-Farewell Sachin... write a postcard to the batting icon

On Wednesday, the British Prime Minister David Cameron described the Master Blaster as "the greatest of all times" and wished him good luck for his ongoing 200th Test match against the West Indies in Mumbai.

"He is the greatest of all times. He's an extraordinary cricketer...a fantastic player. I wish him well today," he said while interacting with Indian businessmen.

Cameron said it's not just about cricket but also the consistency one needs to score a century.

Noting that Tendulkar has inspired a lot of youth, he said, "If you look who has done more to inspire the young cricketers, he has done well in that."
