The leading run-scorer in Test cricket history and undoubtedly one of the greatest batsmen to have ever graced the field, India’s Sachin Tendulkar, is playing his last innings at the Wankhede stadium, in Mumbai, India.
Sachin announced his retirement from the 5-day format of the game in October this year. Lovingly called the Little Master, Tendulkar set a new world record by becoming the first cricketer to play 200 test matches in the history of Test cricket.
Ever since announcing his retirement, Sachin frenzy has gripped cricket crazy India. The Indian government released two commemorative stamps, while locally schools, organizations, even Bollywood celebrities celebrated the official retirement of one of the most talented players cricket has seen in its 136-year history.
