Bangladesh pacer Mashrafe Mortaza on Monday said the inclusion of Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly had made a big difference to the Indian team playing the first Test in Chittagong.

When asked to compare the Indian ODI side with the Test team, Mortaza said "definitely when Sachin and Sourav are in the team, there is a big change."

Mortaza, who shone with the bat to rescue his team from a difficult position in their first innings on the fourth day, said he was not disappointed at missing out on his maiden Test century.

"No, I am not disappointed. The main thing is that my team has recovered a lot from the situation it was in," Mortaza told reporters after the day's play.

He said there was a chance for him to score a hundred but things became tough after Shahadat Hossain got out as the ninth batsman.
