New Delhi:

With each Test that Sachin Tendulkar plays, a new record is set more often than not. And so it is with the ongoing Test against England at Nottingham which has become the 100th match for the master-blaster, away from home soil.

With 179 Tests for the country, Sachin is already the most-capped player in the longest format of the game. The milestone reached on Friday becomes another feather in his cap as he searches for his highly anticipated 100th international century.

Sachin averages 56.48 in all matches played outside India and his highest individual score of 248* also came against Bangladesh in Dhaka. 29 of his 51 Test centuries have been scored at international venues with 8191 runs to boot.

On Saturday, Tim Bresnan got rid of a well-set VVS Laxman to raise hopes once again of a possible century from the next man in. The question then remains, will Sachin get his 100th international 100 in his 100th away Test match? Click Live Scorecard to find out.
