The pair of Tendulkar and Sehwag gave a firing start in their run chase with the latter thrashing pacer Tino Best for back-to-back boundaries in the first over.
If Sehwag was devastating, Tendulkar was pleasing to the eyes in his stroke-making. The duo stitched together an 83-run stand for the opening wicket before Tendulkar departed in 11th over.
Earlier, India legends bowled beautifully to restrict West Indies legend to 150 for eight after the host captain Tendulkar put them into bat after winning the toss.
If not for Windies veteran and their saviour Shivnarine Chanderpaul's 61-run knock off 41 balls, the visitors would have struggled to reach the total.
Opener Darren Ganga was the second highest run-getter after Chanderpaul with a 24-ball 32 which included five boundaries.
Other than Chanderpaul and Ganga none of the West Indian batsmen could breach the 20-run mark. Ganga who gave a positive start to the Windies succumbed to a beauty from Zaheer Khan that castled the latter's stump.
Brian Lara came in next and he charged Khan immediately with a beautiful boundary over covers followed by a push to the point boundary.
As his eyes were setting in, Lara failed to connect an Irfan Pathan's slower delivery which saw him get stumped for 17. This came after the south-paw hit the medium-pacer through an eye pleasing cover drive to the fence.
