I am not god, I am Sachin Tendulkar” – said the India cricketer on his 100th international century, which he described as the “toughest” of his career.
“Yes, I have to be honest. I am human and I have emotions so I was frustrated. It does play on your mind,” Tendulkar told reporters at the post-match press conference after India lost by 5 wickets.
It took Sachin 36 balls to go from 80 to 100 on Friday and his 114-run knock came off 147 deliveries.
“The hundred was not the only thing on my mind. I was thinking about getting a good total for the team. When I looked at the scoreboard, I was looking at the run-rate and what we needed to do, I was avoiding looking at my personal score,” he said.
“I was not looking at the scoreboard. I just took it one ball at a time and looked to do it for the team. Even after completing my century, my job was not done.”
