Sachin Tendulkar has reached where no other man may reach again. At 7.36 pm Indian time, he pushed Dale Steyn through a heavily manned cover for four, bringing up his 50th Test hundred.
While it is a milestone to be celebrated, it is a job only half done in the Centurion Test, where India are hanging by a thread.
Tendulkar, playing his 175th Test, is on his fifth Test tour of South Africa and India have won just one match here, in 2006.
He has 11 hundreds against Australia, nine against Sri Lanka, seven against England, six against South Africa, five against Bangladesh, four against New Zealand, three each against West Indies and Zimbabwe and two against Pakistan.
