Sachin Tendulkar on October 10, 2013 announced his decision to retire from international cricket after he plays his record 200th Test against West Indies in November.
"I have been living this dream every day for the last 24 years. It’s hard for me to imagine a life without playing cricket because it’s all I have ever done since I was 11 years old," Tendulkar said in a statement. [CYCSPL]
