Sachin Tendulkar looking 'lost' is a sign that he is not enjoying cricket, says Sunil Gavaskar

NDTV also asked Gavaskar if there were 'signs' that Sachin was not may be enjoying his cricket. He replied,"In this Test in the second innings, Sachin did look a little bit lost. I have been watching him since 1989 and he has been in the thick of things always. Even if he is fielding in the deep, he is always involved. He might have had an injury here but did look a little lost and that probably is a sign (of the end).

New Delhi: Sunil Gavaskar has been a staunch supporter of Sachin Tendulkar ever since 1989 when the latter made his debut. Gavaskar today, after the humiliating series loss at home to England, finally gave hints that Sachin should make a decision on his career as he felt the senior batsman was no longer enjoying his time on the field.

When NDTV asked Gavaskar about Tendulkar's future, he said,"The longest period on a cricket field is as a fielder and if Sachin is not enjoying that he will know that the time is right to go. Quite clearly, this series has not been a good one for him. I's sure he will reassess the situation as he had promised before the season. He does not play T20Is and I'm not too sure whether he will play ODIs against Pakistan. So he does have time before Australia series and you will have a decision sooner than later."

When asked whether the selectors should talk to him, Gavaskar said,"They should talk to Sachin if they feel that he does not fit into the team. That is what they are paid for."
