Sachin Tendulkar has said that the long wait for his 100th international century was disappointing, as he left no stone unturned to make that happen.

The Little Master is now preparing for the IPL 6, and in a rare spectacle, he and Ricky Ponting found themselves training for the same team with the former Australian captain glued to the batting grind of his Mumbai Indians team-mate ahead of their side's IPL campaign.

Tendulkar, who had struggled in the recent home Test series against England and Australia, had a two-hour long batting stint at the National Cricket Academy here with captain Ponting keeping a close watch on him ahead of MI's IPL campaign opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 4.

Tendulkar spent the longest time at the nets while Ponting, Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik batted for under 45 minutes.
