendulkar already holds most of the sport's major batting records, including most runs and centuries in both five-day tests and one-day internationals.

He's universally acknowledged as the best batsman of the modern era.
