On this day Sachin Tendulkar played his last match and bid adieu to international cricket

On 16 nov,2013 Veteran cricketer Sachin Tendulakar had played his last match against West indies and bid adieu to his beautiful journey of 24 years in the international cricket. People also known him as ‘Master Blaster.’

Sachin made his Test debut in Karachi on November 15, 1989 against a Pakistan attack that had the likes of Imran Khan and Wasim Akram. Sachin Tendulkar became (and still is) India's youngest debutant in Test cricket, and went on to score over 34,000 runs in arguably the greatest career of all time.

in his last match he scored 74 runs. He was sent back to the pavilion by spinner Narsingh Deonarine who had him caught by Daren Sammy.

After the match, Tendulkar's speech at the Wankhede made cricketing fans all over the globe teary-eyed.
"Time has flown by quickly, but the memories you have left with me will always be with me forever and ever, and especially the chant of 'Sachin Sachin' which will reverberate in my ears till I stop breathing," Tendulkar had said.
Last year, Tendulkar had become the sixth Indian to be inducted in the ICC Hall of Fame. The 46-year-old had made his debut for India at the age of 16 in 1989.

He aggregated 34,357 runs across formats, which is more than 6,000 runs ahead of the second-placed former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara. Regarded as one of the greatest batsmen ever, Tendulkar holds the record of being the highest run-scorer of all time in international cricket, having notched up 18,426 runs in ODIs and 15,921 runs in Test matches, including a world record hundred centuries.

Sachin Tendulkar carried a nations hopes on his shoulders and became the game’s blue-eyed boy ever since he arrived on the scene. The nation shall always remain grateful to the worshipped cricketer who was deservingly called as ‘The God of cricket.’
