Mumbai: Senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar on Sunday revealed that it was India's former coach John Wright who had first inspired him to score 100 international centuries.
"I remember a long time ago, in the 2003 World Cup (in South Africa), John Wright had told me 'you should become the first player to score 100 international hundreds'. We used to have many chats and in one of them he said this."
"He (probably) told that just to push me. The coach's job is to give the player that push and probably John was doing the same," Tendulkar said at an interactive media session on Sunday.
