Sachin Tendulkar has finally come out and stated the obvious. In an interview to Times Now, he said, "I am 39 and I don't think I have plenty of cricket left in me."
Tendulkar went on to suggest that he would re-assess his future when he takes the field against England next month.
The maestro, who has played 190 Tests, rubbished suggestions that he wanted to continue till the 200-mark. "I go series by series, rather than by numbers," he said.
He also shrugged off the recent criticism from Sunil Gavaskar who had expressed concern at Sachin being repeatedly bowled. "Sunil Gavaskar has also said positive things about me. When there have been a lot of positive feedback as well, why keep harping only on the negative comments?" he asked.
A glorious 23-year-old career may be coming to an end sooner than you think.
