Sachin Tendulkar left millions of his fans depressed after falling six short of his 100th century in international cricket, during day four of the third and final Test in Mumbai, on Friday.

A packed Wankhede stadium and millions of fans in India and worldwide were expecting the master batsman to achieve the landmark at his home ground, but Ravi Rampaul had him caught at second slip for 94 to dash all their hopes.

- Scorecard

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, an avid cricket fan, was among the first to react to Tendulkar's dismissal on Twitter.

"Oh dear ! Believe Sachin out on 95 ! Heartbroken ! Ah well another day maybe .. We'll wait !" he wrote on Twitter.

"Correction : out on 94 !! Still heartbroken, but full of hope and conviction that he shall get there someday !!"

Once the new ball was taken, tendulkar looked eager to get there quickly..tough game, one error and its all over.

Ind wants Tendulkar relaxed & at his best in Oz. It is for this reason they shud pick him in the odis to get the monkey off his back.
