God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar will still be great even if he misses 100th ton: Steve Waugh

Sachin Tendulkar
Melbourne, Feb 7 (TruthDive): Australian great and former skipper, Steve Waugh has said that the quality in Sachin Tendulkar’s batting will never diminish even if he does not score his much awaited 100th international century.

“I think it’(s a huge statistic and India is obsessed by stats. The whole country wants him to get his one hundredth (100) so maybe that’s where the real pressure is coming from.

“It will be nice if he could get it down the road, but if he doesn’t get it I certainly won’t think any less of him as a player,” Waugh said. Waugh compared Tendulkar’s failure to score his hundredth 100 till today with Don Bradman, who retired with an average of 99.94. He also said it may be possible that Tendulkar does not have it in his destiny to score that elusive hundred but felt it is highly unlikely.

“He’s a great player. You know Bradman wasn’t meant to average 100, maybe Sachin Tendulkar is not meant to get a hundredth century. But I think he’ll get it pretty shortly,” Waugh was quoted as saying by ‘The Australian’.

Tendulkar, stranded on 99 international centuries since March last year, moved in the vicinity of 80s in the current test series against Australia. With cricketing fans across the globe waiting for Sachin’s elusive hundred, the Australian team will do everything to prolong the Indian great’s agonising wait for his 100th international century.

Tendulkar is a great player and the ton would only be another feather in his cap. Cricket experts and former players feel that Tendulkar’s 100 is only a matter of time. They demand patience from Indian fans and media. India’s iconic batsman Sachin Tendulkar would soon score his landmark and much-awaited 100th international ton.

The records speak his greatness in the game of cricket and seem like the records are not only unbreakable until but forever. Until we could finish his extensive list of records SachinTendulkar is once again ready to hit another milestone. This time it’s the amazing feat of Sachin Tendulkar’s 100th Century that’s round the corner.
