Kolkata, Dec 3: Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly on Monday said that he is hopeful of Sachin Tendulkar scoring a century at Eden Gardens in the third Test against England, starting December 5.

Having said that Sachin is just one innings short of striking form earlier, the prince of Kolkata, hopes that the master blaster scores a century at Eden Gardens.

Hope Sachin scores a ton at Eden:Ganguly

Tendulkar needs just one good innings: Ganguly

"Many stories are being written about the match. I wish all the luck to Sachin. I hope he scores a ton at Eden Gardens."

Following Sachin Tendulkar's poor form, talks on his retirement have been making rounds as former Indian cricketers have come to Tendulkar's rescue, defending the master.

Sachin Tendulkar averages 22.83 in the 7 Tests he has played in 2012, with a tally of 274 while he has failed to cross 30 runs in the last 10 innings, which raises doubts about his form and ability to continue.

Team India is banking heavily on the master blaster as the team already lacks experience especially after Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman's retirement.

After a humiliating 10-wicket-loss to England at Mumbai, India play England at Eden Gardens, in the third Test which happens to be another interesting match, as the series is levelled 1-1.

Talking about India's chances, Ganguly said that the hosts have all the chances of winning the series.

"The series is levelled 1-1 but I hope India will win the series convincingly," he said.
