Rajneesh Gupta | December 13, 2004 18:46 IST

It is India's second biggest in all Tests -- home or abroad.

Tendulkar's unique distinction

Bangladesh were bowled out for 184 and 202 in their two innings of the first Test at Dhaka. The intriguing fact associated with Bangladesh's performance is that Tendulkar alone outscored them in either innings. This was the only third such instance for India.
