However, Tendulkar remained in India for four days and then returned to England after that. After returning to England, he took the field for the match against Kenya. Tendulkar wrote in his autobiography that after spending four days in India, I went back to England to join the team the evening before the match with Kenya. He had said that I saw what my father wanted from me and that is why I decided to go to England and play World Cup matches. I managed to score a century, which is one of the many centuries in my career. My focus was not on sports, I dedicated this century to my father.
