Mumbai: Jun 2, 2013

Sachin Tendulkar sent shirts to West Indies batting star Brian Lara. Tendulkar sent it through his Mumbai Indians‘ teammate Kieron Pollard.

Lara congratulated Tendulkar and Mumbai Indians for their maiden title win in the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Lara wrote on his official page on Facebook: “Thanks Sachin Tendulkar! got the shirts from Pollard…will try them on soon. Well done on winning IPL6. Great way to bow out!!” (sic)

Tendulkar, who called it quits from the IPL after Mumbai Indians lifted the title at Kolkata, said it was the perfect time to retire from the Twenty20 event as he has to “face the reality” after turning 40.
“I think this is the right time to stop playing IPL. I am 40. I have to face the reality. I had decided that this would be my last season. And now the ending is perfect,” Tendulkar had said after Mumbai beat the Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs at the Eden Gardens to lift their maiden IPL trophy on May 26.
