Photo: Mumbai 1996
Alert at slip
Sachin Tendulkar mostly fielded in the outfield in the latter part of his career but in the early years, he was often stationed in the slips.
In this photo he fields a shot from Mark Taylor in the group match of the 1996 World Cup in Mumbai. Taylor scored 59 as Australia piled up 258 in 50 overs.
In reply, Tendulkar blazed a 84-ball 90 before being stumped off Mark Waugh's bowling. India fell short by 16 runs. Both teams made the semi-final, though, and both were outdone by Sri Lanka - India in the semi-final and Australia in the final.
