Sehwag regrets missing Tendulkar's 100th

Delhi: Delhi Daredevils skipper Virender Sehwag on Wednesday once again hailed Sachin Tendulkar's 100th international hundred as an achievement that is likely to stand the test of time. He also expressed disappointment at not being able to be part of the dressing room when Tendulkar reached the milestone in Mirpur.

"It would have been and honour to be in the team and share a dressing room when Sachin got that hundred against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup tournament, but I am sad to miss that," said Sehwag at the launch of the Daredevils' website in Delhi.

Tendulkar hit his hundredth ton on March 17 against Bangladesh during the Asia Cup, in a match India lost to hurt their chances of qualifying for the final.

Sehwag hailed Sachin's achievement and said it's an honour to play with him.

When asked about the perfect age of retirement for a cricketer, Sehwag said: "As long as the player is enjoying it does not matter at what age a player retires. No one can force anyone to retire and it's up to an individual to decide when the right time is for him to call it a day".

Sehwag also hailed Virat Kohli's progress and said that the young Delhi batsman could play a key role for India in the future. "Kohli is a fantastic player and he has proved it at numerous occasions. He has already scored 11 tons in less than 100 matches, that tells us about the talent the youngster has got," he said.
