Record-breaking Sachin Tendulkar was the first wicket to fall at the 2011 World Cup on Saturday when he was run-out following a crazy mix-up with opening partner Virender Sehwag against Bangladesh.

Tendulkar, on 28, pushed the ball to mid-on and went for a quick single off the fifth ball of the 11th over of the tournament opener but Sehwag failed to respond leaving both men at the non-striker's end.

Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan threw in for wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim to remove the bails.

India had reached to 69 without loss at the time.
