After Kapil Dev urged Sachin Tendulkar to have a meeting with selectors, a report in the Hindustan Times quotes a source as saying that the batsman, in his talk with Sandeep Patil, wanted the selectors to take a decision on his career.
"They had a frank discussion, and Tendulkar told Patil that since he is not getting runs, he would like to leave it to the selectors to take a call (on his retirement)," the cricket board insider was quoted as saying.
Tendulkar, who did score a century in the Ranji Trophy before the England series, has failed to score considerable runs in the first two Tests.
In the recently concluded Wankhede loss, the right-hander managed to score a total of only 16 runs, falling twice to Monty Panesar in the process.
In the first Test in Ahmedabad, he scored only 13 runs.
The selectors have already announced the team for the third Test and have made only one change— the inevitable inclusion of Ashok Dinda for the injured Umesh Yadav.
