An expat's view: politics, economics and life in Italy, Britain and other places.

Just heard that Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar has completed his 100th international century, a feat so remarkable it is hard to comprehend.
Tendulkar has scored more than 15,000 test runs, 2,000 more than the second on the list, Rahul Dravid, who has just retired. Tendulkar has scored 6,500 runs more than the highest ranked England player, Graham Gooch, who retired 17 years ago.
He also easily tops the One Day Internationals batting list with over 18,000 runs and once scored 200 not out in a one day match.
I can't imagine Tendulkar's feat ever being repeated, although I would have said it was impossible in the first place.
