Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Thursday congratulated and wished Sachin Tendulkar on the occasion of his 200th Test match. It will also be his final appearance for India when he plays in the second Test against West Indies in Mumbai.
"Sachin has been one of the best role models the game of cricket could have ever wished for," said CSA Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat.
"His ability speaks for itself and together with his exceptional attitude combined with his humility makes him an extraordinary player. This more than matches his amazing career records that he has amassed over more than two decades."
