The big business icon of the country, Mukesh Ambani has recently hosted a huge party on Monday at his residence, Antilia, here to celebrate master blaster Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s century of centuries in international cricket.
Huge number of Bollywood celebrities was also present in the party and leaders from political parties were also there.
Sachin Tendulkar’s colleague’s former captain Sourav Ganguly and Anil Kumble were also present.
Meanwhile, Tendulkar, who has scored more than 15,000 runs in Tests and more than 18,000 runs in ODIs (one day internationals), is now the only batsman in the world to score 100 international hundreds in Cricket.
Sachin had achieved this milestone during recent Asia Cup ODI match, when India was playing against Bangladesh at Mirpur on March 16. Though, India lost the match by 5 wickets.
Sachin Tendulkar made his first cricket appearance against Pakistan in 1989, and so far the cricketer has scored around 34,000 international runs in both the formats of the game and scored his 100th century against Bangladesh this month to cement his place as statistically the greatest batsman.
While talking to media at a function in Mumbai, Tendulkar said, “I was in no hurry to retire and refused to rule himself out of the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.”
Earlier, India won the ICC World Cup 2011 at home last April after a gap of 28 years and will defend their title when the next edition is held in New Zealand and Australia in early 2015.
