Sachin Tendulkar was left stranded on 99 international hundreds after falling for 12 in India's second innings in the first Test against England at Lord's today.

Sachin Tendulkar was left stranded on 99 international hundreds after falling for 12 in India's second innings in the first Test against England at Lord's on Monday.

Tendulkar, whose 51 Test hundreds and 48 in one-day internationals are both world records, was lbw to England paceman James Anderson to end a scratchy 85 minute innings where he faced 68 balls and struck just the one boundary.

His exit, in what could be the 38-year-old's last Test at Lord's, left Tendulkar with a top score in nine innings at the 'home of cricket' of just 37, made four years ago.

Both Australia's Ricky Ponting and now retired West Indies star Brian Lara, the other two great batsmen of the last 20 years, have also failed to make a Test century at Lord's.
