Mumbai: Mar 25, 2012

N Srinivasan, the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday, hinted that star cricketer Sachin Tendulkar won’t be announcing his retirement soon.

The speculations on Tendulkar’s retirement are rife once again as India completed their commanding win over Australia in the fourth Test at Delhi, registering their first-ever clean sweep in a four-match Test series in last 80 years.

The Little Master scored 192 runs in four Tests against Australia at an average of 32.00, including a half-century in the first Test at Chennai.

Srinivasan told NDTV, “He is different. Any assessment on India’s greatest cricketer will be unfair [at this stage].”

The BCCI president heaped praise on Team India for registering a historic win against Australia.

“The team was unlucky at times and also undergoing a transition. Against Australia, the team has regrouped and we should be proud of them. No team wants to lose and our players have tried their best. Sometimes, the circumstances are not in your favour,” Srinivasan said.

“It’s nice to see India win so comprehensively. We always had confidence in the team. We had faith in the captain and his boys and now our stand has been justified.”

“The real test of character will come when India play South Africa and New Zealand later this year,” Srinivasan said.

Meanwhile, Srinivasan said there is no threat to Sri Lankan cricketers in the upcoming season of Indian Premier League (IPL).

“India is a safe country and there is no law and order problem in Tamil Nadu. The IPL is still a few days away and if any situation arises, we will deal with it,” Srinivasan concluded.
