Sachin's swansong

Sky Bet make Sachin Tendulkar a 6/1 shot to end his glittering international career with a fairytale century in Mumbai

Sachin Tendulkar is 6/1 with Sky Bet to sign off his international career in fairytale fashion with a century in Thursday's second Test against the West Indies.

The 'Little Master' competes in his 200th Test match but will need to find form which has previously eluded him in internationals at the Wankhede Stadium.

In 10 Test appearances at his home venue, Tendulkar has managed just one century, although it is expected the pitch should play to the batsman's advantage this time, and he is also available at a price boosted 11/2 to be India's top first-innings runscorer.

The second day of the Test (Friday) will see Tendulkar celebrate exactly 24-years since his international debut, in which time he has scored 51 Test centuries, 30 more than the rest of India's starting team from the first Test combined, an average in excess of 50 and over 15,000 Test runs.

As, arguably, the greatest batsman in the history of the game bows out the West Indies bowling attack will be lining up to claim his scalp.

Shane Shillingford claimed his wicket in the Kolkata Test and is the 6/4 favourite to take Tendulkar's final wicket, while Tino Best is available at 7/2 and Chris Gayle is as long as 33/1 to end the 40-year-old's career.

A collection of specials on Tendulkar's final innings dismissal method are also available with bowled 11/4, caught keeper 9/2 and LBW 100/30 among the selections.

As India embark on a new era of international cricket they are 4/7 with Sky Bet to send off the nation's favourite son with a victory, with a success for the tourists an 8/1 chance.
