Jan 31st Down the years,Tendulkar innings went on Vain

On this day in 1999

The 1st Test between Pakistan and India for 9 years ended on this day in Chennai, and it was once a classic. A see-saw game went this way and that, and when 18-year-old Shahid Afridi belted 141 to take Pakistan to 275 for 4 (a lead of 263), the tourists were in cost. Then Venkatesh Prasad took 5 for zero in 18 balls and India were left to chase 271. They collapsed to 81-5 earlier than Sachin Tendulkar, with a wonderful 136, took them to 254 for six – simply 17 faraway from victory. When Tendulkar holed out to Saqlain Mushtaq, the tail was once swept away. Saqlain completed with ten wickets as Pakistan won by 12 runs.
