Flashback To 2010 – Tendulkar's Brilliant 200 Leaves Aussies Guessing In The Garden City

Sachin Tendulkar loves playing Australia so when he produces a masterclass it hardly comes as a surprise. 



In the second Test in Bangalore in 2010, Sachin once again displayed the skill that makes him the best batsman in the world.

Coming in at 38/2, he settled in quickly as the runs began to flow off the bat. They came at a steady pace and even as Ricky Ponting kept on chopping and changing the field, the Master Blaster found the gaps with ease.



Such was his confidence, on 93 he hit 2 sixes to reach his hundred. When one considers he had been out for 98 in the previous Test, it shows just how much he wanted to get to three figures.

But the man was not done yet. Despite losing Murali Vijay (139) after a 318-run 3rd wicket partnership, Sachin marched on towards greater things.



His perseverance paid off and a double hundred was achieved. His value to the team was once again proven when his dismissal saw India fall from 486/5 to 495 all out.

Sachin made 214 in 363 balls. Other than those 2 sixes, he hit 22 fours. What made this innings special in the long run was that it would be his last hundred against Australia and his last double hundred ever.
