Details of Tendulkar's last three dismissals: Second innings, Oval Test: Tim Bresnan snared him with a ball that was drifting in from off stump.

Tendulkar (91) played across the line and was trapped lbw. However, replays showed that the ball was just about clipping the leg stump.

First innings, Delhi Test: Fidel Edwards got him with one that nipped in briskly from a fullish length. Tendulkar was rapped on the pads in front of leg. Replays indicated it was the right call.

Second innings, Delhi Test: Tendulkar's eyes lit up when he saw a juicy short length ball calling to be hammered to the fence. Tendulkar went for the pull but the ball skid a little and struck him in front of middle and leg. He appeared plumb in front.
