New York: Nov 15, 2013 

Accolades continued to pour in for the retiring Sachin Tendulkar with the Time magazine naming the legendary Indian batsman its “Person of the Moment” while as he plays his last Test in Mumbai.

“The world’s greatest cricketer plays his last match… much to the disappointment of throngs of adoring fans,” The magazine said of the 40-year-old, who will bid adieu to cricket after playing his 200th Test currently being played against the West Indies in Mumbai.

“India’s top cricket player, Sachin Tendulkar, is regarded one of the greatest batsman of all time. The only player to score 100 international centuries, Tendulkar leaves the sport as the greatest player of his generation,” ‘Time’ said.

Tendulkar’s stellar 24-year cricketing career boasts of innumerable records and milestones which would be hard to surpass.

 He has been showered with adulation not only in India but across the world with leading US dailies paying rich tributes to the master blaster for his “supreme batsmanship” and “unwavering modesty”.

‘Time’ magazine also put out a special online feature highlighting Tendulkar’s 10 greatest moments, including his first 100 in 1990 against England, his 2001 game against Australia when he became the first player ever to score 10,000 runs in the one-day format, his unprecedented 200 runs in a single innings in a one-day international game against South Africa in 2010 and the 2011 World Cup win.

Another Time article said as the little Master plays his last Test match there is “as much a celebration of a great batsman as a poignant meditation on the vacuum he will leave behind.”

It said when Tendulkar’s last match is over, “a nation will have to be content with its memories.”
