Rohit Sharma is hoping that Sachin Tendulkar gets his much-awaited 100th international century in the first Test against Australia as the anticipation has now become unbearable.

The first Test starts December 26 and Sharma is keeping his fingers crossed for a Tendulkar hundred in the match. Should Sachin Tendulkar be given the Bharat Ratna? Click here

"I think it's a great place for him to do it... the only thing we want to see, me and my team-mates, all over the country, all the Indians, we don't want to wait for too long. It's been a while and (we hope) he gets it in the first game itself," Sharma said.

Tendulkar's 100th international hundred has kept his fans in animated suspense for the last nine months after he hit his 99th century, against South Africa during the World Cup in Nagpur in March.

Since then, Tendulkar has turned out in seven Test matches and entered into 90s on no less than three occasions yet the realisation of that monumental century has remained elusive.
