If the Board of Control for Cricket in India president N. Srinivasan is to be believed, Sachin Tendulkar's Test future seems to be alive and kicking. Refusing to comment on Tendulkar's under-par form in back-to-back home series against England and Australia, the BCCI chief said: "He is different. Any assessment on India's greatest cricketer will be unfair (at this stage)."
For the statistically minded, Tendulkar's aggregate in the 8 matches in the 2012-13 season reads as follows: 304 runs in 13 innings (1 not out) at an average of 25.33. Tendulkar scored two fifties and hasn't scored a century.
In an exclusive interview with NDTV on Monday, Srinivasan was all praise for Team India for the four-nil win against Australia and defended Mahendra Singh Dhoni's boys for the 2-1 defeat against England at home.
