Tendulkar Passes Another Milestone As India Dominate

Sachin Tendulkar scored his 11,000th test run as India closed day two of the second test against England some 56 runs ahead at Trent Bridge.

Having bowled England out for 198, half-centuries from Wasim Jaffer, Dinesh Karthik and Tendulkar set India up for a commanding total, with them closing the day on 254 for 3.

Jaffer and Karthik set the tone with a 147-run opening partnership before Jaffer was caught behind, gloving a Chris Tremlett delivery to Matt Prior, for 62, shortly before tea.

Karthik followed not long after for 77, with the only other wicket to fall that of captain Rahul Dravid, caught by Ian Bell to give Monty Panesar his second wicket, for 37.

Tendulkar moved to 57 not out by the close; with him is Saurav Ganguly, on four.

Earlier, Zaheer Khan, who finished with four for 59, and Anil Kumble, with three for 32, swiftly ripped England's lower order after some resistance from Chris Tremlett (20) and Ryan Sidebottom (18 not out) threatened to take England past the two hundred mark.

England had resumed this morning on 169 for 7 after Zaheer Khan had played a large part in reducing England's innings to rubble on day one, with only Alastair Cook making a score of any note, with 43.
