Sachin Tendulkar not planning to retire after 200th Test: Reports

Sachin Tendulkar’s impending 200th Test is in the news as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has planned a series against the West Indies in November so that the landmark game comes before the home fans. Although there is speculation that the maestro will call it a day after the game, sources close to Tendulkar have indicated that he has no plans to retire.

Hindustan Times quoted Tendulkar’s close friend and former teammate, “”I’m pretty certain he is not looking forward to the next home season. So, yes, the Tests against West Indies will be his last at home. And though BCCI is forced to stage these Tests because so much money is at stake, they have spoken to Sachin and MCA to organise a final home Test.”

India will travel to New Zealand after the tour to South Africa and are scheduled to visit England in July 2014. “He hasn’t put a full stop on anything yet. He will take a call on touring England next year for the five Tests  after the tours of South Africa, and maybe New Zealand. Don’t be surprised if he goes to England next July too,” Tendulkar’s friend said.

Other sources close to Tendulkar also suggested that he was looking beyond the 200th Tests and is in fact eager for the South African challenge. Tendulkar’s childhood friend was quoted by Hindustan Times, “He is actually looking forward to that series – that’s why these reports that he wants to quit at home are puzzling. He has been preparing for that series.”
