'Sachin in the same league with Bradman'

Hamilton: Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar is in the same league with Don Bradman, said India's former coach John Wright. He also predicted that Sachin will become the first cricketer in the world to hit 100 international centuries.

Wright said he expects Tendulkar to continue at least till the 2011 World Cup and retire only when he desires.

"I always felt he is in the same line as Bradman and he has the potential to possibly get a 100 international hundreds combining Tests and One dayers," said Wright, who had a successful five-year stint with the Indian team.

"To do something like that would be truly Bradmanesque," the former New Zealand captain told NDTV.

Incidentally, Bradman himself found some similarity between his own and Tendulkar's batting.

Tendulkar will turn 36 on April 24 but Wright said going by form -- the Mumbaikar hit a sublime 163 off 133 balls before retiring hurt in the third India-New Zealand ODI at Christchurch -- he expects the Indian to continue tormenting the bowlers.
