Indian great Sachin Tendulkar has been dismissed for 74 in what is likely to be his final Test innings.

Tendulkar, playing his 200th and final Test, resumed his innings at 38 on Friday, bringing up his half century in the first session before being dismissed.

India were eventually bowled out on day two for 495, with Cheteshwar Pujara (113) and Rohit Sharma (111no) leading the way.

At stumps the West Indies were struggling at 3-43, still some 270 runs short of making India bat again, making the prospect of seeing Tendulkar at the crease again unlikely.

Tendulkar survived a big shout for caught behind when on 47 but the appeal was turned down.

In the end, he tried to cut a delivery from Narsingh Deonarine but caught a thick edge to Darren Sammy at first slip, prompting a brief silence from the packed crowds at Wankhede Stadium before the ovation began.

His innings of 74 off 188 deliveries included 12 boundaries and he combined with Pujara for a partnership of 144.
