Although mainly fielding in the mid-on and mid-off region, Tendulkar also came in to bowl towards the end of the second session of play. He struck immediately when he trapped Shane Shillingford LBW to make the batsman his 46th Test victim.
Eden Gardens erupted in joyous celebrations as teammates rushed to Tendulkar to congratulate him on his 201st international wicket.
