The tickets for the first Test against the West Indies at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata are out! They bear a mug-shot of Sachin Tendulkar, sketched by artist Jogen Chowdhury.

The Test, to be played from November 6 to 10, will be the batting icon's 199th.

He will retire from cricket after the second and last Test of the series, at the Wankhede stadium, in Mumbai, from November 14 to 18.

In a career spanning 24 years, the run-machine has aggregated 15,837 runs, at an average of 53.86, from 198 appearances.

In 463 ODI matches, he scored a whopping 18,426 runs, at an average of 44.83.

He is the only batsman to score 100 international centuries -- 51 in Tests and 49 in ODIs.
