Retiring cricket legend given out in controversial fashion.

Sachin Tendulkar’s final Test series has seen the Little Master dismissed cheaply in controversial circumstances.

Tendulkar was out for 10 early on day two of the first Test against West Indies, given out lbw to spinner Shane Shillingford, who picked up four of the first five India wickets to fall.

Replays showed the ball was clearly going over the top of the stumps, providing a hefty slice of irony given the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s stance on the decision review system (DRS) means it’s not in use during Tests in which India plays.

Playing in his 199th Test, Tendulkar was greeted by a huge roar from local fans when he walked out to bat following the dismissal of opener Murali Vijay.

But just a few minutes later the crowd was in shock as umpire Nigel Llong raised his finger, and there was more joy for West Indies as Shillingford ripped through India’s middle order to leave them struggling at 5-119 in reply to West Indies total of 234 just before lunch.

The whole country of India is in celebration of Tendulkar’s career after he indicated he will step away from the game that has made him a household name around the world.
