Sachin Tendulkar getting out in the 90s!

India and Australia are playing yet another fascinating test cricket series and on the 3rd day Sachin Tendulkar got out on 98! He was close to scoring his 49th century and then booom! He gets out! Although he had done the job for the team (scoring a 100 is a personal record) by scoring 98, I kept wondering if Sachin is getting jittery in 90s...

I ran some queries and yes, Sachin Tendulkar is indeed in the top 10 list of players who've been out in 90s most number of times in both test and one day cricket. In fact he leads the group of One Day batsman who've been out in 90s most number of time  :`( I'm sure Sachin isn't proud of that.
