2nd Test India vs West Indies - Sachin's 200th & Final Test

Nov 14-18, 2013

Mumbai Test, day 3: India maul West Indies, Tendulkar tearfully bows out from the game; IND-WIN:2-0(2/2)

India crushed a hapless West Indies by an innings and 126 runs to complete a 2-0 whitewash in one of the most lopsided contests in recent history. Moments after the final West Indies wicket fell, the Indian cricketers converged around Sachin Tendulkar and handed him a souvenir stump as they came one by one to hug him. He was given a mobile guard of honour by the Indian team as he bid an emotional farewell to his cricket career, which also saw him crying for the first time ever. His final day of Test cricket comes exactly after 24 years and one day since he was handed his international cap, on November 15, 1989. Pragyan Ojha took his second five wicket haul of the match (10 for 89 in the test) as India won the series 2-0. Starting Day 3 at their overnight score of 43 for three and trailing by 270 runs, they were all out for 187 to lose by an innings and 126 runs shortly before lunch. This is a special test match, I'll definitely remember this all my life and this is for Sachin paaji.  - Pragyan Ojha after winning the Man of the Match for his ten-wicket haul. This is just the start of my Test career, there is a long way to go.  - Rohit Sharma after winning the Man of the Series, in his debut Test series. Wish Sachin all the best. We are honoured to share field with him.  - West Indies Captain Darren Sammy. Sir has never ever said 'well played' to me because he thought I would get complacent and I would stop working hard. Maybe he can push his luck and wish me now, well done on my career, because there are no more matches, sir, in my life.  - Sachin on Coach Achrekar during his retirement speech. Tendulkar was awarded the Star Sports Believe Trophy. He also received a special award by the Sri Lankan government.
2nd Test, Mumbai, day three: India 495 (Pujara 113, Rohit 111*, Sachin 74, Shillingford 5-179) beat West Indies 182 (Ojha 5-40, Ashwin 3-45) and 187 (Ojha 5-49) by an innings and 126 runs

Mumbai Test, day 2: Sachin scores 74 in final outing, West Indies staring at another huge defeat

Sachin Tendulkar scored 74 runs against the West Indies in what could be his final batting appearance for India, falling 26 runs shy of what would have been his 101st century, spoiling the wishes of the full house at Wankhede Stadium and millions more TV viewers acorss the globe. Starting the day on 38, Tendulkar looked fluent during his 68-minute stay at the wicket on the day. He faced 118 balls in all hitting 12 boundaries, all of which were pure class, during his 68th fifty in Tests. There was no great celebration from the West Indies after captain Darren Sammy caught him in the slips of a Narsingh Deonarine delivery. Tendulkar's partnership of 144 with Pujara was his 86th century partnership - the second highest in Tests, next only to Rahul Dravid's 88.Rohit Sharma's second consecutive century (111*) in his first two innings - only the second Indian batsman after Sourav Ganguly and the fifth in Test annals to do so - and Cheteshwar Pujara's 113 helped India pile up an imposing 495 for a 313-run lead. Pujara's feat of recording five hundreds in first 24 Test innings is without parallel in Indian Cricket. He has totalled 1279 in 13 Tests (21 innings) at an average of 75.23, including five centuries and three fifties in India. Spinner Shane Shillingford picked up 5/179 after toiling for 43 overs. With this, Shillingford has now bagged five wickets or more in an innings in five consecutive innings. West Indies have scored 43 runs at the loss of three wickets while trailing by 270 runs when stumps were drwan on day two. Reported earlier: Tendulkar and Cheteshwar Pujara, who strung an unbeaten 80-run partnership for the third wicket to take India to 157 for two at stumps, will resume batting today at the Wankhede Stadium. The match starts at 09:30 local time.
2nd Test, Mumbai, day two: West Indies 182 (Ojha 5-40, Ashwin 3-45) and 43/3 trail India 495 (Pujara 113, Rohit 111*, Sachin 74, Shillingford 5-179) by 270 runs

Mumbai Test, day 1: West Indies all out for 182 before tea, India 157/2 with Sachin on 38*

Appearing in his 200th and final Test, Sachin Tendulkar scored 38 not out from 73 balls, and was involved in an unbeaten 80 runs partnership with Pujara (34*). At stumps, India trail West Indies by 25 runs with eight wickets in hand. Shillingford claimed the wickets of both the openers Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan in the space of three balls with the score at 77, much to the delight of the crowd waiting for their hero. Sachin walked in with a bat-grip featuring the tri-colour to the thunderous ovation of the crowd. He was given a guard of honour by the West Indies side and umpires as he walked to the crease.Earlier, Pragyan Ojha and Ravichandran Ashwin picked up eight wickets as the West Indies were bowled out for 182 by the hosts in their first innings in the second test in Mumbai on day one. The Windies had gone into the lunch break on 93 for two, but lost eight wickets for 89 runs during the second session at the Wankhede Stadium, with Ojha picking up his sixth five-wicket haul of his test career.Virat Kohli's prominent advertising billboards by the FMCG company which overshadowed the retiring Sachin Tendulkar's images (51 different pictures with his Test centuries and names of oppositions inscribed on rectangular billboards along the perimeter of the Wankhede Stadium roof) was removed before the toss by the embarrassed Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). After the toss, the Union Law Minister Kapil Sibal released commemorative postage stamps to pay tribute to the veteran batsman. The 40-year old batting great is only the second person after Mother Teresa to have a stamp released after him, when he is alive.

Sachin Tendulkar Retirement Amul

Nov 14-18, 2013

Mumbai Test: Sachin's 200th & Last

The 40-year-old Sachin Tendulkar will start his 200th and final Test in his hometown of Mumbai at the Wankhede Stadium against West Indies on Thursday. The retiring little master who broke almost every record is the highest runscorer in international cricket, with 15,847 runs in 199 Tests and 18,426 runs in 463 one-day internationals. A full 25 years after he started his first-class journey with a Ranji Trophy hundred for Mumbai - when a Ranji Trophy cricketer could hope to make only 400 rupees a day - he is retiring as the wealthiest cricketer, ahead of the combined net worth of the next four in the list - MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli - with a personal fortune of $160 million. Sachin Tendulkar is already a member of the upper house of the Indian parliament, one of several appointed members from the worlds of sport, the arts and culture. As the entire nation is waiting to see him stride out, take guard and face up only one more time for India, the website selling the tickets crashed on Monday and on Tuesday all tickets were sold assuring that the Tests match will be a housefull affair.

ODI Team Selection

India ODI Team

Dhawal Kulkarni in India ODI squad, Ishant dropped

Ishant Sharma and Vinay Kumar, who had forgettable series against Australia last month, have been dropped as the selectors picked India's 15-man squad for the one-dayers against West Indies. Mumbai pace bowler Dhawal Kulkarni has earned a maiden national limited-overs call-up, while allrounder Ravindra Jadeja, who was rested for the preceding Test series to allow him the chance to recover from a shoulder injury, is back. Haryana seamer Mohit Sharma, who featured in the second-string squad that played in Zimbabwe in August, has also been included. Kulkarni was last included in the national squad in 2009 for a Test series against New Zealand while Mohit made a dream debut against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo during the fourth ODI in August this year. Apart from these two changes, the selectors have retained the rest of the side that won the seven-match ODI series against Australia 3-2.Yuvraj Singh, who also had a very poor one-day series against Australia, retained his place. The squad announced by BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel has seven batsmen in skipper Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu. The five-member pace attack will be led by Mohammed Shami and will also include Bhuvneshwar Kumar and left-arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will spearhead the spin department along with leg spinner Amit Mishra and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja. India squad for ODIs against the West Indies: MS Dhoni (Captain & Wicket Keeper), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ambati Rayudu, Amit Mishra, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni and Mohit Sharma.

1st Test India vs West Indies

NOV 6-10, 2013

Kolkata Test, day 3: India won by an innings and 51 runs; IND-WIN:1-0(1/2)

Debutant Mohammad Shami's raw pace and devastating spell of reverse swing helped India clinch a massive innings and 51 run win against West Indies inside three days in the first cricket Test. India had grabbed a first innings lead of 219 with the help of Rohit Sharma's 177 and Ravichandran Ashwin's 124 in the morning. Shillingford was the pick of the West Indies bowlers, taking six wickets for 167 runs from 55 overs, nine of which were maidens. West Indies collapsed from 101/1 to 168 in their second innings as Mohammed Shami (5-47) and Aswhin (3-46) played starring roles in India's innings victory that stretched their Test winning streak to an unprecedented five matches. Rohit Sharma, who became the 14th Indian batsman to get a century on Test debut, won the Man of the Match award for his brilliant 177. Shami took nine wickets in the match, the second best figures for an Indian bowler on debut, after Narendra Hirwani's 16 for 136 at Madras in January, 1988. Sachin Tendulkar bid goodbye to the Eden Gardens with this victory, but left the fans disappointed as they watched him bat only once during the game. His only contribution with the bat ended when he was controversially given out lbw in the first innings for just 10 when the ball looked to be travelling over the stumps.
India vs West Indies, 1st Test, Calcutta, Day three: India 453 (RG Sharma 177, Ashwin 124, Shillingford 6-167) beat West Indies 234 & 168 (Shami 5-47) by an innings an 51 runs

Kolkata Test, day 2: Rohit's debut century rescues India after Sachin falls cheaply

Farewell man Sachin Tendulkar got out cheaply to a controversial decision on the second day of the India-West Indies test breaking the hearts of thousands of fans who queued up to watch him bat in his penultimate Test. Sachin was dismissed for 10 by West Indian off-spinner Shane Shillingford and he showed a hint of disappointment while walking back on umpire Nigel Llong's decision as the ball had hit him high on the back leg.The thirty-year-old off-spinner Shane Shillingford used the 'doosra' with telling effect, and at the end of the first session of play that clearly belonged to the West Indians, had figures of 4/53 in 17 overs. India started Day 2 at 37/0, but lost 5 wickets for 83 before Dhoni and Rohit Sharma put on 73. In his first Test, Rohit Sharma walked in at the early exit of Sachin Tendulkar, and is still at the crease at stumps, having made 127. Ashwin is eight short of his second Test hundred as India ended the day with a lead of 120 - the unbroken seventh-wicket stand now worth 198 runs.
India vs West Indies, 1st Test, Calcutta, Day two, stumps: India 354/6 (RG Sharma 127*, Ashwin 92*, Dhoni 42, Sachin 10, Shillingford 4-130) lead West Indies 234 (Samuels 65, Shami 4-71) by 120 runs

Kolkata: Sachin's 199th Test - Shami makes dream debut

Pacer Mohammed Shami made a dream debut on his home ground picking up four wickets to restrict the visitors to 234 at Kolkata. The 23-year-old Shami, who bowled with control, finished with figures of 4-71. Tendulkar, appearing in his 199th Test match, also drew applause from the 33,000-strong crowd for taking the wicket of Shane Shillingford at the stroke of tea. The 40-year-old retiring legend took his Test wicket tally to 46 with this.At stumps, India were 37 for no loss, with Shikhar Dhawan (21; 27 b, 4x4) and Murali Vijay (16; 45 b, 2x4) at the crease. Earlier, Darren Sammy won the toss and elected to bat first at the Eden Gardens. Samules scored 65 off 98 balls with the help of 11 fours and two sixes. Apart from Shami, Rohit Sharma played his maiden Test, getting the cap from Tendulkar, and becoming the first cricketer to make his debut after playing 100 One-Day Internationals.

Rohit Sharma, Umesh Yadav in India Test squad

Rohit Sharma, who has played in 107 ODIs, but not a single Test match for India has earned a place in the Test squad when the selectors chose the team for Sachin Tendulkar's farewell series against the West Indies with two tests to be held in Kolkata (November 6 to 10) and Mumbai (November 14 to 18). Pacer Zaheer Khan was ignored while all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been forced out due to a shoulder strain. Struggling Ishant Sharma retained his place, while Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, all-rounder Yuvraj Singh and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh were all overlooked. The team also had no place for Suresh Raina while paceman Umesh Yadav has been recalled into the squad.
