Regardless of not a big show from Master Blaster after his dismissal on a minimal 10 runs, fans applauded his presence as a cricketer. Although a little bit disappointment was felt amongst them for not seeing their Star Cricketer scoring big but not a single time they stopped to give a round of applause the instant they saw Sachin from a close angle.

Indian decimated West Indies by an innings and 51 runs and this biggest win has its own relevancy and importance. It is because most of the players in the team are young and a few among them like Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami have just made their debut in Test match zone.

As soon as West Indies lost their last wicket, crowd started to enjoy to the fullest and waved the Indian flag. After having a glance over the number of viewers present in the stadium, it was hard to believe that simply a test match was going on.

Sachin’s memorable 199th Test :– Indian team gave a beautiful gift to ‘God of Cricket’ by crushing West Indies from a big margin. The 5-day match ended in just three days with Rohit Sharma and R Ashwin posting a record partnership for 7th wicket and Shami & Ashwin bowling good spells and taking 5 and 3 wickets, respectively.

Path to victory came early in Kolkata but things can differ at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Since India is leading the series by 1-0, challenge now increases for the guest team. To add more complexities for West Indies, players of Indian team would try to pour their best in the match so to give a memorable farewell to Sachin Tendulkar, who has made India proud in his odyssey of creating terrific records.
