New Delhi: Rohit Sharma has expressed his desire to see Sachin Tendulkar continue playing cricket for as long as possible.

Of late, there have been growing voices asking Tendulkar to hang up his boots and various reports have claimed that he will be asked to do so by the BCCI after appearing in his 200th Test.

When asked about his opinion on the issue, Sharma said that people can’t be stopped from expressing their views but he feels that Tendulkar should continue playing Tests.

He also revealed his dream to captain Team India one day.

With virtually one semifinal spot up for grabs in Group A, IPL champions Rohit’s Mumbai Indians will fancy their chances when they take on the bottom-placed Perth Scorchers in a do-or-die battle in their final round-robin match of the Champions League Twenty20 on Wednesday.
