James Anderson today dismissed India great Sachin Tendulkar for the ninth time in Tests, breaking Muttiah Muralitharan's record total.

Here, we take a look back over Anderson's successes against the "Little Master".

March 19, 2006, Mumbai

A rare false shot from Tendulkar gifted Anderson his wicket for the first time. Having made only one, the batsman drove loosely outside off stump and the ball took the toe of his bat and went through to wicketkeeper Geraint Jones.

Umpire Steve Bucknor adjudged Anderson's full inswinger, which hit Tendulkar on the pad as he looked to drive through the leg side, would have clipped leg stump and sent him on his way lbw for 37.

August 10 & 12, 2007, The Oval

Anderson established his dominance over Tendulkar by taking his wicket in each innings, first via a regulation edge to Andrew Strauss at slip when on 82 and then bowled off the inside edge for one second time around.

Another loose edge saw Tendulkar depart for five, with Graeme Swann at gully the catcher on this occasion.

July 25, 2011, Lord's

Tendulkar's likely last innings at Lord's brought him just 12 runs before Anderson nipped one past his inside edge to dismiss him lbw.

In the second Test of the same series, Tendulkar managed 56 in a forlorn fourth-innings chase before shouldering arms to a big inswinger which trapped him leg before once again.

Tendulkar made 76 before an excellent outswinger from Anderson caught his outside edge and was held by a tumbling Matt Prior behind the stumps.

Tendulkar made just two before Anderson got one to nip back off the seam, deflect off a thin inside edge and on to middle stump.
