Master batsman Sachin Tendulkar set a world record for most centuries in Test cricket as India ended the opening day in the second Test against Sri Lanka at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi, on Saturday in a strong position.

Playing his 125th Test, Tendulkar, who was unbeaten on 100 at close, registered his 35th Test century to surpass compatriot Sunil Gavaskar's long-standing record of 34 Test centuries.

His last century was the 248 not out against Bangladesh at Dhaka in December 2004.

Join us in congratulating the 32-year-old batting genius.
