Sachin knows when to retire: Kapil

Agra, Nov 7 (IBNS) Former Indian captain Kapil Dev feels that it should be left to Sachin Tendulkar to decide when he should retire from international cricket.

"A great player like Sachin knows when he should retire and it is not for me to comment about. The memory of great players lives for a long long time. For instance Sunil Gavaskar is still remembered for his great achievements," Kapil said while interacting with media persons in the Taj city on Tuesday night at the 166th Annual Sports Day of the prestigious St. Peter´s College.

Kapil also said that the resumption of Indo-Pak cricket ties is a "a good development", adding: "Please dont bring politics in sports."

Kapil said the India will definitely miss V.V.S. Laxman, Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble, who recently announced their retirement.

"It will be very difficult to fill the gaps," he said.
