The 'Little Master' - who is followed by over 26 million fans on Twitter and worshipped by many more in India - took to social media to wish De Villiers well on his new chapter.

"Like your on-field game, may you have 360-degree success off the field as well. You will definitely be missed, @ABdeVilliers17. My best wishes to you," Tendulkar wrote.

De Villiers has appeared in 114 Tests, 228 One-Day Internationals (ODI) and 78 T20 Internationals for the Proteas.
