Bangalore, Sep 6: Sachin Tendulkar holds every possible record in international cricket. He is set to add one more, where no cricketer has ever reached. The historic landmark of 200 Test caps beckons Master Blaster. However, there is one unfulfilled record for the Mumbai man.

That missing stat from Tendulkar's CV will be a Test hundred in Zimbabwe. Tendulkar, 40, has not managed to score a century in the five-day format in Zimbabwe. He has 51 three-figure scores but none constructed in Zimbabwe.

Sachin Tendulkar's missing Test record

In his four Tests in Zimbabwe, his highest score is 74. With India unlikely to travel to that country for Test cricket in the near future, he will have to leave the game without that record.

Tendulkar visited Zimbabwe on three tours in 1992, 1998 and 2001. In 7 innings, his best was 74 in Bulawayo in June, 2001.

Tendulkar, however, has scored a Test hundred against Zimbabwe in India. He is one of the few batsmen in history to register Test tons against all other nations.

What Tendulkar could not achieve, former India captain Rahul Dravid has done it. He is the only batsman to have scored a Test hundred in all 10 Test playing countries.

In 198 Tests, Tendulkar has amassed 15,837 runs with 51 centuries. He is all set to play his 200th Test against West Indies in November. The venue might be his home ground, Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. West Indies will face India in a two-Test series.
