Riding on Tendulkar's ton, Mumbai reached really close on winning the match, but fell short ten runs short of the 53-run target, when the day's play ended.
Also, this day in 2004, Sachin equaled Sunil Gavaskar's record of 34 Test tons, as he scored 248 against Bangladesh at Dhaka. This incidentally remained his highest Test score. Thereafter, Tendulkar managed to reach 51 Test hundreds, a record no one has come close to braking. India registered a comfortable victory over the neighbours, and Irfan Pathan took 11 wickets in the match.
