Impossible to replace Tendulkar: Dravid

Former captain Rahul Dravid has said it will be impossible to replace Sachin Tendulkar once the senior India batsman retires from international cricket but added the game will go on. ‘I don’t think you should look to replace him, it will be impossible. There is a lot of talent there and they have to become who they want to be. When Sunil Gavaskar retired people said where would the next Sunil Gavaskar come from but then we had Sachin Tendulkar come through,’ Dravid told the BBC Radio 5 Live show. Tendulkar has retired from ODI cricket last year but is expected to carry on with his Test career for some time. ‘For a whole generation of people it is going to be strange because they have grown up with Sachin but it is inevitable. It will happen. People move on. It is life. Cricket will go on. It is bigger than any individual. The greats have played before him and will continue to play after him,’ he added.
