Dravid claims Tendulkar unperturbed about elusive 100th ton

Sydney: Indian batsman Rahul Dravid has claimed that master blaster Sachin Tendulkar remains unperturbed about his elusive 100th international ton.

Dravid said there is no pressure on Tendulkar to achieve the landmark and added that this is not being discussed by the team.

“It`s not spoken about much in the group at all, actually not at all. He`s been pretty relaxed about it,” said Dravid.

Dravid believes that Tendulkar has been batting really well over the last few Test matches and has come quite close to achieving this magnificent milestone. “He got 90 in Bombay and then I think he was 70 and 80 in the last two games, so obviously from his point of view, I`m sure he knows he`s batting well enough to complete it,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as saying.

“So, I guess, it`d be great if he can do it here(Perth) for us. But, I think the heartening thing for him in the back of his mind is that he`s been batting beautifully over the last two or three games,” Dravid added.
