Richardson says Tendulkar will have to 'earn every run' against Windies

Jamaica, Nov 1 (ANI): West Indies Cricket team manager, Richie Richardson has said that the retiring Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar will have to earn every single run in his last two Tests against the Caribbean side.

According to, the final Test is expected to be Tendulkar's 200th and final, which should make him the only cricketer ever to reach that landmark.

Richardson said that the West Indies unit would like to make it clear that they have come here with a mission tow in the series.

He added that they would try their best to stop him from scoring runs, adding that they would not let him an inch and he would have to earn every run.

During West Indies' last tour to India in 2011, Tendulkar was the centre of attention as he neared his 100th international century, the report said.

However, during the Mumbai Test, he came within six runs of the landmark before being dismissed by Ravi Rampaul in a series the West Indies lost 2-0, the report added.

Richardson further said that winning a series in the sub-continent is a big challenge for every team, adding that it was a big opportunity for the youngsters.

Richardson, who played against Tendulkar before his retirement from international cricket in 1996 also disclosed that they have planned a tribute for Tendulkar but has declined to reveal details. (ANI)
