Bad day for Windies

VADODARA, India (CMC) – The little master Sachin Tendulkar stroked his 41st One-Day International ton and helped steer India to a massive 160-run victory over West Indies in the last game of the four-match pre-Cricket World Cup series yesterday.
Sent to bat, the Indians piled up 341-3 off 50 overs and West Indies never threatened the target, crashing to 181 all out off 41.4 overs in reply at the IPCL Sports Complex Ground.
The emphatic triumph, a huge boost in their build-up for CWC 2007 in the Caribbean in March and April, gave India the series, 3-1.
Predictably, Tendulkar was named man-of-the-match, and he also collected the man-of-the-series prize after leading his team’s batting average at 63.6.
Set a daunting 342 to win, West Indies slipped to 32-2 and never mounted a serious challenge throughout their innings.
