I know all of you there feel the same but hate to admit it, and some of you even want me headless. Yes, I am happy that Sachin has finally scored his hundredth hundred. It was a long wait. No, it was looonnngg wait. Going by his standards, 33 innings without a century are far too much.
After those anxious moments when he was in his nineties, I celebrated along with every member of my team once he got there. We were ecstatic and relieved! We are proud of the feat, after all nobody has ever scored a century of century, but are we as proud of how he got it? Hold your daggers till I finish.
I see the point that some of you would want to make against my opinion that had he failed to score today, the media would have lambasted him for failing against a small team like Bangladesh. Perhaps! A century is a century as the cricket pundits say and the statisticians jot down, but for a player as big as Tendulkar, a failure against a minnow is as big as his success against a bigger team and the vice versa. So had this celebrated century come against Australia, it would have become legendary.
