He might be one of the best batsmen in the world with the highest number of runs and centuries in one-day internationals to his name but Sachin Tendulkar has shown that he is human after all.
Tendulkar got out on 99 - one short of his 42nd ODI hundred at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) ground in Mohali on Thursday while playing in the second ODI against Pakistan.
This is the third time that Tendulkar got out on 99.
The earlier two occasions were also this year itself - against England at Bristol and against South Africa at Belfast (Ireland) in the summer.
Tendulkar, who has been at the receiving end for several poor umpiring decisions in recent years, was on Thursday cleanly caught behind by Kamran Akmal off the bowling of Umar Gul.
In 394 innings in a record-setting 404 limited over games, Tendulkar has been dismissed in the 90s no less than 15 times. And five of these have come this year alone.
Tendulkar, who made his international debut in Pakistan in 1989, has the highest number of centuries in Tests and ODIs.
