Like we guess pretty much every other cricket blogger, we'd already penned our 'Ton of Ton's post in fully expectant anticipation that Sachin Tendulkar would reach this unique and magical milestone this morning.
But alas it was not to be and the hyperbole will now be magnified even more.
Like Bradman, Tendulkar has showed a hint of imperfection, which shows that even the greatest practitioners of their art are still after all just human beings like you and me.
And also like Bradman, Tendulkar can now argue that he has in some way equalled the greatest of all batsmen. 99 hundreds and a 94 equals 99.94. Surely?
