Former Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar plundered 100 international tons during his illustrious 24-year journey with Indian cricket. However, a T20 century eluded him up until the fag end of his career. Thankfully for fans of the cricketer, the ‘Master Blaster’ did reach the three-figure mark in the truncated form of the game during his time with the Mumbai Indians franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament.
Sachin Tendulkar captained and played for the Mumbai Indians franchise between the years 2008 and 2013. While he plundered runs at will and even top-scored in the 2010 event, he raced to his maiden IPL hundred in a 2011 game against the now-defunct Kochi Tuskers Kerala.
On April 15, 2011, Sachin Tendulkar and co. took on the Kochi Tuskers Kerala in the 13th match of the tournament. Batting first, Tendulkar scored an exact 100* from 66 balls in an entertaining knock which comprised of 12 blazing boundaries and three sixes. His grandiose century from the match in contention remained his only T20 and IPL hundred until the day of his retirement in 2013.
Despite his retirement from the game, Sachin Tendulkar continues to remain associated with the Mumbai Indians franchise. The legendary cricketer is currently a batting mentor of the Rohit Sharma-led side.
