Winning farewell for Sachin Tendulkar

Just like the first Test in Kolkata, West Indies put up a pathetic batting display. It was the same story from Eden Gardens that repeated.

In the first Test too, India had rolled over West Indies in three days. And this Test lasted two days and just one session into the third.

Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha completed a 10-wicket match haul to trigger West Indies collapse. Today, he ended with figures of 5/49.

West Indies had started the third day at 43/3, still 270 behind. After an aggressive start by Chris Gayle, they just failed again. They were bowled out for 187 in 47 overs.

An emotional Tendulkar walked off the field, with tears in his eyes. This was his 200th and final Test.
