Johannesburg - When legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar announced on Thursday that he would retire from Test cricket later this year, former cricketer Ali Bacher paid tribute to the Indian batsman whom he had been privileged to know and watch play on numerous occasions.

The 40-year-old master batsman retired from one-day cricket in December 2012 and would end his career with two Test matches against the West Indies in November. The second game, scheduled to be played in Mumbai, would be his 200th and final Test.
