Clarke relishes key Tendulkar wicket

Captain Michael Clarke on Friday savoured taking Sachin Tendulkar’s prized wicket to send India tumbling to another heavy Test defeat and deny the tourists a first-ever series win in Australia. Clarke’s dismissal of the “Little Master”, in menacing form on 80, in the 79th over saw Test cricket’s greatest runscorer again denied his 100th international century. Tendulkar has been stranded on 99 Test and ODI centuries since scoring 111 against South Africa in the World Cup in March. The wicket, Clarke’s 14th Indian wicket in his career Test haul of 24, was the icing on the cake after the Australian skipper’s unbeaten 329 in the first innings made him the undisputed man-of-the-match.
