Sachin's last match: India 77/2, Tendulkar comes in for batting
Sachin Tendulkar's 200th Test: West Indies Packs Up At 182 In First Innings. On the very first day of Sachin Tendulkar's farewell Test match being played at Wankhade stadium in Mumbai, Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha made a five-wicket haul to restrict West Indian batting to 182 in their first innings.
Mumbai: Finally the moment has come and Sachin entered the ground for batting. It is evident that in the last test match of Tendulkar, as a token of love, the bowlers have already given their best and restricted West Indies for 182 in their first innings.
Later, the openers gave a good opening to Indian innings. While Shikar Dhavan made 33 runs, Murali Vijay was out at 43 runs.
Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha made a five-wicket haul to restrict West Indian batting to 182 in their first innings. It was palpable that West Indies batsmen were uncomfortable against the bowling of Shami Ahmed and Bhuvneshwar Kumar; and they looked naive against spinners: Ravichandran Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha.
In a single session, for 89 runs West Indies lost 8 crucial wickets. Ojha, whose performance was not up to the mark in the first Test, picked up five crucial wickets for 40 in 11.2 overs, while Ashwin, who completed 100 wickets in Tests, had figures of three for 45 in 15 overs to show for his efforts.
