India’s batting star Sachin Tendulkar said that he is not concentrating on the impending 100th international hundred, as he has an opportunity to create history on his home ground Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai when India take on West Indies in the third and final Test match starting 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.
Tendulkar missed out on the milestone by 26 runs in the second innings of the first Test match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi. Also, in the second innings, Tendulkar fell to Devendra Bishoo after reaching a fluent 38.
"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 was quoted by MiD DAY.
The little master 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.
