    Haha, same. Once he hit 80 I basically gave up.

    Haha, I just read the headline on BBC which was something like "Brilliant Tendulkar leads India to victory" and thought "haha, unlucky Cribb."

    Tendulkar had the opportunity to do exactly the same 2 ball previously but picked out long on on the bounce.

    To add to Tendulkar's 45 ODI hundreds, this is his 18th score in the 90s. (Six of them in 2007, of course).

    To be fair Karthick had no fielders in the deep to worry about, Sri Lanka were clearly determined to stop Sachin getting a hundred. Would not really blame Karthick though, they put the field up so he it over it. Sachin really should have taken the powerplay but overall he was unlucky not to get a hundred, did not get much of the strike for large periods, scored at a good rate.

    True.

    If it were me, I'd be disappointed not to reach the 100, but I'd far rather score 96* in a victory than 175 in a defeat.

    Woo! India won, and with ease. Ishant was up in the 140s once more today - although his ODI bowling still needs serious work, that is a good sign. Ashish Nehra helped pull the game back in the early overs and is proving a useful ODI asset. Jadeja was of course the star - he may be raw, but I feel that, like Yuvraj Singh, he may just about come very good in the end. We must not underrate the performance of Sehwag and Harbhajan with the ball either, as they helped wrestle the initiative away from Sri Lanka in the second powerplay onwards. Harbhajan has been a star in recent times and he continues along those lines and I have (along with most people, I'm sure) thought for a long time that Sehwag is a good off spinner who gets a fair bit of drift and turn - he should bowl more in Test cricket, on that note.

    The batsmen did their thing too, but that is really, to be expected.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Yeah and I am sure Sachin would as well, he obviously values his landmarks and I have no doubt that he really wants to make 100 international centuries. but he is no way a selfish player.

    Dinesh Karthik might well have appeared in his last international game.

    Karthik's expression in the pic is priceless. Just like a kid caught doing something he shouldn't.
