Tendulkar in a statement to the BCCI chief N Srinivasan said that he was glad to be a part of world cup winning team.
 
He was quoted by NDTV as saying, “I have decided to retire from the One Day format of the game. I feel blessed to have fulfilled the dream of being part of a World Cup wining Indian team.
 
“The preparatory process to defend the World Cup in 2015 should begin early and in right earnest. I would like to wish the team all the very best for the future. I am eternally grateful to all my well wishers for their unconditional support and love over the years.”
