SachinKolkata, India, May 27, 2013: Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from the Indian Premier League after Mumbai Indians won their maiden title in an IPL final clash with Chennai Super Kings.
“This is my last IPL, and this is a perfect way to end IPL,” tweeted  Sachin Tendulkar. Sentiments of Sachin fans and lovers of Indian cricket rose to feverish pitch, as many throng to convey their greetings to their icon through emotional tweets.
Pouring his feelings out, a fan tweeted: “Only Sachin can make us Smile and Cry at the same time.”
“For World Cup I had to wait for 21 years but for this I had to wait for only six years. Also this is special for me as I won’t be playing in IPL next season,” Tendulkar said at the end of the final.
“Anil (Kumble) said that 40 is just a number. There were optional practise days but entire team turned up. Things don’t come easily but we were prepared to go through the grind,” added Sachin when asked how he felt playing at 40.
“I think this is the right time to stop playing IPL. Just got to accept the reality that this would be my last season. I am happy that the sending was perfect,” told the batting  maestro to the presenter.
“I can’t just wait to touch the trophy and this is the right time to say thank you to everyone. It’s never too late to win a trophy,” Tendulkar said when Sunil Gavaskar asked him whether he would play opening match of Mumbai Indians at Wankhede next year.
