'Not aware of Sachin's talks with Patil'

Mumbai, Nov 28: BCCI on Wednesday has revealed that it was not aware of Sachin Tendulkar's talks with chief selector Sandeep Patil, after a TV report suggested that the veteran cricketer had asked the selectors to take a call on his future following his poor form in Tests.

Take a call on my future: Sachin tells selectors

"I am not aware of it," said BCCI secretary and senior selection panel convener Sanjay Jagdale when contacted in Indore for his reaction to media reports on Monday that Tendulkar spoke to chief selector Sandeep Patil before Tuesday's selection meeting at the Board headquarters here.

According to media reports, Sachin Tendulkar had a chat with Sandeep Patil where they discussed about his future plans having played for 23 years now.

The legendary cricketer who has not registered a century since Jan 2011, has been drawing a lot of attention in the last few months, following his poor form, as he has not scored more than 30 runs in any of the last 10 innings, stating that he is struggling hard to score runs.

Moreover, his dismissals also suggest that he is unable to take guard, as he has been bowled by pacers and spinners in the calendar year, which has also led to a debate on Sachin Tendulkar's retirement.

The new selection committee that met on Tuesday to pick the squad for the third Test against England following India's humiliating 10-wicket-loss at Mumbai, also spoke to Tendulkar and discussed about his future plans, according to a TV report earlier in the day.
