Sachin gets bowled mostly to left-armers

Kolkata, Oct 31: Former India coach John Wright is optimistic about Sachin Tendulkar scoring a century or a double ton against England as the legendary cricketer can overcome the challenges.

John Wright, Team India's first foreign coach doesn't feel there is a need to press the panic button, since Sachin Tendulkar has been bowled a couple of times.

Instead observed the way he has been dismissed in the recent past, and also pointed out that he has not been bowled mostly by left-armers.

Wright was also not too concerned at the number of times Tendulkar was getting bowled of late.

"If I am not wrong, he gets bowled mostly to left-armers. I remember him getting bowled to West Indian Pedro Collins too a few years ago," Wright pointed out.

Though Wright had observed the master's batting and found out the weakness, he said it was just another phase, and was optimistic about Sachin scoring big against England, as there were no flaws in his technique.

"But, I don't think there is a technical flaw or a matter of serious concern. He is good enough to overcome these challenges," the New Zealander said.

He further said that the legendary cricketer who has been struggling to score big, would register a century or a double ton against the visiting sides England and Australia.

"I am really optimistic of Sachin scoring a century or even a double century. For, I am sure he should be acutely motivated to have a go at the Englishmen and the Australians later this year," he added.
