New Delhi: Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar on Friday shared a special memory from the past where he had hit his first Test century today at Old Trafford 25 years ago against England.
Tendulkar, the only cricketer to have scored 100 international centuries, shared a photograph from the match on Twitter. The maestro also said that he would pick the bat today for a special session.

In the Test which was played from August 9-14, 1990, the 42-year-old scored 119 off 189 balls as a result of which India managed to draw the match.
Even though he had established himself as a formidable force in world cricket by then, a maiden century eluded the Little Master for quite some time before it came against England on their home ground.
In the first innings of the same Test match, Tendulkar had scored 68 runs, the third-highest of the innings.
