Revealing one secret of his mind-boggling success in international cricket, Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar said he never gets complacent and focusses hard irrespective of the might of his opponents.

"It is the same in every match, you have to still go out and score," Tendulkar told reporters after the second day's play of the second Test against Bangladesh.

"For me, no attack can be underestimated. I always apply the same way whether we play Australia, South Africa, England, Zimbabwe or Bangladesh. I just focus on what needs to be done from my side," said the batsman, who recorded his 45th Test hundred and 90th international ton today.

"I don't count my centuries, I just want to score runs," Tendulkar said when asked whether he would be looking ahead to score 100 international tons.

Asked about his 45th ton coming on the eve of India's Republic Day, he said, "I hope something good comes out for the team. Tomorrow is a very important day for the country."

Tendulkar said the wicket was two-paced, not easy to bat and it was a good toss to lose.
