Tests matches
Sachin Tendulkar has been dismissed the most by Muthiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka = 8 times from 18 tests they've played against each other. Sachin averages relatively lower at 44 per innings whenever Muralitharan is in his opposition. James Anderson, on 5th Dec, equaled Muralitharan, showing Tendulkar way to Eden Gardens pavilion. Here's a list of bowlers who have got Sachin Tendulkar out more than 5 times in test cricket :-

Muthiah Muralitharan (Sri Lanka) = 8 outs, 18 tests.
James Anderson (England) = 8 outs, 13 tests.
Glenn McGrath (Australia) = 6 outs, 9 tests.
Jason Gillespie (Australia) = 6 outs, 7 tests.
Brett Lee (Australia) = 5 outs, 11 tests.
Hensie Cronje (South Africa) = 5 outs, 11 tests.
Allan Donald (South Africa) = 5 outs, 11 tests.
