No ultimatum to Sachin: BCCI

Mumbai, Sept 18 : The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has rubbished media reports on batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has been given an ultimatum regarding his Test career.

"I have not spoken or discussed anything related to his 200th Test or his retirement. The news reports on Tendulkar are baseless," BCCI selection committee chief Sandeep Patil told CNN-IBN.

Pertinently, The Indian Express on Wednesday reported that Tendulkar's 200th Test during the home series against West Indies in November will most probably be his last.

"Patil told Tendulkar that after his 200th Test, it will only be his form and not his past record that will matter when selectors pick the team for future Tests, it is learnt," said the newspaper.

"Those in the know say that days after the West Indies series was finalised, Patil spoke to BCCI chief N Srinivasan seeking clarity on Tendulkar," it said in its report.

"Patil spoke to Tendulkar and made him understand the entire scenario. He even told him about the selectors' plan for the next one year and how they were looking to blood more youngsters," one selector told The Indian Express.
