quote-unquote and the one they forgot...

Quoted in all newspapers/internet sites today regarding Sachin Tendulkar's alleged retirement plans:
"I enjoy every moment I have on a cricket field, but the recovery times between games these days are difficult, especially for one-day internationals, and that's my major obstacle.

"It does take its toll on the body. When you are 22 or 23, you recover a lot more quickly. But at 34, it's not so easy."

What they forgot to add (part of the same interview):
"My body will tell me when I have played enough cricket, but I don't feel old just yet. I still think I'm a young boy at heart."

Indian media - more entertainment than substance.
