Kolkata: Tendulkar is improving day by day and looking at the way he is playing, it seems he can play till 50 years, former Australia captain Steve Waugh said in Kolkata.
'Instead of waning with age, Sachin Tendulkar is getting better with every passing day'
Steve Waugh had earlier compared Tendulkar with Sir Don Bradman.
Speaking to reporters at Kolkata, he also lauded Indian coach Gary Kairsten's way of work while describing the jobs of a captain and a coach.
"The captain is always the boss on the field, as he has to be on the spot. The coach on the other hand plays a supporter's role quietly. Look at Kirsten. He goes on about his job very quietly which is exactly the coach's role."
Steve Waugh has tipped India as favorited to win the second edition of the ICC World Twenty20 to be held in England in June.
"Indians have a very good side.... The youngsters are really impressing and the IPL has done good for them.
"But Australians also have a strong chance for the title," he said.
Steve Waugh was on a visit to Udayan , a rehabilitation home for children from leprosy colonies at Kolkata.
