The wait for Sachin Tendulkar’s 100th international century has been the most discussed and has been the most awaited. Every time the batting legend went on to bat, everyone hoped and prayed that he scored his 100th ton.

England batting coach Graham Gooch has expressed confidence that captain Andrew Strauss will be able to turn things around with the bat in the upcoming matches.
England lost the opening Test against Sri Lanka at Galle by 75 runs and are on the verge of losing their No. 1 spot in ICC Test rankings if they fail to win the second and final Test at Colombo.
Strauss has now gone 23 innings without adding to his 19 Test centuries, averaging a poor 28.52, and has managed just one three-figure knock in his last 48 innings.
“If you get defeats you're going to get tough questions. As far as I'm concerned, Andrew Strauss is the best guy to captain England at the moment and he and Alastair Cook are the best opening batsmen in the

Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal took a dig at India's cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar right in front of the media, after his side's crushing loss against the World Champions in the recently concluded Asia Cup.
Ajmal said Tendulkar had reached the end of his career, yet was treated as a legend. He said, " Unka toh aakhari time chal raha hai."
