Akram backs Tendulkar in pursuit of 100th ton
Monday 08 August 2011

Neither Sachin Tendulkar nor India have had a good time of it in England thus far. But former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram feels there is no doubt the much-talked about Tendulkar ton will come in England.

However the former Pakistani ace is not sure if the Indian maestro will reach that landmark in the third Test at Edgbaston.

"I think Tendulkar will reach the milestone in the fourth Test at the oval where he has the best chance of creating history. But I have no doubt he will get this milestone and become the first batsman to achieve this record," Akram told reporters in Karachi.

Akram said the pressure comes from the fact that Tendulkar is standing on the threshold of achieving a landmark no cricketer has come close to in the history of the game.

"There has been so much hype and build up to this series and particularly around Tendulkar's milestone that obviously the pressure must be felt by the great batsman. Even the greatest of batsman feel the pressure in such situations." concluded Akram.
