Sachin Tendulkar looked set to complete his 100th international century on Monday but Tim Bresnan got the better of him and sent the veteran batsman back with nine runs left to be scored for the elsuive three-digit personal score.

Tendulkar batted with caution on the final day of the 4th Test against England at The Oval. He even managed to build a 144-run partnership with Amit Mishra as both batsmen showed the will to fight it out.

Mishra however was removed by Graeme Swann on 84 and Tendulkar followed soon after, trapped LBW by Bresnan.
