Sachin Tendulkar dedicated his 41st Test century that powered India's sensational victory against England to Mumbaikars recovering after the terror attacks and hoped his ton will finally bring a smile on their faces.

Best wishes poured in from all over the world and surfers on congratulated Team India and felt that Sachin played the role of sheet anchor while guiding India to the improbable victory over England.

Nigel D Silva From Mumbai says Sachin's invincible performance captures the spirit of India. We will never bow down to anyone and will always rise higher than any situation demands. We had and always will have the never- say- die attitude. Let this be a warning to all those who take India lightly that they can do so at their own doom and peril.

Rajni Kant from New Delhi was all praise for Sachin Tendulkar and believed his century would helped heal the wounds left by terrorists during Mumbai siege. Congratulating the master blaster for his century, Kasi Reddy from Bangalore said this is one of best Test innings played by an Indian. This team shows signs of consistency which was lacking in the earlier team.

An excited Piush Agarwal from Gurgaon believes that Sachin is in top form and India's chances of winning the next World Cup in 2011 is a very real possibility.

Vikram P from the USA rates Sachin Tendulkar's unbeaten ton as his best till date. Ashwani Sharma from Bahrain also agrees that Sachin's century against England was by far the best.

Abhishek from New Delhi was ecstatic about the fact that Sachin had given a fitting reply to all those critics who insisted that he doesn't perform under pressure by letting his bat do the talking when the team needed it the most. He felt that Sachin's innings was a mixture of aggression and composure.

A self-proclaimed Sachin fan, Amit Basu from Australia believes that master blaster's knock was a study in perfect timing. He said, it reminded him of younger Sachin during early nineties. His off drive, backfoot punch and the straight half volley on a fifth day pitch was just vintage Tendulkar.
