11 of 14;  DLF cup vs West Indies, Played at Kinrara Academy Oval, Kuala Lumpur

India won the toss and batted first. Sachin Tendulkar was the back bone of the indian Innings, yet another time.

Indian score was 309 and Sachin scored 141 out of this. and he was unbeaten on 141. Only one other batsman in the team scored a fifty plus.

This video posted by robelinda will give you the idea of that pitch! See this 1:40 mins video!

Tony Greig said after Dhoni's wicket, "I think this sort of thing gives you some idea of how well Tendulkar has played"

It was a pitch which was not at all god for batting and it had un even bounce as well. But the bowlers could not dismiss him almost 25 overs were bowled to Sachin.

Sachin's performance in the last overs gave India this score. He scored 32 runs in the last 15 balls he played! Including 4 Sixers!

West Indies won the match by chasing 141 (D/L) It is not the fault of Sachin Tendulkar that India ended up on the losing side even when he got a ton for the side. Sachin is just 1 among the 11 players playing for the team. His duty is to score runs, and did it well in those 16 occasions, with incredible strike rates in almost all occasions!
