New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar is likely to announce the judgment about his Cricket carrier in November. He told a private news-channel that now, he has grown old and he will decide to play further or leave the game according to his performance, in November during the series against England.
He said in the interview given to the channel, "Everybody is pointing towards the reason behind getting bowled thrice and this is no wonder. If, I would be 25-years-old, then nobody would talk about my retirement, but getting bowled thrice at the age of 39 is obviously questionable."
Sachin said, "Now I am 39-years-old, that's why it's not surprising to think about retirement." However, he will prefer to listen to his heart about the retirement.
He added saying, "For now, it is my gut-feeling that I am fit, but after every series, I will think about it and then take the decision according to my performance. Till I think that I am performing well, I will continue playing for my country."
Meanwhile, Sachin is giving retirement a thought but former captain and an orthodox leg-spinner of Indian team Anil Kumble can't even imagine of Indian Cricket without the 'Master Blaster'.
He completely refused to give Sachin any suggestion about his retirement and said that the judgment should be of the great batsman himself.
"I can't think of Indian cricket without Tendulkar and I want him to continue," Kumble said.
"It's a privilege to have shared Indian team dressing room for 13 years with Tendulkar. Eventually, he will have to take the call (for retirement). But this question of when to retire should be best left to him only," added Kumble after launching his sports academy 'Tenvic' at a city school.
He said that it's hard for any person to quit after being on the top for a long time.
"For any sportsperson it is a tough decision and it is for the individual to take the call. Tendulkar will also eventually have to take the call," said the former leg-spinner.
He turned down the questions of reduce in the charm of spin bowling saying, "It's not like that and spin is doing well. You have Graeme Swann of England and he is a fantastic bowler. There is Saeed Ajmal (of Pakistan) and we have R Ashwin who has matured a lot in the matches he has played so far for the country."
