Year 2008

38th century: Sachin started the new year on a high Down Under. During the second Test against Australia in Sydney, Sachin made an unbeaten 154 runs as his 38th Test century. However, some umpiring blunders gave Australian an edge over the Indians in the match that was well in visitors' grasp.

39th century: After a forgettable Sydney Test, India moved to Adelaide for the third Test. Sachin carried his form to the Adelaide Oval and made 154 runs to get his 39th Test ton, which was also his 80th international hundred. The match ended in a draw.

40th century: Sachin got his 40th ton at Nagpur during the fourth Test against Australia. The four-match series was aready in India's pocket, but Sachin's innings of 109 runs helped India put up a good total. India won the match by 172 runs and clinched the series 2-0 to lift the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. During the same series, Sachin surpassed Brian Lara's record of maximum Test runs. It came during the second Test at Mohali.

41st century: Many called this knock as Sachin's one of the best Test knocks. After condemnable terror attacks on Mumbai, India played England in Chennai. And the Mumbaikar made that match a historic one. If Virender Sehwag set the stage, Sachin along with Yuvraj Singh chased the total with an hour to spare for the close of the match. He made unbeaten 103 runs and dedicated his 41st ton to all his countrymen.

Year 2009

42nd century: It came at a place which proved to be Indian batting's graveyard in 2002-03. India went to New Zealand this year after that debacle tour. It was tipped to be one of the toughest tour as nobody knew how the conditions were.

After Indian pacers ripped the Kiwi batting apart in the first Test at Hamilton, Sachin got down to his task and slammed 160 runs for his 42nd ton. Most importantly, his knock backed by lethal bowling gave India a win in New Zealand after a gap of 33 years.

43rd Test century: Sachin celebrated his 20 years in Test cricket with an unbeaten 100 runs in the second innings of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Ahmedabad in December 2009. There were seven centuries scored in that match. Failing to score in the first innings, Sachin scored a subdued 298-ball 100 runs in the second.

Year 2010:

44th Test century:
The master batsman started the new year with another century. Though against the minnows, his 44th century came under testing circumstances. India, who played their first Test of the year against Bangladesh in January, were heavily let down by their batsmen in the first innings in Chittagong. Out of 243 runs, Sachin scored 105 and saved India blushes. While wickets were tumbling from one end, Sachin at the other end dig deep and kept the battle on. He was adjudged 'man of the match' for his fighting knock.

45th Test century:In the second Test of the two-match series against Bangladesh, Sachin slammed another ton. As compared to the hundred scored in the first Test, this one was a more relaxed one. During the process, he had a 200-run plus with Rahul Dravid for the third wicket.

46th Test century:Sachin slammed 46th hundred of his Test career on the fourth day of the first Test against South Africa in Nagpur.

His fourth century against the Proteas was also his first at home against them.

In reply to South Africa's 558 runs, India were bundled out for 233 runs. South Africa enforced follow-on and picked top four wickets. Sachin rose to the occasion and hit his 46th ton. Unfortunately, his resistance ended soon after his ton as Paul Harris deceived him with his spin for 100 runs. However his ton went in vain as India slumped to an embarrassing defeat by an innings and six runs

47th Test century: Hurt by the Nagpur sting, India reached Kolkata for the second Test. After Indian bowlers wrapped up the South African innings for 296, Sachin along with Sehwag got down to the batting business. He made his 47th Test ton, his fifth against the visitors. Having played four Tests so far in 2010, Sachin has made centuries in each of them.

48th Test century: Sachin Tendulkar once again came to his country's rescue and raised hopes of salvaging the second Test. Tendulkar struck his 48th Test century and Suresh Raina notched up a fifty on the third day of the Test.
