Cricket: Tendulkar walks out to guard of honour in farewell Test

MUMBAI (REUTERS) - A deafening roar greeted Sachin Tendulkar on Thursday as he walked out to a guard of honour in his farewell Test at his home ground.

Tendulkar's 200th Test match, against West Indies, at the Wankhede Stadium will also be his last, as the "Little Master" brings the curtain down on a glittering 24-year career at the age of 40.

The Indian government released two commemorative stamps, while local organisers used a specially minted coin to mark the occasion as Tendulkar led the team on to the ground.
