Tendulkar, who had been stuck on 99 centuries for a year, reached the milestone on Friday when he hit to square leg and ran a single against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup.

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.
