Tendulkar gets Wisden India Outstanding Achievement award

June 11, 2012 16:48 IST

Batting ace Sachin Tendulkar was presented the Wisden India Outstanding Achievement award for completing a century of 100 international hundreds, in Dubai on Monday.

He achieved the milestone while playing against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup in March.

The iconic batsman was presented a trophy at an event organised by FidelisWorld.

Made from crystal, it resembles a cricket ball resting on the open pages of a book.

The 49 One-Day International centuries that Tendulkar scored are listed on one side, and his 51 Test hundreds on the other.

At the function, Tendulkar spoke on various aspects of his career, like his favourite innings, the match-winning fourth innings hundred against England at Chennai in December 2008, balancing play and personal life, and the influence that his late father had in shaping his career.
