Kolkata: Discarded Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Friday exuded confidence that master batsman Sachin Tendulkar will complete a century of international hundreds in the Boxing Day Test at Australia's Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
"I am confident he will get his century of international hundreds in the first Test match of (India's) tour to Australia. That will be a proud moment for all of us," Harbhajan said on the sidelines of a function here.
Harbhajan's slump in form has paved the way for two young spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha, to be picked for the four-Test series against Australia.

Harbhajan said the whole country is now praying for Tendulkar.
"My best wishes are with him. The whole country is praying for him," he added.
Tendulkar is one ton away from becoming the first batsman in the history of cricket to achieve the landmark.
