Adelaide, Jan 24 (UNI) Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar is confident that his career is far from over and hinted that the master could well return for another tour Down Under.
Tendulkar said he will continue to play cricket till he's enjoying the game and at the moment has not thought about quitting the game.
''I don't want to say too much about this being the end because I don't know whether it's going to be my last Test in Australia,'' he said adding ''We will see.'' ''I don't want to think about whether I have two, three or even four years left.'' ''To be honest, I have not thought about it. Basically, I just want to go out and enjoy the game.'' In his 407 ODIs, Tendulkar has scored 15,962 runs. The little master will have an added motivation to cross 16,000 runs in the one-day series against Australia and Sri Lanka that follows the ongoing Test series.
While other senior players including Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly have been left out from the one-day squad, Tendulkar has retained his place.
But Tendulkar, 34, looks unfased by the ommission of seniors and is more focussed on his own cricket.
He seemed satisfied with the way he is playing at the moment and said he has always relished playing in Australia.
However, he was hopeful that India will come out good in the last Test at Adelaide which is expected to be his last Test on the Australian soil.
''Australia is a fantastic place to play cricket,'' Tendulkar said.
''I have always enjoyed playing here as people understand the sport. It is competitive and a great challenge. I love it.'' But he added that no team can be complacent against Australia as they will come hard after being beaten at Perth.
''We know that Ricky Ponting's team will come hard at us.
''They have always done that in the past. We don't want to take anything for granted,'' he said.
