New Delhi: Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar released a book commemorating his 100th international century titled Sachin - A Tribute To The Legend, in Lucknow on Tuesday.

Tendulkar, flanked by Mumbai Indians coach Robin Singh and captain Harbhajan Singh, expressed his gratitude after releasing the book.
The book is a collection of all the published reports of all the matches, in which Tendulkar scored his 100 international centuries. It also has some of his rare pictures and a range of interesting statistics.
Another book featuring the statistical peaks scaled by Tendulkar during his glorious international career, is 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.
