England fast bowler Tim Bresnan has revealed the dismissal of Sachin Tendulkar. Bresnan has claimed that he and Australian umpire Rod Tucker were threatened with death by dismissing Sachin Tendulkar before the 100th Test in the 2011 Oval Test. In this Test, Sachin was dismissed for 91 runs.
Bresnan said that Sachin was playing for 91 in the Oath Test’s Chauthipari. Then umpire Tucker gave Sachin LBW on his ball. Had he not been out, he would have completed his 100th century on the same day.
If Sachin is not out, he would have completed a century: Bresnan
The English bowler said in the podcast of English county club Yorkshire, “The ball was going out of leg stump and Australian umpire Tucker dismissed Sachin. He was playing for 91 runs and certainly would have completed a century. We won that series against India and became the number one team in the world. “
‘I threatened to die on Twitter’
He said, “It was only after this incident that both of us started receiving threats to kill us.” I received threats on Twitter and umpire Tucker received threatening letters on his home address. Threatened to kill, how did you give him out? The ball was going off the leg side. “
Umpire Tucker had to accompany personal security personnel
According to Bresnan, nervous by these threats, Tucker had to increase his security. He said, “After some months he met me and started saying that friend, I had to keep security personnel. Police were stationed around his house in Australia. “
Sachin scored 100th century in 2012 Asia Cup
Tendulkar completed his 99th international century against South Africa in the 2011 World Cup league match. However, he had to wait a year to score the 100th century. In the 2012 Asia Cup, he completed this century by playing a century against Bangladesh. Then he had scored 114 runs.
Sachin is the only batsman to score 100 international centuries. He scored 15921 Tests and 18426 runs in ODIs. He has 51 centuries in Tests and 49 in ODIs.
