Century will add to Sachin's greatness: Afridi

Shahid Afridi has denied reports that said he would not allow Sachin Tendulkar to get his 100th international ton in the World Cup semi final against Pakistan in Mohali on Wednesday.

"How can I stop anybody from scoring a century against any team? I am a big fan of Tendulkar," Afridi, who has a Tendulkar shirt framed and hanging in the dressing room in his Karachi home, told MiD DAY on Monday.

A section of the media had quoted Afridi as saying that his team would make sure the Indian maestro didn't get his landmark century during this World Cup.

"He (Tendulkar) will have to wait until after the World Cup to reach the landmark. We will try and make sure no batsman plays a long innings," the Pakistan skipper reportedly said. However, Afridi denied the comments attributed to him.

"I didn't give any such interview. I never said anything like that. As an opposing captain, I want to get Sachin out as soon as possible but it is not in my hands to stop him from scoring a century," he said.

"Tendulkar is a great player. If he scores a century it will add to his greatness," Afridi added.
