46) 200 not out (226 minutes, 147 balls, 25 fours, 3 sixes, strike rate 136.05) in the second innings v South Africa at Gwalior on February 24, 2010: Brief score (India 401 -3/50 and South Africa 248/42.5), India won by 153 runs. Tendulkar produced a dazzling display of top-class stroke play to become the first man to score a double-century in a one-day international, and sealed India's series victory. He needed just 147 balls, having reached his 46th one-day ton (to go with 47 in Tests) and he collected 25 fours and three sixes. From the outset, he looked on course for something special and throughout his innings, his placement of shots were so perfect and timing so perfect that South Africa were blown away. Needles to say, he bagged the Man of the Match award for this special effort.
47) 120 (170 minutes, 115 balls, 10 fours, 5 sixes, strike rate 104.34) in the second innings v England at Bangalore on February 27, 2011: Brief score (India 338/49.5 and England 338-8/50), match tied. Even by Tendulkar's matchless standards, his was a vintage performance, and a masterful example of how to pace an innings. In all he stroked ten fours and five sixes in what was, somewhat curiously, his first one-day hundred against England for nine years. He guided India to 236 for three in the 39th over when he got out which set then what looked like a winning score. But England's skipper Andrew Strauss made superb 158 as match ended in a nail-biting tie.
48) 111 (184 minutes, 101 balls, 8 fours, 3 sixes, strike rate 109.90) in the first innings v South Africa at Nagpur on March 12, 2011: (India 296/48.4 and England 300-7/49.4), India lost by three wickets. Tendulkar oozed class during the course of his 99th ton in international cricket. There was not a single shot that looked risky and yet he played all the shots, even hooked a six, a shot that he doesn't play too often these days. He faced just 20 balls in the first ten overs but raced to 35, and his fifty came in 333 deliveries. India were 267 for two in the 40th over when he got out and there after lost the way to be restricted to under 300 score to be all down with as many as ten balls remaining! India lost the way and lost the game.
49) 114 (147 balls, 12 fours, 1 six, strike rate 77.55) in the first innings v Bangladesh at Mirpur on March 16, 2012: After waiting one year and four days, Sachin finally achieved the coveted landmark of 100 international tons with a single to square leg off Shakib Al Hasan. He was finally caught by wicket keeper Mushfiqur Rahim off Mashrafe Mortaza as he tried to drive a slower delivery through the off side. The monkey was finally off his back.
