Mumbaikars did not need an alarm clock on Friday. Waking up with "Sachin Sachin..." still ringing in their ears, all roads lead to the Wankhede Stadium as fans pray for a Sachin Tendulkar century in his final innings in Test cricket.

Against the West Indies in the Master Blaster's 200th Test, India are at 157/2, a mere 25 runs behind the visitors' first innings total of 182. Sachin is batting on a sublime 38 with Cheteshwar Pujara - who had the best seat in the house last evening - on a composed 34.

Two young fans were sporting a T-shirt each that said 'God never retires' at the stadium last evening. On Friday, a billion others will be holding the same sentiment with Sachin at the crease as each run from the Master's blade is cheered.
