Tendulkar falls, India reach 282/3 at lunch

Mumbai, Nov 15 (IANS) India reached 282 for three and took a lead of 100 runs at lunch on day two of the second Test against the West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium here Friday.

Sachin Tendulkar (74) and Cheteshwar Pujara (85 batting) were the key contributors as India lost just one wicket in the pre-lunch session.

Tendulkar failed to break the 15-year-old jinx of not scoring a century at his home ground as he was done in by some extra bounce from spinner Narsingh Deonarine and the thick edge flew quickly to skipper Darren Sammy at first slip, and India were reduced to 221 for three in the first innings, a lead of 39 runs.
