India’s Tendulkar Sachin retires from ODIs after scoring 49 centuries in ODIs

India batsman Sachin Tendulkar has announced his retirement from one-day international cricket.
The Board of Control for Cricket confirmed the 39-year-old, regarded as the world?s greatest living batsman, had decided to bring an end to his 50-over career after 463 one-day international caps.
Tendulkar spoke to BCCI president Narainswamy Srinivasan before announcing the decision. The highest run scorer in Test history said on the governing body?s official website: ?I have decided to retire from the one-day format of the game.?
Tendulkar added: ?I feel blessed to have fulfilled the dream of being part of a World Cup wining Indian team. The preparatory process to defend the World Cup in 2015 should begin early and in right earnest. I would like to wish the team all the very best for the future.
?I am eternally grateful to all my well wishers for their unconditional support and love over the years.?
The batsman, who made his ODI debut back in 1989, has made his decision before next month?s five-match one-day series at home to England.
