Sachin Tendulkar scored an amazing knock of 124 runs studded with 3 sixers and India finished the day at 309 for 5 on the first day of the fourth test against Australia today.Australian fielding was unusually below par today and Indians capitalised on it with Laxman being dropped by Gilchrist on 37 runs.Sehwag and Laxman displayed both character and class to make 63 and 51 runs respectivley.The day however belonged to the Bombay bomber who reserved his best day of the series at the Adeleide Oval.The ease with which he smashed the Australian bowling reminded everybody that he is still the best batsman in the world.India brought Harbhajan singh in place of opener Wasim Jaffer while Brad Hogg replaced Tait for Aussies.Ganguly and Sehwag were once again given out under contrevosial circumstances.
