England v India: Andrew Strauss backs England to subdue Sachin Tendulkar in his bid for 100th hundred
England Test captain warns Sachin Tendulkar to expect a rough ride in his search of 100th international hundred.
Tendulkar will be firmly in the spotlight in the first Test at Lord’s next week as he aims to reach his landmark century in the 2,000 Test in the history of the sport and the 100th between England and India.
Although Strauss is a huge admirer of Tendulkar’s talent, he is focused on leading England to a series victory over the world’s top side and promised to pile the pressure on India’s star man at a ground where he has never scored more than 37.
“Clearly he deserves a lot of praise for what he has achieved in the game. But out there in the middle we will be even more determined to get him out cheaply, because of what he has achieved,” Strauss said.
