Shock announcement – Tendulkar retires from Test Cricket!

After withdrawing from the second test due to injury, Tendulkar made a surprise announcement today that he is retiring from Test Cricket. He said that although he still enjoyed playing the game, his body had taken a toll and it was time he retired from the longer version of the game.

Fans in Mumbai and the rest of India were shocked at his surprise announcement and have urged him to reconsider.

He said that he will continue to play for India in the the ODI series and lead Mumbai in the IPL Twenty20 Championship. BCCI supremo Sharad Pawar has also urged Tendulkar to reconsider, although it is unlikely that he will. BCCI has also announced that they are  planning a grand farewell for him in Ahmedabad, where the second test is due to start.

  3. Either it an April Fools day joke


    Well timed for the following reason

    Don Bradnan’s last innings score is the same as Sachin Tendulkar’s last innings score

    Just like Mark Taylor declared his innings against Pakistan to coincide with Don Bradman’s highest score!!!!
