Mumbai, Dec,23: Sachin Tendulkar an all-time great Cricketer from India,  announced his retirement from one-day cricket on Sunday, his decision brings to an end a glorious 23-year-old career in the one day cricket format during which he had climbed numerous batting records.

"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," the 39-year-old said in a statement released by the BCCI today.

"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 added.

Sachin Tendulkar known as the most complete batsman in cricket and one who was considered at par with Sir Donald Bradman, retires from the 50 over format at the top of the run-getters' list.

Sachin Tendulkar goes out after amassing 18,426 runs in 463 ODI at an average of 44.83. The sparking right-handed batsman has 49 centuries in the ODI, including a double hundred -- the first in this form of the game.

Tendulkar made his ODI debut against Pakistan way back in 1989 and interestingly he is leaving the scene just ahead of another series against same opposition.

Master blaster who made himself unavailable for Twenty20 format after playing just one game in 2006, will now play Test Cricket only.

The best moment of his ODI career came in the year 2011 when he finally became part of a World Cup winning Indian team after five consecutive appearances.

Tendulkar's last ODI century came in the Asia Cup in Bangladesh in March 2012 a feat that completed an unprecedented 100 international tons.

He was stuck on 99 century for quite a while after scoring two centuries during ICC World Cup campaign. Tendulkar also has mammoth tally of 96 ODI 50s to his credit.

Despite the recent poor show, Tendulkar's overall runs is unlikely to be matched anytime soon given that the distant second-best in the list, former Australian captain Ricky Ponting, has already left the cricket with 13,704 runs under his account.

Sanath Jayasuriya from Sri Lanka occupies the third place in the overall chart with 13,430 runs in his account.

Apart from his batting, Sachin Tendulkar was an effective part time bowler and finishes his ODI career with 154 wickets, including two five-wicket hauls against Australia.

His Test records are more inspiring as he has 15,645 runs at an average of 54.32 in 194 Tests that he has played so far. The run count includes 51 hundreds and 66 half-centuries.
