Tendulkar falls short in Indian win
Thursday 09 February 2012
India recorded a four-wicket victory over Sri Lanka at the Waca in Perth yesterday, although Sachin Tendulkar again fell short of his 100th international hundred.
India seemed to be cruising to their target of 234 before a middle-order collapse saw them slump to 181 for 6. But Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin put on an unbeaten 53-run seventh-wicket stand to win with 20 balls to spare.
Tendulkar was dismissed when he chopped the ball onto his stumps for 48 off 63 balls. The 38-year-old's quest for his 100th century has now gone on for nearly a year and included six one-day and 21 Test innings.
Australia fast bowler Mitchell Johnson said yesterday he is interested in joining Glamorgan for this summer's Friends Life t20. "I'm just waiting for a call from them," he said.
