Live cricket score - India vs West Indies 2nd Test Day 1

Match Preview

Without doubt the most enduring phenomenon in modern cricket and India's biggest sporting icon, Sachin Tendulkar is all set for an epic curtain call starting from Thursday when he steps on the field against the West Indies for his 200th and final Test where emotions will weigh heavy.

For once, an individual would be the focus even though it is a clash of two teams and why not, given that the individual in question is a man who successfully transformed from a prodigal talent to a living legend in 24 glorious years.

Tendulkar has been synonymous with the game in India for more than two decades and held in awe and admiration all over the cricket-playing world.

As a curly-haired teen with unbelievable talent, he walked in to the cricket field and the hearts of his fans quite effortlessly ever since his debut in 1989. And Such has been his domination in both the places that the vaccum he would leave seems unfillable.

Having won the first Test by an innings and 51 runs, Team India and their seniormost statesman will be focussed on inflicting another humiliating defeat on a mediocre Caribbean outfit at the Wankhede Stadium.

But the scores and statistics will certainly take backseat for the next few days as a nation gets ready to bid farewell to arguably its greatest and most revered sporting icon.

Tendulkar has been synonymous with the game in India for more than two decades and held in awe and admiration all over the cricket-playing world.

As a curly-haired teen with unbelievable talent, he walked in to the cricket field and the hearts of his fans quite effortlessly ever since his debut in 1989. And Such has been his domination in both the places that the vacuum he would leave seems unfillable.

Having won the first Test by an innings and 51 runs, Team India and their seniormost statesman will be focussed on inflicting another humiliating defeat on a mediocre Caribbean outfit at the Wankhede Stadium.

But the scores and statistics will certainly take backseat for the next few days as a nation gets ready to bid farewell to arguably its greatest and most revered sporting icon.

When Sir Don Bradman retired at the Oval in 1948, there were tributes but celebrations of a fantastic career were much muted.

But now as world cricket's most celebrated No 4 batsman bids adieu to the game, there is a silent prayer on everyone's mind -- let it be a farewell to remember.

While the onus will be on Mahendra Singh Dhoni to control on-field proceedings, it will also be difficult for the players not to feel overwhelmed by the occasion and emotions associated with the great man's farewell. (Read full preview)

Teams (from):

India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt. & wk), Shikhar Dhawan, M Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Pragyan Ojha, Amit Mishra, Ajinkya Rahane, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Rohit Sharma, Ishant Sharma.

West Indies: Darren Sammy (capt), Tino Best, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Sheldon Cotterrell, Narsingh Deonarine, Kirk Edwards, Chris Gayle, Veerasammy Permaul, Kieran Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Shannon Gabriel, Marlon Samuels, Shane Shillingford and Chadwick Walton.

Match starts at 9.30 am (IST).


"Sachin, Sachin!" the chant will be heard across the Wankhede Stadium as Sachin Tendulkar bids goodbye to international cricket. The greatest player of our generation has called it quits after a 24-year long career, glittered with records galore. (Cheer for Sachin)

The Master Blaster has captured they imagination of the viewing public since his initiation as a 16-year-old and is the best since Don Bradman. Brian Lara and Ricky Ponting have come close, but they do not match the longevity of the legend. (Will Sachin's records be broken?)

West Indies have the privilege of being Sachin's final opponents, but after being humbled in the first Test, their main priority will be to level the series. A five-day contest is what many hope and expect. A pivotal Sachin role in victory would rank alongside Snow White as the best fairytale in history. As Windies captain Darren Sammy suggests, every single bowler would be looking to take Sachin's wicket.

MS Dhoni though doesn't seem like the type who believes in fairytales and was more pragmatic in his approach to the game. He called for level heads with the hope that India 'can do it for Sachin'.

And The Man himself! What did he have to say? In his quiet demeanour, Sachin took to Twitter to thunk his fans for the support during the past 24 years. (Read: Thank you Mahi, for a great journey)

The stage has been set, the platform in place, the placards raised. Sachin Tendulkar will take centre-stage one final time at his home turf.

For the rest of us, it's a perfect time to commit crimes. As a poster at Sydney Cricket Ground once said, 'Commit all your crimes when Sachin is batting. You won't be noticed, because even the Lord is watching.'
