Kapil blasts media for hype over Tendulkar's 100th ton

"You are more keen about Sachin's (Tendulkar) 99 hundreds and not about how we are going to win the next series. I am not saying don't give credit to individual performance, but it should not be more than the country's performance.

"Everyone knows Sachin has 99 centuries. But how many know that how many of these matches have ended in victories? Everyone knows Sunil Gavaskar has scored 34 Test centuries? But can anyone tell how many matches he has saved for the team? Out of Sachin's 99 hundreds, 60 have ended in victories. If anyone reports that I'll be happy," he said.

"We have to change our mindset. If we lose the match what's the use of statistics. To hell with that!," he added.
