London: Former England captain Geoffrey Boycott is glad that Sachin Tendulkar has decided to call it quits after his 200th Test as he feels the Indian veteran's "legacy to cricket is more important than playing on for another year or two".

"I am glad Sachin Tendulkar has announced he will retire after his 200th Test match because for the best part of 24 years he has been loved, adored and admired by millions," Boycott wrote in his column for 'The Daily Telegraph'.

Tendulkar, who has been in international cricket for 24 years, will retire after playing his 200th Test, which will happen during the home series against the West Indies next month.
