Nagpur, Dec. 17: The presence of Anjali Tendulkar in Nagpur had fuelled the rumours that Sachin is likely to announce his retirement on Monday, after the end of fourth Test against England, but it did not happen and in all probability, Sachin will play against Australia easry next year.
Off late there has been an increased pressure on the Little Master to perform, but hasn’t been able to live up to it and has got out in ways uncharacteristic to him. On the fourth day if the Test, Anjali was seen sitting with R. Ashwin’s wife Priti, which has set the rumour mills abuzz.
Tendulkar is without a century since 2011, but BCCI were quick to refute any question about retirement. "She tours with him sometimes during home Tests. It's nothing unusual. Sachin will certainly discuss his retirement with top BCCI officials. Everyone will know when that will happen," a BCCI source told the newspaper.
