Sachin Tendulkar is often appreciated for obtaining a batting average of 40 and above, in each nation he played Test cricket. The admiration becomes necessary when you get to know that he did it in as many as 10 countries. But, had he not performed greatly on his last tour to South Africa, it would have been left uncompleted. Before coming to South Africa on the 2010-11 tour, his Test average in this country was 39.76. An average outing in this series and Sachin's average could stall below 40 in South Africa, but the master did not let this happen and performed with such mastery that he took his average to well over 40. He scored two centuries in this series, and his average in South Africa read a beatific 46.44.


#3 ODI hundred against Bangladesh

It was Sachin
It was Sachin's last ODI against Bangladesh and second-last ODI overall.

Sachin Tendulkar scored at least one ODI century against each opponent he played more than two matches. But, it was not true until Sachin played his last ODI against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup 2012. In this match, Sachin accomplished yet another milestone when he scored his maiden ODI hundred against Bangladesh. It was his 12th match against them, and before that, he had scored only two half-centuries in 11 outings. Sachin scored 114 in this match, and what made the occasion more special that it was his 100th century in international cricket.
