The notable thing about Tendulkar’s 39th Test hundred was how he looked to be in a zone of his own. Not one other batsman looked half as much in command as him, which was a bit surprising on what is considered, at least as of now, to be a batting strip.

None of these things bothered Tendulkar, as he carved up his hundred in style. Beginning with a cracking straight drive, he played all the shots in his armoury. When he does that, the opposition can only watch and fetch the ball.

Please explain the emboldened parts to me.

To be in a zone of his own = is outstanding and superior to the other players.

batting strip = a ground that is most suited to good batting

carved up his hundred = made his hundred runs

in his armoury = items or qualities that can be used to good effect in a particular situation, in this case his batting ability.
