Mumbai, Nov 15: Just like the opening day of the second Test between India and West Indies, it was all about the retiring Sachin Tendulkar on Friday too.

Scorecard; Goodbye Sachin

On a day when Tendulkar completed 24 years in international cricket, the Master Blaster made 74 in what could be his final innings in 200th and last Test.

Vintage Tendulkar was on view and the fans thoroughly enjoyed every shot of his. The 40-year-old looked good to score a century but offspinner Narsingh Deonarine ended his stay.

India dominated the proceedings for the second successive day and were well poised to take the Test and complete a 2-0 whitewash over the visitors.

Here are the pictures from the second day.
