New Delhi: Sachin Tendulkar's family members had never imagined that he would represent India at the age of 16 and go on to break so many records, his elder brother Ajit said on Monday. He added that Sachin's decision to quit Test cricket came at a right time as he is bowing out on a high.

"We never thought of Sachin getting the India cap at such a young age of 16. We were thinking of going step by step, from school level to zonal level and then the all India level, from Under-15, Under-19 and to senior level and so on," Ajit said.

"We were proud and happy when he was selected for the first time for India in the Pakistan tour of 1989 and the family was absolutely delighted at that time," he added.
