Tendulkar makes fluent start to innings

November 14, 2013

MUMBAI, India (AP) — Sachin Tendulkar made a steady start to his innings during his 200th and last cricket test as he scored some early singles and then unleashed a couple of boundaries.

Tendulkar was given a guard of honor by the West Indies team and most of the spectators at the ground kept standing as Tendulkar settled in the middle.

Tendulkar looked relaxed as he walked in and took guard with the crowd shouting “Sachin, Sachin!”

Tendulkar announced last month that he would retire after the two home tests against the West Indies this season.

The 40-year-old Indian holds dozens of batting records, including most runs and centuries in both tests and one-day internationals. He was the first batsman to score a double-century in one-day internationals and is the only player to score 100 international centuries.
