Australian fast bowling legend McGrath predicted that India’s Sachin Tendulkar will remain stranded on 99 international centuries at least for the rest of the summer.
McGrath said the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), which will be hosting its 100th international Test, provides Tendulkar the perfect opportunity to achieve the milestone.
“Well the scene is set, there’s no doubt about that, Sachin’s a class player and to be sitting on 99 (international) hundreds is incredible, ” McGrath said.
“But I’m tipping our boys will hold him back for another few Tests. It would be nice to see Sachin get his 100th hundred first Test in the next series.”
Many pundits are hoping Tendulkar can bring up his landmark ton in Sydney, where he holds a remarkable record of success.
Tendulkar scored his 99th international century in a World Cup group stage match March 12 against South Africa.
