Mumbai: Nov 25, 2012

At a time when there is a lot of debate about Sachin Tendulkar’s retirement, former Australian captain Steve Waugh has said that the master blaster should go when he is at the peak of his game.

Waugh, who was faced with a similar situation back in his playing days, retired in 2004 after a lot of critics calling for his head after he was dropped from the 2003 World Cup.

In an interview with Times Now, Waugh described Sachin as a once-in-a-lifetime player and said that no one could ever take away his record spanning over 23 years of International cricket.

Waugh feels that Tendulkar will be the right man to make the decision as to when will be the best time for him to quit and added that he is definitely nearing the end of his career.

Sachin has been out-of-sorts in the last few matches and will hope to pick things up when he plays against England in the second innings of the seond Test at Mumbai and carry the momentum into the third Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Waugh feels the young shoulders of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli are strong enough to carry the Indian team forward.
