India’s next generation of batting talent flourished as West Indies were pummelled into submission but even the delectable strokeplay of Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli couldn’t wipe out the anti-climactic feel of much of the second day’s play.

During the first hour, however, Test cricket had rarely felt so alive.

With Sachin Tendulkar playing what could be his final Test innings, his legion of fans were put through the emotional wringer.

This whole series has been drenched in Tendulkar nostalgia, and every vintage shot he played today only highlighted what fans are going to miss in the days ahead.

Every misstep – like two attempted upper cuts off Tino Best – caused massive anxiety.

Fans were uncertain whether they wanted Tendulkar to be on strike – so they could lap up a few more of his shots – or at the non-striker’s end as the tension was close to unbearable when he batted.

But it was India’s day again, as they were bowled out for 495, a healthy lead of 313 before the West Indies top-order again showed little backbone, losing three wickets to see them 43-3 at the close of play, still 270 runs away from making India, and more importantly Tendulkar bat again.
