Tendulkar, called a magician by rival skipper Kevin Pietersen, glanced the ball to the fine leg boundary to achieve a truly momentous win on the final day for his team and his 41st Test century, an unbeaten 103.
India won in the highest successful fourth innings chase in the sub-continent by making 387 for four, a target the England team, which resumed its India tour after returning home in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks, thought was unachievable.
