Tendulkar on threshold of another milestone

Vadodara, Oct 10: Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar is on the threshold of yet another milestone in his 18-year-old career, he would become the second player in the game's history to feature in 400 one-day international (ODI).

Sachin would join the elite company of Sri Lanka all-rounder Sanath Jayasuriya who was the first to reach the magical figure.

However, the 'Bombay Bomber' seemed unmoved when asked about his feeling ahead of the feat, terming tomorrow's match against Australia as just another match for him.

Speaking to reporters on the eve of the fifth ODI at the Reliance Industries Cricket Stadium here , Sachin went down memory lane saying that his knock of 93 against Pakistan in the 2003 World Cup was one of his most memorable moments in his career.

Listing his other memorable performances in his illustrious career, he said the 1993 Hero Cup final against West Indies and his knocks against Australia in Sharjah in 1998 have been some of the moments which gave him tremendous pleasure.

Speaking about the milestones in his career, the 1997 Wisden Cricketer of the Year said milestones do not hold much importance to him, instead it is the team performance which he attaches more importance to.

''The team should do well, then even if I get out on a zero I do not feel that bad. However, I feel terrible if the team loses even though I have performed well, he said.
