    • Virat Kohli scored a useful 57 before falling against the run of play after lunch. (BCCI)

    • Tendulkar brought up his 68th Test half-century to a deafening applause, and the crowd cheered him on to get to triple figures.

    • Pujara brought up his fifth Test century to extend India's lead but couldn't go past 113. (BCCI)

    • Shane Shillingford once again proved the best West Indies bowler taking four wickets on day two. (BCCI)

    • Best tried his best, with a bit of sledging as well, to get the great man out. Tendulkar enjoyed it and also nudged the West Indian pacer naughtily at the end of an over.

    • Sachin and Cheteshwar Pujara added 100-plus runs for the third wicket to give India control on the second morning.

    • Tendulkar fell for 74 when he edged spinner Narsingh Deonarine to the slips where Darren Sammy took the catch, which put the master on his way to probably his last walk off a cricket field.

    • Darren Sammy being congratulated by Denesh Ramdin after he caught Tendulkar in the slips.

    • Sachin Tendulkar with the legendary Australian legspinner Shane Warne ahead of the start of day two.

    • Sachin doing some stretching exercises before he resumed his innings at his overnight score of 38.

    • Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami frustrated the West Indies with an 80-run stand for the last wicket, which helped Rohit get to his hundred and take India's lead past 300. (BCCI)

    • West Indies fast bowler Tino Best tried hard all day through but was guilty of repeatedly bowling the wrong line and length. (BCCI)

    • Playing only his second innings in Test cricket, Rohit Sharma scored his second hundred on the trot and remained unbeaten on 111. (BCCI)

    • After his three wickets in the first innings, R Ashwin has already claimed two in West Indies' second essay. (BCCI)

    • Darren Bravo (11) couldn't contribute this time as well as he was the third wicket to fall for West Indies on Day 2. (BCCI)

    • The whole Wankhede Stadium and perhaps the whole of India stood up to applaud Sachin Tendulkar as he walked off with a 74 against his name in maybe his last innings in cricket.
