    Sachin Tendulkar's last day on the cricket field

    • The Indian team, including the backroom staff, gathered for a team photo on the momentous occasion.

    • Sachin led the team onto the field on Day 3 of the second Test, which turned out to be his last as India went on to beat the Windies by an innings and 126 runs.

    • The last cricket action for Sachin came in the form of bowling his legspinners when MS Dhoni threw the ball to him for a couple of overs, largely on public demand as the crowd continued to shout 'We Want Sachin',
