India legend Sachin Tendulkar will call time on his career after his 200th Test Match against West Indies in November

Sachin Tendulkar has announced he will retire from cricket after playing his 200th Test, which is scheduled to take place against West Indies in November.

Tendulkar has played 198 Tests to date, scoring 15,837 runs at an average of 53.86.

The batsman said: "All my life, I have had a dream of playing cricket for India. I have been living this dream every day for the last 24 years.

"It's hard for me to imagine a life without playing cricket because it's all I have ever done since I was 11 years old. It's been a huge honour to have represented my country and played all over the world.

"I look forward to playing my 200th Test Match on home soil, as I call it a day."
