The correct answer is Ian Botham.
Tendulkar had scored a painstaking 35 against England at the WACA (Perth) and did not look very comfortable playing Botham. The bowler finally made him edge one to wicketkeeper Alex Stewart. England went on to win the match which marked an ominous start to India's eventually disappointing campaign in 1992.

4. Tendulkar is a bit more than a part-time bowler and the 154 wickets he has to his name in ODIs speak about his abilities with the ball. The maestro has two five-wicket hauls to his credit, both having come at the same stadium. Identify this venue?
a. Ferozeshah Kotla (New Delhi)
b. Sharjah Stadium (UAE)
c. Nehru Stadium (Kochi)

Wrong! Try again.
Wrong!
The correct answer is Nehru Stadium (Kochi).
Tendulkar's first fiver (five for 32) came against Steve Waugh's Australian team in April 1998 in the Pepsi Triangular series. All his five victims were capable batsmen -- Michael Bevan, Waugh, Darren Lehmann, Tom Moody and Damien Martyn. His second five-wicket haul also came in Kochi seven years later in April 2005, when he snared five for 50 against Pakistan. For the record, both were match-winning efforts.
