Sachin Tendulkar announces retirement after 200th test
Date : 10-10-2013
His final test will be played at his home city of Mumbai from 14th-18th of November, after 24 years of international cricket.
Tendulkar’s retirement will be an end of an era and his glorious batting will forever be etched in the memories of his opponents, supporters and fans all over the world.
Sachin Tendulkar currently is the leading centurion & run-scorer in Tests & ODIs and received the lavish praise of Don Bradman as being the best batsman in the modern era.
Tributes have already started to pour in. Someone that saw a lot of his batting from the non-striker end was former India skipper Sourav Ganguly.
‘At the age of 14, all he knew was batting and he would bat all day; the coach would actually have to pull him out of the nets. I think that's the reason he has been successful. It's not just the talent he was born with but what he did with it.’
To date, he has played 198 tests, scored 15837 runs with 51 centuries & 67 fifties. In addition, he scored 18426 ODI runs with 49 centuries and 96 fifties.
