Little master back in action

Sachin Tendulkar's imperious run of form continued with bat he slammed yet another hundred for Lashings World XI in a 35-over cricket match against Sutton Valence School.

Tendulkar hit 105, his fourth century in five innings since he joined the celebrity club last month, to guide Lashings to a comprehensive 70-run victory in the match staged Thursday at Kent.

His India and Mumbai mate Ajit Agarkar also wielded the willow with aplomb, making 54 and helping Lashings to 254 for 6 in 35 overs.

Michael Coles (3/65) and Simon Higgins (2/47) took the wickets for Sutton.

Sutton's reply was shaped up by Ben Price who made 51 and Martin Taplin (27). But with Clare Connor accounting for five of the wickets for 24 runs and Sophie Simmonds picking 3 for 52, it was always beyond the school boys to put it across the star-studded rival line-up.
