Mumbai: West Indian fast bowler Ravi Rampaul, who broke millions of hearts by dismissing Sachin Tendulkar just six short of his 100th international century, said getting the wicket of the Indian batting maestro was special and the feat was achieved with some good planning.
"Leading up to this morning, the coach and I had a chat during warm-ups about how I am going to bowl at him. Best way is to get close to the wicket and angle the ball away from him and he nicks it. It's a good feeling. The ball bounced a lot. He was batting out of his crease to get the ball a little fuller. I realised that and altered my length. It was just a right ball at the right time," said Rampaul.
Tendulkar was caught at second slip by West Indian captain Darren Sammy while attempting an off-side shot off Rampaul on the fourth day of the third cricket Test at the Wankhede Stadium here on Friday.
