    Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar got a touching reception while walking out to bat for probably the last time at Lord's as captain of the MCC XI.

    It was the Lord's bicentenary celebration match between the MCC and Rest of the World XI, and Tendulkar hardly looked rusty before being dismissed by Muttiah Muralitharan for 44 in just 45 balls. MCC, though, went on to win the match chasing 293 - thanks to Aaron Finch's spectacular knock of 181 in just 145 balls.
