The Boss is Back-Sachin's century no. 40
Sachin made a strong comeback to the Indian team after a long lay off due to injury. He punished the Weat Indian bowlers mercilessly with some superb shots. He scored 141 runs and carried the bat through the innings(he remained notout).

This was just the second time in his career when he opened the innings and remained notout till the end. He was provided good support by Irfan Pathan who scored a swashbuckling 64. India posted 309/5 in 50 overs.

Unfortunately rain and Gayle played spoilsport. West Indies were 141/2 at the end of 20 overs when rain stopped the proceedings. The Duckworth/Lewis rule was enforced and the West Indins were declared the winners by 29 runs.

Hope Sachin plays even better against the Aussies and that it does not rain and cause problems.
