Former Indian cricketer and legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar on Monday recalled his last day in international cricket and spoke about the 'special gift' that he was presented by the West Indian Cricket Board and his friend Brian Lara.

 

Tendulkar, whose 24-year career made him a cricket icon, retired on November 16, 2013. His retirement came after his 200th Test match against the West Indies at his home ground in Mumbai.
