Iconic Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar was dismissed for 74 by Narsingh Deonarine, early on day two in second test match between India and West Indies.
In his final 200th test match, Tendulkar's home crowd was left stunned when West Indies captain Darren Sammy took a fine catch at first slip to dismiss the veteran batsmen off Narsingh Deonarine's ball.
Tendulkar's 74 runs inning is widely expected as his final inning as many commentators predict India to beat West Indies by and an entire inning.
Starting at the overnight score of 152 for two wickets, India were 221 for three at Tendulkar's exit, which saw the 40-year-old receive an emotional standing ovation from the entire crowd of the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
While Cheteshwar Pujara grabbed the spotlight in the first half of the day, it was the retiring legend, who held the centre-stage in the last session with his entire family and childhood coach Ramakant Achrekar watching from the stands.
Tendulkar is regarded as one of the greatest cricketers ever and arguably the best in the history of Indian cricket.
The Master Blaster will hang up his boots following the end of the second test match against West Indies, ending a memorable and record-breaking career of 24 years.
