'Sachin is destined to score 100th ton at Wankhede'

November 23, 2011 12:03 IST

Former India skipper Ajit Wadekar has voiced confidence that Sachin Tendulkar will score his hundredth century at the Wankhede stadium, saying it was the batting maestro's "destiny" to achieve the feat at his home ground.

"It is destiny that he was born and brought up in Mumbai. He is bound to make history at Mumbai," the 70-year-old said.

Sachin Tendulkar"Among the trio, (Rahul) Dravid and Laxman have scored centuries (in the series), only he is left. He will score it in Mumbai," said Wadekar at the launch of the Eknath Solkar Academy in Mumbai.

India are playing the third and last Test against the West Indies in Mumbai.

Wadekar also backed discarded off-spinner Harbhajan Singh to make a comeback in the Indian team.

"He has taken loads of wickets. It is just one of the things that happen to any cricketer. I'm sure he will make a big comeback. There is no doubt that R Ashwin has been bowling extremely well but I think you can have two off-spinners like I had in my team. There is no harm in that."
