    Senior Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was presented the Wisden India Outstanding Achievement award for completing a century of 100 international hundreds here. He achieved the milestone while playing against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup in March. 

    The event was organized by FidelisWorld and the iconic batsman was presented with a trophy. Made from crystal, it features a cricket ball resting on the open pages of a book. 

    The 49 one-day international centuries that Tendulkar has made are listed on one side, and his 51 Test hundreds on the other. 

    Tendulkar spoke on various aspects of his career at the function such as his favorite innings — a match-winning fourth-innings hundred against England in Chennai in December 2008, balancing play and personal life, and the influence of his late father on his career.
