`Tendulkar`s genius needs no further amplification
London: The British media on Saturday hailed Sachin Tendulkar`s landmark 100th international century, with one newspaper claiming the Indian`s name is already etched in history and that the feat is nothing but an "artificial" record which will barely concern him.
"India`s greatest batsman has just made his 100th international century, but it is an artificial record which will barely concern him," the `Guardian` wrote. Tendulkar achieved the landmark in Asia Cup against Bangladesh in Mirpur yesterday.
"Tendulkar`s genius needs no further amplification here, or indeed anywhere. One more century which he has finally achieved against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup in Dhaka makes him neither a better player nor worse.
"His record over the years speaks for itself without the artifice of milestones to highlight it. The runs have flowed in a quantity unequalled in international cricket, a tribute not just to his immense skill and tenacity but to his longevity," the paper further wrote. `The Telegraph` stated that Tendulkar has achieved immortality with the latest feat.
"Sachin Tendulkar has achieved immortality after finally scoring his long awaited 100th century against Bangladesh on Friday. Many have already touted Tendulkar`s magical feat as unmatchable, a record, which might stay forever.
"His 100th century is 29 more centuries than his nearest challenger on the all-time list, Australia`s Ricky Ponting," wrote `The Telegraph`.
