Sachin Tendulkar will be showered with 100 gold coins by the Mumbai Cricket Association if he completes his much-awaited 100th international century during the third and final Test match between India and West Indies commencing November 22 at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.


"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 on Saturday.

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 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.
