India's Sachin Tendulkar was again frustrated in his quest for an unprecedented 100th international century after falling for just one against England on the first day of the third Test at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Wednesday.

'The Little Master's' 51 Test centuries and 48 in one-day internationals are both world records and the 38-year-old number four received, as has been the case all series, a standing ovation when he walked to the crease in what could well be his last tour of England.

He then took a single off James Anderson after playing and missing at the fast-medium bowler.

But his eight-ball innings ended when, pushing away from his body and with an angled bat against a good length delivery from Stuart Broad, he edged to third slip where Anderson held the catch.

India, who lost the toss, were then 60 for three.

Tendulkar's previous scores this series were 34 and 12 in a 196-run first Test defeat at Lord's and 16 and 56 in the 319-run second Test reverse at Trent Bridge which left India 2-0 down in this four-match series.

That meant his tally to date for a series where India have yet to make 300 now stood at a modest 119 runs at an average of 23.8.
