Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is disappointed at Sachin Tendulkar missing out on his 100th international ton and feels that Mumbai was the most ideal place for him to reach the coveted landmark.

Tendulkar was out on 94 on Friday off Ravi Rampual`s bowling.

As Tendulkar was inching towards the milestone, Ganguly who is now playing Ranji Trophy for Bengal stopped the nets session at Jadavpur University ground in Salt Lake to catch the action on TV but only to return disappointed, like millions of fans all over the world.

"It`s really disappointing. Mumbai would have been the best place for him to get to that 100th international century," Ganguly said.

But the southpaw said it`s just a matter of time that he gets to that mark.

"It`s just a matter of time. It will happen the way he has reached to 99th (international) centuries. It`s just a number. Maybe next time..." he said.
