Kolkata: Aug 15, 2013

With Sachin Tendulkar set to play his 200th Test Match during the upcoming Indian tour of South Africa, the batting maestro may bid goodbye to the game after the landmark match, former Test pacer Karsan Ghavri on Thursday said.

“He already has all the records and we all surely would love to see him getting to another landmark — his 200th Test Match. I think he has been waiting for the right time and as soon as he plays the 200th game he will retire,” Ghavri said.

In the city to participate in an Independence Day celebration, Ghavri described Tendulkar as the country’s greatest sporting ambassador. Tendulkar is just two short of achieving the landmark of having played in 200 Tests.

“It’s not that after retiring he will be out of the game. He is such a great name, he will always be associated with cricket. All his records are almost impossible to be broken and the landmark of 200 Test matches is just unbelievable,” added Ghavri.

India’s tour to South Africa, beginning November this year, is slated to comprise two T20 Internationals, seven One-Day Internationals and three Tests.
