image for Sachin Tendulkar Misses Out Again - Not Funny, Says Expert

Indian great, Sachin Tendulkar, again missed out on his 100th century at Trent Bridge this afternoon, but one observer isn't laughing.

The number four looked comfortable on 56 when he left one that homed in on his off stump from English paceman, Jimmy Anderson.

"You'd think I'd be laughing, what with all the adulation that follows the little man around," said sports editor Thelonious Adidas. "But this is poor stuff. India are supposed to be the best team in the world and England are making them look crap!"

As England were looking to wrap up a massive victory after tea, Tim Bresnan looked to be picking up the plaudits when he grabbed his fifth wicket.

"That did raise a smile," said Adidas. "That young lad fielding as twelfth man nearly dropped the skied hook from Harbhajan but managed to cling on, after missing a tough catch a few balls earlier.

"The look on his face was hilarious and when they all came and patted his head and his cap went haywire - oh, no... ha, ha, I'm off... sorry..."
