Sachin Tendulkar says not bothered by retirement opinion of others

On the question of the likes of former captains Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid and V V S Laxman giving opinions about him, though not necessarily negative, Tendulkar asked, "You think they were talking wrong things about me?"

"It does not affect me," Tendulkar said when asked whether the constant talk of when he would retire had irritated him or affected his performance.
