Chittagong:

While saving India the blushes against Bangladesh in the first Test at Chittagong, batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar slammed 44th ton of his Test career on Monday.

This was his third century against Bangladesh.

On Sunday, Sachin had reached yet another milestone when he became the first batsman to score 13,000 Test runs.

The highest run accumulator in both the Test and ODI versions of the game went into the first Test needing 30 runs to reach the milestone. Batting on 28, Tendulkar pulled Mahmudullah in the 36th over and the ball raced to the rope to bring up his 13000 runs in Tests in the 36th over.

He also holds the record for scoring maximum runs in ODIs, 17394 with the help of 45 centuries.
