Match : India V Australia
Venue : 2008 tri-series in Australia featuring India, Australia and Sri Lanka
For all those who questioned Sachin's temperament on big occasions, this inning served as the perfect response from the little master. Chasing 240 to take a crucial lead in the best-of-three finals, Sachin played right through the chase to help India ease past the 240-mark with 4 overs remaining. The fact that Sachin's 117 only had 10 hits to the fence just shows how calculated his whole approach was.
