According to England’s fast bowler Tim Bresnan, both he and Australian umpire Rod Tucker got death threats from fans after taking Indian legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s wicket. Sachin got out at 91 during the 2011 Test at The Oval which denied his 100th international century.

Recently, Tim Bresnan was on Yorkshire Cricket: Covers Off’ podcast where he stated, “This ball, it was probably missing leg anyway, and umpire Hill (Tucker), Aussie lad, shot him out. He was on 80-odd as well [91], definitely going to get it (his century). We win the series and go to number one in the world.”

Tim Bresnan says Umpire Rod Tucker and him got death threats for ages On dismissing Sachin Tendulkar at the oval

Tim also said that Australian umpire Tucker had to tighten his security after he received the death threats. “I caught up with him a few months later and he was like, ‘Mate, I’ve had to get a security guard and stuff.’ He had police protection around his gaff in Australia,” Tim Bresnan asserted during the Podcast.

Talking about Sachin, to achieve the 100 century he had to wait for some time as he missed it in the 2011 World Cup and West Indies tour. Later, he completed 100th ton in 2012 against Bangladesh and became the only batsman in the world to achieve this goal.
