Sachin: I'll continue to play as long as Iím enjoyingSachin Tendulkar will play his 170th Test at Mohali on Friday but even after over 20 years in international cricket the senior India batsman says he never takes anything for granted and his success is a reflection of his constant hard work.
ďThere 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 itís important to complete that circle and thatís what has happened in my career,Ē Sachin said.
Tendulkar said there are no short cuts to success.
ďI donít 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 thatís what I try to do,Ē he said.

Tendulkar holds most batting records under his belt and is on the verge of reaching 14,000 runs in Test cricket. Closely following him is Australian skipper Ricky Ponting with 12,026 runs but Tendulkar said he doesnít want to talk about records.
