Default Sachin Tendulkar retires with innings India victory in Mumbai

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/cricket/24970365
Quote:
India legend Sachin Tendulkar said it was "hard to believe a wonderful journey" had ended as he bowed out of international cricket in Mumbai.

In his 200th Test match, the 40-year-old batting icon's final action came 24 years and one day after his Test debut.

Quote:
Tendulkar fact file
1973: Born in Bombay (now Mumbai) on 24 April
1989: Makes Test debut for India against Pakistan, aged 16
1990: Scores first Test century, against England
1998: Scores first double century for Mumbai against Australia
2005: Passes Sunil Gavaskar's record of highest number of Test centuries
2008: Becomes the highest run-scorer in Test cricket, passing West Indies' Brian Lara's mark of 11,953
2010: Becomes the most capped player in Test history
2011: Wins the World Cup with India
2012: Scores his 100th international century in ODI v Bangladesh in March; retires from ODIs in December
2013: Plays his 200th and final Test on his home ground in Mumbai
He bowled two overs but did not bat again as West Indies capitulated for 187 to lose by an innings and 126 runs.

India players formed a guard of honour for Tendulkar, who was presented with a host of awards in a lavish ceremony.

Revered throughout his distinguished career, a clearly emotional Tendulkar told a packed Wankhede Stadium: "My life between 22 yards for [more than] 22 years. It's hard to believe that wonderful journey is coming to end.

"It's getting a little difficult to talk but I'll manage. The most important person in my life, and I've missed him a lot since he passed away in 1999, is my father, without his guidance I don't think I'd be standing in front of you."

Tendulkar, who was dismissed for 74 in what proved to be his final Test innings on Friday, addressed his devoted fans in an on-field speech exceeding 20 minutes.

"When [captain] MS Dhoni presented me with the 200th Test match cap on day one I had a brief message for the team, I would like to repeat that," he told a mesmerised audience.

"I just feel that all of us are so, so fortunate and proud to be part of the Indian cricket team.
"Knowing all of you guys, I know you will continue to serve the nation in the right spirit, the right values.
India fans celebrate the career of Sachin Tendulkar
India fans celebrate the remarkable career of Test cricket's highest runscorer Sachin Tendulkar
"I believe we have been the lucky ones. We have been chosen by the almighty to serve this wonderful sport.
"Each generation gets this opportunity to merely take care of the sport and to serve it to the best of our ability.
"I have full faith in you that you will continue to serve the nation in the right spirit, to the best of your ability, and bring all the laurels to your country."

The International Cricket Council (ICC) paid tribute to Tendulkar, who played in 664 international matches, scored 34,357 runs and made 100 centuries.
Chief executive David Richardson, who played for South Africa against Tendulkar in the 1990s, said: "He was an exceptional cricketer who earned the utmost respect of his peers, team-mates, opponents and fans all over the world through his talent, performances and fierce competitiveness.
Sporting geniuses like Sachin are rare phenomenons and we are privileged to have seen him in action. On behalf of the ICC and the entire cricketing family, I thank Sachin for his unprecedented services to our sport and we wish him well in the future."

The Windies began day three on 43-3, 270 runs from making India bat again, but faint hopes of a second innings for Tendulkar were thwarted as the tourists capitulated again and were all out before lunch.

It was the second successive innings victory for India, and their comprehensive 2-0 series victory lifts them above England into second place in the Test rankings

Wouldn't be surprised, they seem to make shrines for everyone.

Stupid waste of money that can utilised for better purposes if you ask me, but hey, to each his own!

Imran Khan has become a serious wheelin' dealing Jihad-mongering pseudo-liberal these days, his party came into power in Khyber Pakhtunwa methinks and staged a blocking of NATO supply routes to A-stan.
