Master Blaster wants to score 15000 runs

Sachin Tendulkar - The man the legend has said that he is not satisfied with his current records & wants to score 15000 test runs. Also he want India to win the world cup in 2011.

"I am not pleased yet with what I have done," said the champion batsman. Tendulkar has scored a record 12773 test runs at an impressive average of 54.58 from 159 matches. "Sunil Gavaskar has told me that I have to get to 15,000 runs. He said he would be angry with me and would come and catch me if I didn't. I admire him so much and to score that many would be a terrific achievement, but that is not the only aim." His other 'big aim' is to 'win the World Cup in 2011'.

The Master batsman also spoke how he has played constantly in pain. "I always play in pain, all the time. I played with a broken finger for the last three months, but you know when pain is manageable or not, and most of the time I can do it," said Tendulkar. "I can still do what I did when I was 25 but the body is changing, so your thought process has to change too. I have had to change how I think, which is about taking less risk."

Just like batting legend Don Bradman, Tendulkar compared Virender Sehwag's batting style with him. He said "I would say Virender Sehwag comes closest to my style."

He admitted that life after cricket wouldn't be easy. "It's a scary thought. It has been there for my whole adult life, it will be difficult, I have been around for a long time, I can imagine when I finish I will long to face just 10 more balls but you have to move." said Tendulkar.
