100 is just another number, says Sachin

Kolkata, Nov 18: Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar said he is neither concerned nor concentrating on his 100th international hundred, as he has an opportunity to create history and reach another milestone on his home ground Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai when India take on West Indies in the third and final Test match starting on November 22.

"I am not thinking about that. I feel it (100 hundreds) is just a number. I am thinking about playing good cricket. I am enjoying my game," said Tendulkar.

He came close to the milestone thrice when he scored 85 in the World Cup semifinal against Pakistan, 91 in the Oval Test against England in August and 76 in the first Test of the ongoing series against the West Indies in New Delhi.

"I know everyone's talking and thinking about my 100th century. I want to be relaxed and let cricket decide its own course. I am not rushing into anything; just concentrating my normal game," Tendulkar told MiD DAY.

Media is creating a lot of hype about Tendulkar's 100th ton but Tendulkar denied that he is under pressure to score the century, "I'm under no pressure, but I want to say something: When I got my 90th international century, nobody said anything. Even before my 99th century, nobody said anything, so why now? I don't understand," he said.
