N. Srinivasan is arguably the most powerful man in world cricket at the moment. As BCCI boss, he has trashed all calls for Sachin Tendulkar’s retirement and argued that Indian cricket needs Sachin for the tour of South Africa in December-January for a Test series. In a candid chat with Boria Majumdar, Srinivasan speaks of why India still needs Sachin, his memories of Sachin’s career and the cricketing legacy of the Master Blaster.

Sachin is turning 40 on April 24, and of late, there have been calls for his retirement. You have vehemently opposed such calls and said India needs Sachin in South Africa. Could you please elaborate?
