December, 10 2005. That was the last time Tendulkar scored a test ton. Ten test matches and 17 innings later, he managed to score another century – but he just managed to get there. He got out for 101 trying to go for a pull shot to a ball bowled outside the off stump.
Ganguly also got to a hundred before he got out in similar fashion. India have squandered what would have been a wonderful position if both wickets had remained intact. At the time of writing this post, Dhoni was looking good having scored 34 of 29 balls. It remains to be seen if Dhoni and the tail can take the score to 400 and beyond.
Quite disappointed, actually. I was expecting big hundreds from both Saurav and Sachin…
