New Delhi: Apr 24, 2012

 

A book featuring the statistical peaks scaled by cricketer Sachin Tendulkar during his glorious international career, is all set to hit the stands.

 

Titled ‘Sachin A Hundred Hundreds Now’, the book has an introduction by former India captain Rahul Dravid and a foreword by the Tendulkar’s first coach Ramakant Achrekar.

 

The book talks about every hundred, every peak scaled by Tendulkar on his way to the top.

 

Alongside, the book captures glimpses of the fast changing world around Tendulkar, and the two sportsmen whose lives and achievements in some ways mirror the Little Master’s: world chess champion Viswanathan Anand and tennis superstar Leander Paes.

 

On March 16, Tendulkar created history by becoming the first cricketer to score 100 international centuries.

 

He achieved the feat during India’s Asia Cup match against Bangladesh at Mirpur near Dhaka.

 

Written by veteran sports writer V Krishnaswamy, the book contains 286 pages.

 

Born in Kolkata and brought up in Delhi, Krishnaswamy has been a sports writer and commentator for 30 years. He has attended the last Olympic Games besides seven Asian Games, five Commonwealth Games and numerous regional events. (PTI)
