The crowd were treated to the genius of Sachin Tendulkar, whose first innings of 72 off 27 balls demonstrated the brilliance of his batting, and helped him gain the man of the match award. It didn't matter that he had never played the game before. He took to it just as would be expected of a player of his stature, with all the class of a champion.
It didn't take him long to find the lucrative Max zone behind the bowler and he plundered the bowling as Tama Canning and Jacob Oram went for 25 runs each off successive overs.
