LAHLI - Sachin Tendulkar notched up his 115th first-class fifty in his final Ranji Trophy innings versus Haryana Tuesday. This is also his 19th half-century in Ranji Trophy. Walking in to a rapturous welcome, Tendulkar looked tentative to begin with in his final Ranji innings. He faced Mohit Sharma - a bowler who had dismissed him on five two days earlier. The veteran batsman though managed to gradually negotiate the extra bounce with ease. Each and every shot from the heavy blade of Tendulkar was cheered by the locals though the runs also meant that their team was being forced to the narrow lanes of defeat. Abhishek Nayar and Tendulkar stitched together a key partnership as one man's final journey also became another's strong statement of intent!–Agencies
