CHURUMURI POLL: Sachin Tendulkar—15,000?

Generally very measured in his words despite his monumental accomplishments, Sachin Tendulkar has let word out that the next peak he is seeking to climb is Mount 15K. Almost as if egging on his ageing body, the Bandra Bomber says he wants to see 15,000 runs against his name before hanging up his Test match boots.

Sachin needs another 2,227 runs to get there. Even if he can keep his current average of 50 going, it means he will have to play another 45 innings. Roughly about 27 Tests. Sachin is now 36. Will he last that long? Will his body take the pressure? Will Twenty20-mad BCCI schedule so many Test matches?
