Tendulkar to Reassess on Retirement in November
TNI Bureau: Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar admitted today that he is contemplating retirement and said, he would reassess his future in November.
In an interview to be broadcast on Indian television today, the 39-year-old ‘Master- Blaster’ said he would decide on a series by series basis as he acknowledged that the clock was running down on his record breaking career. The star batsman said, “I am 39 plus and it is not abnormal for me to think of it.”
He further said, “At that moment, I will go by what my heart says. At this moment, my heart says, I am okay but you will have to look at it series by series.”
Meanwhile, some critics observe that it is the right time for the batting maestro to hang up his bat after his disappointing performance in a home Test series against New Zealand.
Tendulkar has scored a record 51 Test centuries but he has now gone 25 innings without a hundred in the five-day format since making 146 against South Africa in Cape Town in January 2011.
