Sachin Tendulkar bowed out of Test cricket on Saturday as India wrapped up a convincing victory over West Indies inside three days in Mumbai.

The hosts took the final seven wickets in just 34.4 overs at the Wankhede Stadium, bowling out the men from the Caribbean for 187 to seal victory by an innings and 126 runs.

India win the series 2-0 after an innings and 51-run victory in Kolkata last week.

However, Tendulkar was the central figure on an emotional day that saw his amazing 24-year career come to an end after 200 Tests.

His first innings 74 proved to be the final knock of his career, the "Little Master" finishing with 15,921 runs at an average of 53.78.

India captain MS Dhoni even gave the 40-year-old a rare bowl when the tourists were eight wickets down, but he was unable to pick up a wicket in his two overs.

Resuming on 43/3, the West Indies crumbled with spinners Ravichandran Ashwin (4-89) and Pragyan Ojha (5-49) doing the damage once again, the latter picking up 10 wickets in the match.
