Sachin Tendulkar to play last match at Wankhede

Sachin Tendulkar to play last match at Wankhede
It is now official Sachin Tendulkar will play his last international match at the Wankhede on 14th- 18th November 2013 against the touring West Indies squad. The second test scheduled to be played at the Wankhede will bring down the curtains on a prolific twenty four year cricketing career. 
 
Incidentally Sachin made his first class debut on the same ground almost 25 years ago. The 40 year old batsman had asked the board to give him the opportunity to play his final international match before his home crowd. The battle between local associations to bag the hoisting rights for this last match also made headlines in the past few days leading to this BCCI decision. 
 
The match played at Wankhede will be the batting maestro’s 200 test match. In a career spanning well over 24 years Sachin has accumulated 15,837 in 198 tests with 51 test centuries. The nearest competitor next to him in terms of matches is South Africa’s Jacques Kallis with 163 tests. 
 
Sachin Tendulkar stands tall over former greats as well as contemporaries alike in terms of records. The maestro holds the record for most runs in tests (15,837) and one day internationals (18,426) and also the most hundreds in both formats. 
 
Certainly so strong is the presence of this cricketer that post the test at Wankhede, Cricket would be poorer without the services of the great Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar.
