Sachin Crying After Final Internation Test Match
Sachin Can't control his emotions in his last test match and even had tears in his eyes which made Billions of fans to cry. He is well greeted by everyone in his farewell and he gave final Speech as below.

Sachin's Own Words in FareWell


Sachin Speaks in Farewell
All my friends, settle down. Let me talk, I'll get more and more emotional.' The crowd goes berserk out there. 'My life, between 22 yards for 24 years, it's hard to believe that the wonderful journey is coming to an end. But I would like to take this opportunity to thank people who have played an important role in my life.

Also for the first time in my life I am carrying this list in my hand to remember all the names. In case I forget someone, I hope you understand. It's getting a little difficult to talk but I'll manage. The most important person in my life, and I've missed a lot since 1999 he passed away, my father. Without his guidance, I don't think I would have been standing here in front of you. He gave me freedom at the age of 11, and he told me, chase your dreams and make sure you don't find shortcuts. The path might be difficult but don't give up, and I've simply followed his instructions. Above all, he told me to be a nice human being which I've continued to do so, I've tried my best. Every time I've done something special, whenever I've shown my bat, it was for my father. So I miss him today.

My mother, I don't how she dealt with such a naughty child like me. I was not easy to manage. She must be extremely patient. For a mother, the most important thing is that her child remains safe and healthy, and fit and that's what she was most bothered about and worried about. She took care of me. For 1st 24 years that I've played for India, but even before that, she started praying for me the day I started playing cricket. She just prayed and prayed and prayed and I think her prayers and blessing have given me the strength to go out and perform. So a big thank you to my mother for all the sacrifices.

In my school days, for fours years I stayed with my uncle and aunt because my school was quite far from my home and they treated me like their son. My aunt after having had a hard day's play, I would be half asleep and she would be feeding me food so that I could go and play again tomorrow. I can't forget these moments, I'm like their son and I am glad that it has continued to be the same way.

My eldest brother Nitin and his family have always encouraged me. My eldest brother doesn't like to talk much. But the one thing he always told is that whatever you do, I know you would give 100% and I have full confidence and faith in you. It is that encouragement that meant a lot to me.

My sister Savita and her family was no different. The first cricket bat of my life was presented to me by my sister and it was a Kashmir Willow bat. But that is when the journey began. She is one of those many who continues to fast when I bat. So thank you very much. Ajit my brother, now what do I talk about him? I don't know really. We've lived this dream together. He was the one who sacrificed his career for my cricket. He spotted the spark in me. It all started from the age of 11, when he took me to Achrekar sir, my coach and from there on my life changed.

You will find this hard to believe that even last night he called me and we were discussing my dismissal. Knowing that there was a remote chance of batting again, but just that the habit which we've developed and the rapport we've developed since my birth, it has continued and it will continue. Maybe even when I am not playing cricket we will still be discussing technique. Various things we agreed upon, my technique and so many technical things which I didn't agree with him, we've had arguments and disagreements. But in the end when I look back at those things, if that hadn't happened in my life I would have been a lesser cricketer.

The most beautiful thing happened to me in 1991 when I met my wife Anjali, Those were special years and it has continued and it will always continue that way. I know Anjali being a doctor, there was a wonderful career in front her. When we decided to have a family, Anjali took the initiative to step back and say that you continue with your cricket and I'll take the responsibility of the family. Without that I don't think I would have been able to play cricket freely and without any stress. Thanks for bearing with all my fuss all my frustrations and all sorts of rubbish that I've spoken, I normally do. Thanks for bearing with me and always staying by my side through the ups and downs. You are the best partnership I've had in my life.


Then the two precious diamonds of my life, Sara and Arjun. They've already grown up. My daughter is 16 and my son is 14, time has flown by. I wanted to spend so much time with them on special occasions like their birthdays, annual days, sports days, going on holidays, whatever. I've missed out on all those things. Thanks for your understanding. Both of you have been so, so special to me. You cannot imagine. I promise you, for 14 years and 16 years, I've not spent enough time with both of you. But the next 16 years or even beyond that, everything is for you. My in-laws have been so, so supportive, loving, caring. I've discussed on various things in life generally with them and taken their advise. You know, it's so important to have a strong family who's always with you guiding you. Before you start clapping, the most important thing they did was allowing me to marry Anjali so thank you very much. In the last 24 years that I've played for India I've made new friends and before that I've had friends of my childhood. They all have had terrific contributions. Right from you know, as and when I've called them to come and bowl to me in the nets, they've left all their work aside and come and help me. Be it joining me on holidays or having discussions on cricket, when I was a little stressed and wanting to find a solution so that I could perform better. All those moments, my friends were with me. Even whenever I was injured I would walk up early in the morning because I could not sleep. I thought my career was over because of injuries. That's when my friends have woken up at 3 AM to drive with me and just make me believe that your career is not over. Life would be incomplete without all those friends. Thanks for being with me. My cricket career started when I was 11. The turning point of my career was when my brother took me to Achrekar sir, my coach. I was extremely delighted to see him up in the stands. Normally he sits in front of the television and he watches all the games that I played. When I was 11, 12, those were the days where I used to hop back on his scooter and play couple of practice matches a day. First half of the day I would be batting at Shivaji Park, the second half, some other match at Azad Maidan. Sir would be taking me all over Mumbai to make sure that I got match practice. On a lighter note, in the last 29 years sir has never ever said well played to me because he thought I would get complacent and I would stop working hard. Maybe he can push his luck and wish me now well done on my career because there are no more matches sir in my life. I would be just witnessing cricket and cricket will always stay in my heart. But you have had an immense contribution in my life. Thank you very much.


End of an Era:

Its all over now Sachin is no more in cricket field, we can't see those lovely cover drive, cut shot, famous straight drive, the upper cut, eye catching on drives and so on. Lets wish him to have a Great and Lovely off field life hopefully now he can spend his time with his lovable family and friends.
