New Delhi: BCCI Vice President Rajeev Shukla on Thursday paid glowing tribute to Sachin Tendulkar, saying the batting icon's retirement from Test cricket will leave a great void in the Indian cricket team.
"Sachin's retirement will leave a great void in the Indian cricket team, something that won't be easy to fill in. He has been the greatest ambassador for sport in our country" Shukla told PTI.
"Personally, it's a sad moment for me as he has decided to call time on his career but a time comes in our lives when we have to make that difficult choice. He did speak to me and discussed on this issue", he said.
