Sachin Tendulkar's 100 Hundreds: Videos Part 1 - 1990-1994

Over the past few months, I have been collecting videos of Sachin Tendulkar's 100 international hundreds. I started doing this the day after he reached his 100th hundred in Dhaka in March this year. Videos of Tendulkar's centuries have plentiful, and I have found about 85 of them. The quality varies, as does the length. In some cases, such as his 35th Test hundred against Sri Lanka at Delhi in 2005, the video begins with him in the 90s. Others are more conventional highlights clips.

Tendulkar's 100 hundreds have come at 51 different grounds. He made 7 centuries at the Sharjah stadium. Among cities, he made 10 centuries in Colombo, 7 in Sharjah, 6 in Nagpur, 5 in Dhaka and 4 in Sydney. He made at least one international hundred in each of his 23 years except 1989 and 1991. His most prolific years have been 1998 (12), 1996, 1999 and 2010 (8) and 2001 (7).

From January 1, 1996 to December 31st 2002, Tendulkar made 52 international hundreds.

From January 1, 2007 to December 31st 2010, Tendulkar made 21 international hundreds, and reached 90 a further 10 times.

In his international career till date, he has been dismissed in the 90s 28 times, twice as often as the next most frequent 90s man - Rahul Dravid (14).

In order to make it easy to view, I have divided these videos into 10 parts. I list the centuries for which videos are not available as well. If you find these videos on a public forum, please do share the link in a comment. I would like to complete the collection if I can.
