Sachin Tendulkar: Welcome century ahead of England series

Sky Bet

Sachin Tendulkar played his way into form ahead of the forthcoming Test series against England with a score of 137 for Mumbai on day one of their Ranji Trophy match with Railways.

The 39-year-old, the world's leading run-scorer in both Test and one-day cricket, cracked three sixes and 21 fours in his 136-ball knock.

It was Tendulkar's 295th three-figure score in first-class cricket and he will be hoping to transfer his form into the Test arena, where he has failed to score a century since making 146 against South Africa in Cape Town in January 2011.

Tendulkar, whose last Ranji appearance was in 2009, put on 200 runs for the fourth wicket with Test-hopeful Ajinkya Rahane (105 not out) to help Mumbai post 344-4 in their first innings at stumps at the Wankhede Stadium.

The four-Test series against England starts in Ahmedabad on November 15.
