India had already won the test series 2-0 coming in to the final test at Eden Gardens. West Indies, by taking a handy first innings lead of 139 runs put tremendous pressure on India. At one stage, India was reduced to 87 for 4 in the second innings. This is when Sachin and Laxman came together and punctured West Indies hopes once and for all. Sachin's match-saving knock lasted 7 hours and was laced with 26 superb hits to the fence. This match was a draw at the end.
