NEW DELHI: Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar believes Alastair Cook can challenge Sachin Tendulkar’s record if he plays on for another 6 or 7 years. “The big advantage that England always has is that they are always playing a minimum of 11-12 Test matches on an average in a year. In 11-12 Test matches even if you score 50 runs per match you are getting about 500 runs a year. So over the next 6-7 years there might be a period when he might have a terrific year.”
