A surpised but yet another anouncement in indian cricket post Rahul and Laxman .
But it's the case always and finally an era comes to the end . He enjoyed his journey of cricket like a king so far and In his words during anouncement :
"I have decided to retire from the One Day format of the game. I feel blessed to have fulfilled the dream of being part of a World Cup wining Indian team.The preparatory process to defend the World Cup in 2015 should begin early and in right earnest. I would like to wish the team all the very best for the future. I am eternally grateful to all my well wishers for their unconditional support and love over the years."
He has lots of records in the cricket which can dream of any other batsman .
Salute to the god of the cricket ....
