Tendulkar not retiring just yet
Sachin Tendulkar insists he has no plans to retire from one-day cricket as he is still enjoying the format.
Tendulkar was not included in India's limited-overs squad for their upcoming tour to Sri Lanka, prompting speculation that he was set to retire from the 50-over game.
However, the Little Master insists that he is only taking a temporary break so that he can spend more time with his family.
"It's not about what XYZ thinks, it's about what I feel and I feel as long as I am enjoying and I feel like being part of it, I'll continue (playing one-dayers)," Tendulkar told CNN-IBN.
"I think it (speculation over retirement) has been going on since 2006. It's been six years now. I am enjoying cricket and as long as I am passionate about cricket it makes sense being part of team sport."
Tendulkar has already called time on his international T20 career because he thought others could do a better job and that younger players needed exposure. The 39-year-old admits that when he feels the same way about ODIs he will retire.
"I felt I should not be part of T20 squad because the team did well. When I get that feeling in one-day cricket maybe I would take that decision," he said.
"When I feel like taking that decision (to quit one-day cricket) I will take that. I don't want the rest of the guys to take that decision for me."
