ALL cricketing eyes will be on Lord’s over the next few days to see if one of the game’s legends, Sachin Tendulkar, can become the first player to reach 100 international centuries.
He stands on 99 in Tests and all one-dayers as he prepares for the First Test (of four) as England set out to try to usurp India as the world’s leading-ranked Test team.
Tendulkar has never had a century at Lord’s or, remarkably, even a half-century and he will be aiming to correct that record on what will be his final appearance there.
The ‘Little Master’ already has a century against England this year having made 120 in the World Cup.
Stuart Broad is set to get the nod ahead of Tim Bresnan.
