New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar will not be taking field when India play Sri Lanka later this month as he has opted out of the series. And the reason for this is that he wanted to spend some quality time with his children.
"I requested BCCI that I wanted to spend time with my family. This is the time for school holidays. If I had decided to go to Sri Lanka, I would have started my preparation by now. But I wanted to spend some quality time with my children since after this I would be playing continuously for next 10 months," he said.
"Holidays are different from spending time during school days or on weekends."
