The India cricketer Rahul Dravid believes his team-mate Sachin Tendulkar isn't letting the pressure of notching his one hundredth international century get to him.

The Indian great is aiming to notch his century of centuries during the third Test against Australia at the WACA Ground, starting tomorrow.

It's been 10 months since Tendulkar got his 99th international century, against South Africa and although the little master has come close this series, posting scores of 73, 32, 41 and 80, Dravid says he has been pretty relaxed about it.

Dravid says it's not spoken about within the group and says Tendalkar must be heartened by the fact that he's been batting beautifully over the last two or three games.
