No 23: An extract from ESPNcricinfo's report from the day: Tendulkar made 122 against Zimbabwe at the Kotla in 2000, John Wright's first Test as India coach. "Earlier, Tendulkar was visibly miffed with himself. On a flat batting track, against a friendly Zimbabwean attack, he got himself out for just 122. The way Tendulkar was batting, that should have been just the beginning. After flaying Brian Strang for three boundaries in the first over of the day." www.200th.in
