Sachin Tendulkar has called time on an ODI career that had the most matches, most hundreds and the most runs. In the past 23 years, his ODI performances have given countless memories to cherish for cricket fans.
Some of the highlights include: the game-tying final wicket of Anderson Cummins against West Indies in Perth in 1991, the Auckland assault in 1994 in his first match as an opener, the nerveless match-winning final over of the Hero Cup semi-final in 1993, the half-century against Sri Lanka in 1996 World Cup semi-final when the pitch looked like a featherbed when he batted but a minefield after he was dismissed, the twin centuries against Australia to win a tri-series in Sharjah in 1998, the emotional century against Kenya in the 1999 World Cup the day after returning from his father's funeral, the dismantling of Pakistan in Centurion in the 2003 World Cup, becoming the first man to make an ODI double century at Gwalior in 2010, and being chaired around the ground by his team-mates after fulfilling his lifelong ambition of winning a World Cup, in 2011.
Tell us you favourite memory - a shot, a catch, a spell, an innings, a crowd chant, an encounter - of Sachin Tendulkar in one-day cricket.
