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

As the run-machine calls it a day after the ongoing second Test against the West Indies, former cricketers and commentators are paying tribute to the batting icon.

It all started with this tweet: “I look forward to playing my 200th Test Match on home soil, as I call it a day.”

Indian cricket commentator and journalist Harsha Bhogle tweeted: "sachin, i'll say this again: you were a great habit. i'll live every moment of these last two games".

Leading sportspersons, cricket greats, Bollywood actors and corporate bosses are all writing farewell tributes to batting legend.

You too can.
