Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from international one-day cricket after scoring a record-breaking 49 centuries.

The 39-year-old is the world's top run-getter in the 50-over format, with 18,426 runs from 463 matches at an average of 44.83.

Tendulkar, who is also the highest scorer in Tests, said that he was quitting to allow the Indian selectors to build a team for the 2015 World Cup which is being held in Australia and New Zealand.
