Last call for the 'Little Master'

Today is like the days that Wayne Gretzky and Michael Jordan called it quits.
SACHIN TENDULKAR, who has been more of an idol than a cricketer, announced today that the two matches he plays for INDIA against WEST INDIES next month will be his last.
The 40-year-old retired from one-day internationals last year.
His departure marks the end of an incredible era for the sport.
Bombay-born and nicknamed "Little Master," the 5-foot-5 Tendulkar towered over his contemporaries. He has scored 15,837 runs in his 198 Test matches to date. He holds the records for most hundreds in both Tests and ODIs.
Reaction to Tendulkar's decision has come from all corners of the globe. At home in India, former Test cricketer Kirti Azad told Asian News International:
"(It's) difficult to imagine the Indian cricket team without him, sad day for cricket."
