Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, the cricket God of India scored his 50th test century against South Africa. Graeme  Smith congratulated Tendulkar. Smith said scoring under pressure is a feather in Tendulkar’s cap, “The guy has scored 50 Test hundreds so it’s a bit hard to rate this one. He’s scored a few hundreds before I can even remember. Under pressure, being able to score runs is a feather in his cap. I was a bit surprised that he made life for us so easy this morning. I think MS needs credit for the partnership as well… If he didn’t hang around, Sachin wouldn’t have got his 50th. That partnership in general was the one time that they really stood up in the game.”

Bollywood icons like Amitabh Bachchan , Lata Mangeshkar and sports star Leander Paes congratulated  Sachin for his achievements and new standards in setting up records.

Paes said that sachin’s  performance and longevity is phenomenal. He said “A phenomenal achievement. It’s fantastic… An awesome feat. He is really God-gifted. I really respect the longevity of his performance… Nobody expected Sunil Gavaskar’s record of 34 Test hundreds to be broken… Sachin has not only got past him but also set new standards.”
