Sachin misses out again on his 100th hundred

Arrhh! he missed it again! Twice!!!

Everything was aligned
  • No pressure test with India already up 2:Zip in the 3 match series
  • Perfect conditions for batting
  • Huge run chase
  • Home conditions
  • Thousands of cheering fans
He came close, but could not get past the nervous nineties in the first innings. The cricket gods even gave him a second chance, after the pitch surprising started to spin on the 5th morning and WI collapsed in their second effort to give India a whiff of victory. All nicely set up to for Sachin to blast a ton and take India to victory with his 100th International hundred.. But it was't to be. Sachin missed, getting out early to a delivery that stopped on him. And India could not close out the win despite useful contributions from a number of other players. 

Australia, here we come...
