Karachi: Pakistan's former Test captain Javed Miandad feels veteran batsman Sachin Tendulkar will fade from public memory once he retires after the second Test against West Indies as he is leaving the stage at a time when the Indian cricket team has found some exciting talent to fill the void.

"The nature of the cricket fans in this region is such that if a player tries to prolong his international career they tend to forget him soon after he retires," Miandad said.

Tendulkar has announced he will retire after the second Test which begins Thursday. Miandad said he himself had made the mistake of trying to prolong his career and it didn't end well for him.
