Century a tribute to Bradman: Tendulkar


Adelaide, Jan 25: Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday described his 80th international century, which came at the home ground of Sir Don Bradman, a tribute to the Australian legend.

Tendulkar hit an unbeaten 124 on day one of the fourth and final Test against Australia at the Adelaide Oval, which has not been a happy hunting ground for him.

"It hasn't been a great ground [for me], so I was determined to get a big one," he said.

"It also happens to be Sir Don's home ground so I think it was a tribute to Sir Don," he was quoted as saying by the Australian Associated Press.

Bradman, who died in February 2001, had in an interview once remarked that Tendulkar reminded him of how batted.

Tendulkar was also touched by the Adelaide crowd which congratulated him after the ton, his 39th in Test cricket.

"It's truly special and very overwhelming. Sometimes I need to look at the scoreboard to figure out if I'm batting 100 plus or whether I'm on zero, so the ovation has been truly fantastic, it is a special one and it has made my trip very, very special," he said.
