Ganguly doesn’t want Tendulkar to end his career on a struggling note
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly reckons that batting stalwart Sachin Tendulkar should end his career on a high note.
Speaking at a book launch in Kolkata, Ganguly rated Tendulkar ahead of Brian Lara and said that the Little Master is the best player he has seen during his career and the 40-year-old should hang his boots on a high note and not on a struggling note.
"He`s got such a massive reputation as a player, the best I`ve seen during my career, and I have played against the likes of Brian Charles Lara. I`ve said so to him personally as well. Whenever he finishes, whatever time he wants to, he should finish being the player he is; not someone who has struggled," said Ganguly.
The former Indian skipper said that he wants Tendulkar to slam a hundred in South Africa.
"More than Tendulkar getting past 200 Test matches, I really want him to get a hundred in South Africa," Ganguly said.
Indian team will tour South Africa in December which could possibly be the last overseas tour for Tendulkar, who has played 198 Tests so far. India will play a three-Test series beginning with the Boxing Day Test on December 26.
