Accolades continued to pour in for the retiring Sachin Tendulkar with the 'Time' magazine naming the legendary Indian batsman its "Person of the Moment" while as he plays his last Test in Mumbai.
"The world's greatest cricketer plays his last match...much to the disappointment of throngs of adoring fans," the magazine said of the 40-year-old, who will bid adieu to cricket after playing his 200th test currently being played against the West Indies in Mumbai.
"India's top cricket player, Sachin Tendulkar, is regarded one of the greatest batsman of all time. The only player to score 100 international centuries, Tendulkar leaves the sport as the greatest player of his generation," 'Time' said.
Tendulkar's stellar 24-year cricketing career boasts of innumerable records and milestones which would be hard to surpass.
He has been showered with adulation not only in India but across the world with leading US dailies paying rich tributes to the master blaster for his "supreme batsmanship" and "unwavering modesty".
