Sachin Tendulkar discussed 'future' with Sandeep Patil, to play against Pak: Channel

Sachin Tendulkar

Ganguly said if Tendulkar has decided to play the Test series against Australia, taking part in the ODIs will help him to get back to form.

"If he has decided to play the Test series against Australia then I think the eight ODIs will help get back the confidence which is required to get runs. If you score runs you go with much better frame of mind into Test matches. If he does well in the one dayers it will help him do well in test matches", he pointed out.

"I think Mahendra Singh Dhoni from his inside knew that he (sachin) would play againstt Australia being in the dressing room, being captain of the side you get to know even if its not spoken or no words are exchanged that this man is going to go on and I think it's not bad.

"It's about runs, performance and not names. He just hopes tendulkar performs as he has done that in 23 years and hope for the best. Performing Sachin Tendulkar is an assest to every team", he added.

The claims were made by 'Headlines TV' in its report.
