Cooking, travelling in store for Tendulkar?
London: Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar is looking at a life of some leisure after his retirement when the batting maestro will spend more time with family and friends and travel to places where cricket is not played.
"Maybe he will do some cooking and spend more time with friends and family. He likes his house, which is like his castle," The Sunday Times quoted Tendulkar`s mother-in-law Annabel Mehta as saying.
"Maybe he will travel to places that don`t play cricket," the Birmigham-born social worker said in reference to her son-in-law`s future plans after he played his final 200th Test in Mumbai this weekend.
"I remember one family holiday to Iceland, because we reckoned that was one place where they never played cricket but even there he was recognised," she added.
Tendulkar, 40, married Mehta`s daughter Anjali in 1995 and the entire family has been coping with the mass hysteria surrounding the his final innings at Wankhede Stadium.
"We are all happy it is the right decision, if a little apprehensive about how he is going to keep busy," Mehta said.
The former India Captain, whose career spanned 24 years, was yesterday chosen for India`s highest civilian award, Bharat Ratna, after his farewell Test against the West Indies.
