The G.O.D of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar has declared that he is retiring after his 200th Test Match. He posted on Facebook – All my life I have had a dream of playing cricket for India. 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. It’s been a huge honour to have represented my country and played all over the world. I look forward to playing my 200th Test Match on home soil, as I call it a day.
I thank the BCCI for everything over the years and for permitting me to move on when my heart feels it’s time! I thank my family for their patience and understanding. Most of all, I thank my fans and well-wishers who through their prayers and wishes have given me the strength to go out and perform at my best.
This news has depressed all his fans because they will now get to witness only 2 more matches. His fan list has people from all age groups and all genre.
One of the biggest fans of this Master Blaster is none other than ‘The Baadshah Of Bollywood’ – Shahrukh Khan. He took to a social networking site Twitter to express his disappointment and tweeted, “Can’t bear Cricket without Sachin”.
Well Cricket won’t be as much fun without Sachin and we all are diappointed. But as they say, “All good things come to an end”.
