Australian PM wishes Tendulkar to score 100th ton Down Under
Sydney: Indian cricket team and their Australian counterparts on Sunday attended a high tea hosted by Prime Minister Julia Gillard who wished Sachin Tendulkar to score his 100th international ton during the ongoing Test series.
Her head turning towards Tendulkar, who is just one ton short of his 100th international century, Gillard said, "While Australians are barracking very hard for our cricket team, I think they are looking forward to what may be a very special 100 (from Tendulkar) in Australia some time during the course of this series."
Gillard was speaking at her Sydney official residence Kirribilli House where she invited the two teams for a high tea.
She also posed with Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and other players.
Australian captain Michael Clarke, who also spoke, quipped, "I think Sachin Tendulkar is an amazing player. But we are hoping he scores his hundredth 100 in his next series, not against us."
Tendulkar scored 73 and 32 in the two innings in the first of the four-match Test series in Melbourne, which India lost by 122 runs. The second Test starts on Tuesday at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
