CRICKET: Sachin Tendulkar announces retirement from IPL

Cricket star Sachin Tendulkar has announced his retirement from the Indian Premier League (IPL) tournament.

The announcement came moments after his team Mumbai Indians lifted their first IPL title last night, beating the Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs.

West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard helped Mumbai to the victory with 60 from 32 balls.

The IPL has been dogged by controversy with allegations of spot fixing against several cricketers and team owners.

In the last fortnight, three bowlers from Rajasthan Royals team and the owner of the Chennai Super Kings team were arrested.

Tendulkar, who turned 40 last month, has a huge fan base in India.

He was the first cricketer to score 100 international centuries.
