SACHIN TENDULKAR AFTER ANNOUNCE RETIREMENT
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.
