Playing his 199th and penultimate Test match, Sachin Tendulkar was in the limelight even before he got an opportunity to bat. Tendulkar picked wicket of Shane Shillingford just before tea to complete 200 wickets in ODIs and Tests combined together. This achievement is an addition to his long list of achievements which includes the 100 international tons.
Just one over before tea on Day One in the first Test at Eden Gardens, MS Dhoni handed the ball to Tendulkar. With his leg-breaks, he generated good turn to trouble the batsman. The wicket finally came when Shillingford played for the turn and the ball zipped straight to hit his pads.
