'I don't want to take anything for granted'

“There are ups and downs when you complete a circle of life, its not always about being on the top and in life there are ups and downs but it’s important to complete that circle and that’s what has happened in my career,” Tendulkar said on the sidelines of the unveiling of Nike apparels for Team India.

Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and Pragyan Ojha donned the new clothing, which will be their official jersey in the upcoming one-day series against Australia.

Tendulkar said there are no short cuts to success. “I don’t want to take anything for granted. I have worked hard over the years to be part of the Indian team. The key thing is to continue to work hard and try and get better each day of the life and make sure that you enjoy every moment and that’s what I try to do,” the 37-year-old said.

Asked how old was he when he started playing cricket, Tendulkar said, “I don’t want to talk about that, but as long as I am enjoying, it’s wonderful to be here (I will continue to play).”
On the blue colour in the team clothing, the Mumbaikar said, “I like most shades of blue and orange.”
