Dhaka - Sachin Tendulkar's long-awaited 100th international century wasn't enough to prevent Bangladesh from beating India by five wickets in the Asia Cup on Friday.

Tendulkar scored his first century in a year, an opener's innings of 114, but India's 289-5 was overcome by Bangladesh with four balls to spare.

Opener Tamim Iqbal scored 70, and Jahurul Islam and Nasir Hossain made 53 and 54 respectively to spearhead Bangladesh to 293-5 in 49.2 overs at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Shakib Al Hasan contributed 49 and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim added 46 not out from only 25 balls.

For India, Praveen Kumar had the best figures of 3-56.
