Former South African batsman Daryll Cullinan would like to see Sachin Tendulkar continue playing cricket forever.

Cullinan, who is in Kolkata as the coach of Kolkata Tigers that will take part in the Indian Cricket League Twenty20 tournament, said, "Sachin Tendulkar should carry on playing as long as he wants. If I could have my way, I would like him to play forever. He is a master batsman...a perfect technician."

"It is such a pleasure to see him on song. I am baffled trying to understand how he has managed his career so well. His game is of such class and high standard. The world cricket looks up to him with awe," he added.

Asked how does he feel when he sees Sachin Tendulkar playing as he has played with him, the Proteas nicknamed 'the new Graeme Pollock' said, "Its amazing! What else can I say?"

Sachin Tendulkar has 37 centuries and 45 fifties in a Test career spanning 18 years.
