Century 12 of 14; THE TRUTH! Sachin's century and India losing! 175 vs Australia

Sachin scored the half of the target of 351, but others failed. Yet another ONEMAN SHOW!
Sachin has scored 49 tons in ODIs and India won in 33 matches. Lost in 14. No result in 2. We will discuss each one of these 16 occasions.

12 of 14;  ODI vs Australia. Played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad

Australia won the toss and batted first. India used 6 bowlers, All others except Yuvraj and Irfan Pathan went for 8 runs per over. Australia set a huge target of 351.

Tendulkar almost chased 351 on his own but, with the target in sight, he got out and the rest choked, falling short by three runs with two balls still to go. In Chennai in 1998-99, Tendulkar, having played an innings as incredible as this, left the last three wickets 17 to get; tonight he left them 19 off 17. -cricinfo

sachin didnt get support from his team mates. only Suresh Raina helped sachin a bit with his half century.
What is the job of an opener in an ODI? Play 300 balls and take total runs needed? Anyway, Sachin took 141 balls and scored half of the target! 175!

Only Suresh Raina gave Sachin a bit support. The other scores were like this Sehwag 38, Gambhir, 8, Yuvraj 9, Dhoni 6, Harbhajan 0, Jadeja 23

It is not the fault of Sachin Tendulkar that India ended up on the losing side even when he got a huge ton for the side. Sachin is just 1 among the 11 players playing for the team. His duty is to score runs, and did it well in those 16 occasions, with incredible strike rates in almost all occasions!
