Rampaul stops Sachin 6 short

Mumbai, India -- Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar fell short of his 100th international century once again on Friday after being dismissed for 94 on the fourth morning of the third and final Test against West Indies.

The 38-year-old, unbeaten on 67 overnight, hit three boundaries and a six in the session and looked set to secure the coveted ton that has eluded him since he last made three figures in the ICC Cricket World Cup in April.

But his innings was cut short once again, to the stunned silence of a sizeable crowd at his home Wankhede Stadium ground, when he edged pacer Ravi Rampaul to West Indies captain Darren Sammy at second slip, leaving the hosts on 321-5. They are replying to 590 made by West Indies in the first innings.

Rampaul celebrated by pumping his chest and placing his hand over the West Indies crest. He was joined by other team-mates and they enjoyed the moment.
