Sachin Tendulkar at the Wankhede

Last updated on: November 13, 2013 21:59 IST

Sachin Tendulkar will sign off from cricket after 24 glorious years in the second Test against the West Indies, starting at the Wankhede stadium, in Mumbai, on Thursday.

Going into the match, his 200th Test, the batting icon has 15,847 runs, the most by a batsman. He also has the most centuries (51). However, the last of them came almost three years back, against South Africa in Cape Town. 

Sachin TendulkarTwo years back when India faced the West Indies at the Wankhede, Tendulkar was on the verge of scoring a 100th international hundred. He came tantalizingly close, getting out in the 90s. 

A hundred in his final Test might just be the perfect farewell gift for his home fans. It is long overdue in any case. The Master Blaster has just one Test hundred to his name at the Wankhede. 

The second Test gives him a perfect opportunity to add a second, and sign off on an emphatic note.
