Oz media says Tendulkar 'deserved' to end career with century

Sydney, Nov 16 : The Australian media has claimed that Sachin Tendulkar endured the same unsatisfying walk back to the pavilion as fellow cricket icons Donald Bradman, Brian Lara and Ricky Ponting, in his last innings and it all deserved to end on three figures.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, legends like Tendulkar do not receive fairytale farewells, at least not in cricket.

If anyone deserved to end their career with a century, it was the man who scored more than any other, the batsman with 100 hundreds, the report said.

In his 200th Test match in his hometown of Mumbai and in front of his mother for the first time in his 24-year career, cricket's most prolific run scorer stopped a nation, the report added.
