(AP) The most prolific batsman in international cricket history is retiring.


Sachin Tendulkar is revered in India, where cricket overshadows all sports. At 5-foot-5, the 40-year-old Tendulkar is known as the Little Master. He will retire after an upcoming test series against the West Indies.


In an era of prolific run scoring, Tendulkar produced runs all over the world and dominated the two formats of cricket. He is the closest thing the sport has seen to Sir Donald Bradman, the Australian great who played in the 1930s and '40s.


Tendulkar says he has been "living this dream every day for the last 24 years." He adds that it will be hard for him to "imagine a life without playing cricket because it's all I have ever done since I was 11 years old."
