New Delhi: Dec 16, 2013

 

Sachin Tendulkar might have retired from all forms of cricket last month but the Indian batting legend says the feeling is yet to sink in that he would not playing the sport anymore.

 

“It still has not hit me yet that I am not going to play cricket anymore for India. But I manage to play with my son. It has been fun,” Tendulkar told NDTV.

 

After nearly a quarter of a century of cricket, Tendulkar bade an emotional adieu to international cricket after playing his 200th Test against West Indies in Mumbai last month.

 

“It has been hectic. There has been things happening around. Since last month, I have spent a fair amount of time with my family, which I was looking forward to it,” he said.

 

“I enjoy watching cricket and so is my son and I know cricket cannot be far away from me,” he said.

 

Tendulkar, who was awarded along with star actor Rajinikanth by NDTV for being among the top 25 living legends, said: “It has been a fantastic experience meeting him [Rajinikanth]. What a man. There are many players who come to the Indian team from southern India. So there are unbelievable fans of Rajini sir and so am I.

 

“It was a pity that I was not able to meet him earlier because I didn’t have access to him. It was kind of him to meet me this morning. I am absolutely floored by his humility,” the 40-year-old batting icon said.

 

“I was really happy to know that he watches cricket, we discussed about various matches like India-Pakistan matches,” he added.
