2013 saw cricket and India bid farewell to arguably the greatest player of the modern era. Sachin Tendulkar helped Mumbai Indians win both the IPL and the CLT20. Though he didn't stand out with the bat, it's no secret that his leadership in the dressing room was a big factor in the team's success. However, to remember Sachin Tendulkar's contribution to Indian cricket only by his achievements this past year is to do him a disservice. He retired from Test cricket having averaged just 25 in his last 13 innings and without adding to his 100 international centuries, but the emotional speech he gave at the end of his final Test at Wankhede will live long in the memories of Indian fans.
Fast Fact: ?Such was the demand for tickets for Sachin's last Test match, the website selling them, KyaZoonga.com, crashed with 19 million hits in the first hour.
