Retirement yet to sink in: Sachin

New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar might have retired from all forms of cricket last month, but he says the feeling is yet to sink in that he would not be playing the sport anymore. The legend called it quits after his 200 th Test, at the Wankhede, against the West Indies.

“It still hasn’t hit me yet that I am not going to play cricket anymore for India. But I do manage to play with my son. And it has been fun,” The Master told a television channel.

After nearly a quarter of a century of cricket, Sachin bade an emotional adieu to international cricket after hitting a fluent 74 in his last international appearance for India. “It has been hectic. There has been things happening around. Since last month, I have spent a fair amount of time with my family, which I was looking forward to.

“I enjoy watching cricket and so does my son. I know cricket cannot be far away from me,” he said.

Sachin, who was awarded along with star actor Rajinikanth for being among the top 25 living legends, said: “It has been a fantastic experience meeting him (Rajinikanth). What a man!”
