Stand-in skipper Rahul Dravid declared the Indian innings closed in Multan on Day 2 of the first Test against Pakistan when Yuvraj Singh was dismissed with the team's total on 675.

But the decision has led to a controversy because master batsman Sachin Tendulkar, who notched his 33rd Test century earlier in the day, was left stranded six runs short of his fourth double hundred.

Should Tendulkar have been allowed a couple of overs more to reach the landmark?
