New Delhi: The debate over whether Sachin Tendulkar should call time on his international career continues as reports emerge that he has no plan of retiring even after playing in his record 200th Test for India.

A leading Indian daily cited sources close to Tendulkar as saying that the 40-year-old wants to end his career in 2014 – a year that will see him complete 25 years in international cricket.

Recently, a report had claimed that the BCCI will ask Tendulkar to call it quits after he appears in his 200th Test against West Indies at home.

The board apparently reached this decision after observing that Tendulkar has shown absolutely no indications of hanging up his boots.

BCCI believes that if he makes himself available for selection then considering his stature, it is hard for the selectors to drop him from the national team.
