Ganguly hopes Sachin Tendulkar's bat lights up Test skies in South Africa

Former Indian Test captain feels Tendulkar, who is approaching his 200th Test, should at least score a century in South Africa and keeping his lofty standards in mind, bow out on a high.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has said that he sincerely hopes Sachin Tendulkar will fire against hosts South Africa in the three-Test series starting from December 26, later this year.

Tendulkar is expected to complete 200 Test matches in the series - he has played 198 so far - and Ganguly said that the legendary batsman should highlight his gradual exit with knocks which are at par with his own mammoth standards.

"He's got such a massive reputation as a player, the best I've seen during my career, and I have played against the likes of Brian Charles Lara. I've said so to him personally as well. Whenever he finishes, whatever time he wants to, he should finish being the player he is; not someone who has struggled," said Ganguly at a book launch in Kolkata on Sunday.
