Sachin Tendulkar Bows Out Of Domestic Cricket!

Sachin Tendulkar today played his last innings in Indian domestic cricket in Lahli, Haryana where the Ranji Trophy Group A match between Haryana and Mumbai had been on for the last four days. The best cricketer of the world led his team Mumbai to victory by 4 wickets himself remaining unbeaten with a gritty and trademark-Tendulkar innings of 79 superlative runs. Thanks to the living legend of Indian cricket this first class domestic match has been getting all the media attention and craze of the cricket-loving nation which is so unusual otherwise. To make the occasion most memorable the pitch in Lahli had a lot of green and a lot of seam in it making it very difficult for the batsmen to get runs. And, the match has been very exciting all through with both teams having chances to win.

Set 240 runs to win in the fourth innings to the match Mumbai had a torrid time chasing the target yesterday with wickets falling at regular intervals. But the master-blaster stood through as if determined not to disappoint his countless fans in his last domestic outing. However, with Mumbai at 201 for 6 at the end of day’s play yesterday it was still anybody’s game. Sachin Tendulkar was the last recognized batsman left and it was fully up to him to craft an exciting victory. He did exactly that this morning and helped his team attain the target with no further fall of wicket. Tendulkar told reporters after the match that it was a very tricky pitch and he was happy to lead his team to victory. Most the media channels have gone live capturing the moment. The Scorecard:

Now the countdown has begun for the 200th Test of Sachin Tendulkar after which he will bow of cricket forever. West Indies, specially invited to a 2-Test tour of India for the momentous event, has already arrived and been practicing. The 199th Test match will be played in Kolkata from 6th to 10th November and his farewell 200th Test will be played in his home ground Mumbai from 14th to 18th November. There will be three ODIs after the Test Series and Tendulkar had already bowed out of one day internationals. Millions of cricket fans, cricket commentators and experts, all ex-cricketers and legends and the media are going to be focused, with various emotions from sadness to gloom, on the spectacle when Sachin Tendulkar would walk out of the cricket field into the dressing room for the very last time.
