Nothing Lasts Forever

Nothing lasts forever, not even the history-soaked career of Sachin Tendulkar, the greatest cricket player India ever produced.  The so-called ‘Little Master,’ Tendulkar, the only player to reach 100 international centuries, the highest Test run scorer of all time, is playing his last game – and going out in a blaze of glory.

Tendulkar, who is 40, said he’s calling it quits after Team India’s 2nd Test against the West Indies on Nov. 13 – the 200th Test match of his long career.

Tendulkar’s last match ends a monumentally successful career that began 24 years ago and seen the popular, right-handed batsman score a record 100 centuries in Tests and ODIs since he made his debut for Team India in 1989.

Tendulkar, who has played cricket since he was 11, said he’s been more than fortunate, because it’s all he ever wanted to do.

“All my life, I have had a dream of playing cricket for India,” he told CNN.  “I have been living this dream every day for the last 24 years.”
