The master blaster smashed the South-African bowlers all around the park with his effortless timing.

The legendary batsman showed some great footwork and looked fluent while stroking the ball on the back-foot as well as the front foot. Tendulkar played some fine late cuts when the wicket got slow and was spot on as far as his shot selection was concerned. Tendulkar hit 25 boundaries and three sixes. Tendulkar’s knock helped India score 401. India won the game by 148 runs.
