West Indies collapsed to an innings and 51-run defeat inside three days in the opening Test at Kolkata leaving the spectators and Television viewers deprived of watching Sachin Tendulkar bat for one last time.
India fought back superbly from a disastrous position of 83 for 5 to end up Day 2 at 354 for 6 in the First Test at Eden Gardens. Rohit Sharma rescued the hosts with a century on Test Debut while getting admirable support from off-spinner R Ashwin, who is just eight runs short of his 2nd Test hundred.
