Twitter was flooded with tributes for Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday. It was on August 14, 1990, that the Master Blaster scored the first of his 100 international centuries. Tendulkar amassed a majestic 119* to save the game for India.

Tendulkar eventually went on to become one of the greats of the sport. In an illustrious career, Tendulkar amassed 100 international centuries while donning the India jersey in 200 Tests, 463 ODIs and a solitary T20I. It all started from a young ‘Little Master’ hogging the headlines in Manchester by scoring his maiden ton 30 years ago.

Many tweets mentioning the second Test between England and Pakistan also surfaced on Twitter. Pakistan, aiming to level the series after suffering a defeat in the first Test, suffered two early blows in the form of Shan Masood and skipper Azhar Ali.  Many fans bashed Azhar Ali for yet another poor outing with the bat. Many even insisted him to step down from the captaincy duties after disappointing performances with the willow. Meanwhile, many people also lauded veteran James Anderson for his impressive spell.

Wishes also poured in for former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar, who celebrated his 45th birthday on August 13th. The Rawalpindi Express, known for his scintillating pace, donned the Pakistan jersey in 46 Tests, 163 ODIs, and 15 T20Is, scalping over 400 international wickets. He also holds the record for the fastest ball bowled in the history of cricket. He had bowled a delivery at 161.3 km/h (100.23 mph) against England in the 2003 World Cup.
