In a record in the constituency, 86.3 per cent polling was registered in the crucial Piravom bypoll in Ernakulam district on Saturday, with both the Congress and Communist Party of India (Marxist)-led fronts hoping the heavy turnout augurs well for their respective groups.
As per final figures released by the Election Commission, 86.3 per cent of voters of 1.83 lakh electorate had exercised their franchise by 5 p.m. when polling came to a close.
In 1987, Piravom constituency had registered a record turnout of 85.45 per cent. Gopi Kottamurikkal of CPI(M) had won the Assembly polls then.
The highest turnout this time was 89.5 per cent in Maneed while the lowest was at Elanji — 82.5 per cent.
United Democratic Front candidate Anoop Thomas and his Left Democratic Front rival M.J. Jacob were among the early voters.

Sachin Tendulkar finally hits 100th international century for India

The wait is finally over. Sachin Tendulkar on Friday finally reached the milestone of 100th international century. 

It was during 2011 World Cup match against South Africa that Tendulkar hit his 99th international ton. But it has been 33 innings since then and the icon has repeatedly failed to cross that landmark.

He has played in 11 Tests over the last year and scored 778 runs with a highest score of 94. And he's made 301 runs at an average of 27.36 from the 11 ODIs.
Tendulkar's numbers in Tests and ODIs since his 111 against the Proteas in the World Cup on March 12, 2011:
         Matches           Innings                Runs        Avg              Highest
Tests    11                    21                    778         37.04            94
ODIs    11                    11                    301         27.36            85
The milestone was appearing to weigh the Master Blaster down. But Team India skipper M.S. Dhoni dismissed such notions ahead of the team's first Asia Cup tie against Sri Lanka on Tuesday. "These are small things, not a worry. He is an asset to the team,"
Tendulkar has come close a few times, but it was not to be. He seemed to be feeling the heat and took to the nets on Wednesday despite it being optional in an effort to sort out his knicks. Only three Indian cricketers turned up and Sachin was one of them.
And all the hard seems to have paid off.
