MELBOURNE, Australia (AP)—Sachin Tendulkar was dismissed in the last over of the day, falling short of his elusive 100th international century but giving India a strong start to it first innings on Tuesday's second day of the first test against Australia.

Peter Siddle bowled Tendulkar for 73 to leave India on 214-3 at stumps in reply to Australia's first-innings 333.

The wicket ended a 117-run partnership between Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid for the third wicket.

The 38-year-old Tendulkar rarely looked troubled by the Australian bowling attack as he reached his 50 off 55 balls with six boundaries and a six.

Dravid was on 68 at stumps, with night watchman Ishant Sharma yet to score.
