Kolkata: Sachin Tendulkar missed out on his 100th ton yet again, but West Indies coach Ottis Gibson said they were not doing anything special to prevent him from reaching the milestone. It could instead be the heavy load of fans' expectations which is getting the better of the Indian batsman.
Tendulkar scored 38 in India's first innings on Monday and Gibson hoped that the Indian would not get to the magic mark in this series against them.
"We did not have any special plan but just to bowl line and length. Looking at Sachin, it makes me feel that the expectancy on Indian people is creating much pressure on him," Gibson said after the opening day's play.
