    Thumbs up Let Sachin score 100th ton without pressure: Dhoni

    Sachin Tendulkar once again missed his much-awaited 100th international ton but Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday said the team was not affected by the impending record of the batting maestro.

    Tendulkar looked like finally achieving the feat on the fourth day of the first Test against the West Indies at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium but fell short by 24 runs, and Dhoni said the team was not perturbed by the veteran batsman not being able to do it.

    "We are not under pressure as a team. The media are putting pressure on him. Let him score his hundred and he will do at some point of time. He is pretty good at doing that and he will do it. Let him score the hundred without pressure," Dhoni said at the post-match press conference.

    If you are talking about the gentleman, expectations from him by the people has been high as (Mount) Everest. Since his second year in international cricket, he has been the star.

    "When he goes to a cricket field and scores 50, people say he had not scored runs and it has been like this each and every day.

    "And what we have seen is that any individual, when he reaches a milestone, he may take a little bit longer time than usual. But I think it's around the corner. We have to wait and see," Dhoni added.

    West Indies captain Darren Sammy said he would be happy for Tendulkar to score his 100th international ton but not against his side.

    As I have said, we admire Tendulkar, he is a great cricketer. But I would want Tendulkar to score his hundred against Australia. I would want to watch it and enjoy and not when playing against him," he said.

    What do we want to see......India winning or Sachin's hundred ? The day before I wa listening to one's comment and I quote When an Australian young boy comes home after a cricket game, his dad asks whether you win ? And in the same situation an Indian dad will ask How many runs you scored ?......And I would say thats our mentality, for long now this crap is holding us and it would be better if Sachin score his elusive hundred, the sooner the better. I mean no one wants an Indian win here, looking at the hype I am suggesting this. And I dont know how sane people handle this God thing, its stupidity. Cricket is a team game...Alas we dont realise it, otherwise Laxman and Dravid would have been in the headlines.....????
