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.

The other bolwers who grabbed wickets are: Mohammed Shami (1/36) and Bhuvneshar Kumar (1/45). Though they may not have got too many wickets but surely, they have created the initial pressure on West Indies.
From West Indies side the only batsman who scored reasonably was the opener, Keiran Powell (48). According to sports analysts, the match may not be played for 5 days like it happened in the first innings.
This match has become very prominent as this match is the last test match being played by Indian Cricket God Sachin Tendulkar. From the other side, it is Shivnarine Chanderpaul’s 150th Test match also.
