Farewell to 'The Little Master'
, November 16, 2013
Cricket fans holding an Indian national flag shout slogans in front of a billboard of cricketer Sachin Tendulkar outside a stadium in Mumbai. Cricket-crazy India had a lump in the throat as its favourite son, Tendulkar, walked out for one last time on November 16 after winning the game he had dominated for nearly a quarter of a century. The 'Little Master' brought the curtain down on a glittering 24-year career at the age of 40 when he played his 200th test match, against West Indies, at his home ground. The billboard reads, "Never say goodbye". Reuters/Danish Siddiqui
