I Want to see Sachin Tendulkar play forever: Coulter-Nile

Just like any other young cricketer, Australian speedster Nathan Coulter-Nile is in awe of Sachin Tendulkar and does not want the senior India batsman to retire from the game.

Plying his trade for the Mumbai Indians, for Coulter-Nile, Tendulkar is one player who is more than willing to give an insight about the game
to the younger lot.
"Sachin is someone who believes in backing one's own ability. He has got all the talent in the world and whenever I speak to him he always gives insights as to where I should bowl and what the batsmen would be trying to look at while bowling to them," said Coulter-Nile.

"He gives an insight into what the batsmen would be thinking about when I am running up to bowl at them, which is something I really appreciate. I would want to see him play forever, but unfortunately all good things have to come to an end and hopefully we can get the Champions League trophy for him and give him a perfect send-off," he told the

Coulter-Nile, who picked up three wickets in his side's six-wicket win over Perth Scorchers in the Champions League match here last night, which helped them cruise into the semi-finals of the tournament, said he was scared of bowling to Tendulkar in the nets.

"I am scared to bowl to Sachin in the nets because he absolutely whacks them. It is not something that I would have imagined doing in my life. It has beenfantastic and I never really felt I would be here," he said.
