"The last one month have been difficult for us. Whenever we thought of this day we became emotional. It will be difficult for us to imagine Tendulkar without cricket. Cricket can be without Tendulkar but hard for us to believe that Tendulkar will be without cricket," Anjali said in a rare TV interview.

Anajli said Tendulkar can never switch himself off from the game.
"I have never seen him switching him off from the game. Even when we are holidaying in England he is always in the switch on mode. He is very conscious about the game and will never eat too much. We will always hit gym and practice with Arjun (son) to stay fit whenever he gets a chance," said Anjali in an interview to host broadcaster Star Sports.
