No cricket without Sachin for Madhuri Dixit

Mumbai, Nov 16 (IANS) Actress Madhuri Dixit says it is hard to imagine the world of cricket without master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who has retired from international cricket after a 24-year long career.

She hopes the legend passes on his art to other aspirants.

"He is an inspiration for so many people. It is very painful for all his fans that this is his last cricket match," she added.
