Tendulkar Rules Himself Out Of Indian Test Captaincy

Former Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar has said he does not want to take charge of the national Test side at the moment.

India, without a captain following the resignation of Rahul Dravid last month, are yet to make an appointment with a three-Test series against Pakistan their next assignment after the conclusion of the one-day international series, which India lead 1-0.

"I don't feel right about it at the moment," Tendulkar was quoted as saying by the CNN-IBN news channel."

Indian selectors will meet in two days to decide who will captain the side in Tests, with one-day international captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni amongst the favourites.

Other possibilities include veteran batsman VVS Laxman or his one-day vice-captain Yuvraj Singh.
