American media praises Sachin

New York (PTI): Cricket may not be too big a sport in this part of the world but leading US publications have nonetheless paid tribute to retiring Indian superstar Sachin Tendulkar, applauding the veteran batsman for his “supreme” talent and a career lived with soft-spoken integrity and humility.

“This week, for more than a billion people, the world as they know it effectively comes to an end. The second Test match between India and the West Indies …will be the last international appearance of one Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar,” a Wall Street Journal article said. An article in the ‘New York Times’ likened Tendulkar’s retirement from cricket to the death of Mahatma Gandhi.

“As the moment of his departure looms, the country is in the fevered throes of one last, mammoth celebration, but also on the un-self-conscious brink of mourning,” the NYT op-ed piece said.
