Former India opener Devang Gandhi on Monday said that Test cricket will survive despite its falling popularity and the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar.

Tendulkar is set to retire from cricket at the end of the second Test against the West Indies at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. He will also become the first player in history to play 200 Tests.

He is set to retire as the highest run-getter and century-maker in Test cricket, apart from making the most appearances. His exploits on the cricket field have often drawn comparisons with those of the legendary Sir Donald Bradman.
