India batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar says he may stop playing One-day Internationals (ODIs) before retiring from Tests as the shorter version puts a lot of pressure on the body.
“If I do quit, it will be from ODIs first,” Tendulkar said in an interview here. Refuting rumours of his retirement, he said: “I don’t know where the rumours about me retiring after Lord’s ODI against England started. I did not say anything, I spoke to my wife (Anjali) and she told me this news had started back home, I never said anything.”
“I just had to focus on the game at hand. People were saying this is my last game in England, that may be possible, but certainly not my last ODI,” he said. Tendulkar said he had a great time watching India’s win against Pakistan in the World T20 final.
“I enjoyed the bowl-out versus Pakistan. The three stumps suddenly looked narrower. Harbhajan (Singh), (Robin) Uthappa and (Virender) Sehwag did a fantastic job and I especially enjoyed Uthappa’s reaction,” he explained.
About umpiring decisions against him on England tour, he said: “Its part and parcel of the game. If relationship between players and umpires is good, the game moves forward. The umpire actually came and apologised to me, that was very nice of him. How many guys walk up and say they are sorry?” he asked.
