100th century will fetch Sachin 100 gold coins from MCA

"MCA President Vilasrao Deshmukh has decided that the assoiciation should give Tendulkar a 100 gold coins if he completed the 100th international century at his home ground," Nitin Dalal, Joint Secretary of MCA, said today.

The Cricket Association of Bengal had promised to give the champion batsman 100 gold coins if he achieved the unprecedented feat in the second Test at the Eden Gardens, which concluded on November 17, Dalal pointed out.

However, Tendulkar could not reach the coveted landmark in Kolkata and has the chance to achieve it in his home town here in Mumbai.

His last international hundred was made during the World Cup held between February and April this year, against South Africa at Nagpur on March 12.
