Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has retired from ODIs, but his heart is still with the Indian team.

Making his first media appearance since announcing his retirement from the One-day Internationals, Tendulkar expressed hope that India will bounce back in the ongoing series against arch-rivals Pakistan.

Tendulkar was optimistic about India's chances despite the home team trailing 0-1.

"I watched matches occasionally on TV in Mussoorie. Though I am no longer part of the ODI team, my heart is still with the team. I will continue to support the team. I have no doubts that the Indian team will bounce back. For this the team needs good wishes and support from the fans," Tendulkar said on Wednesday.

Tendulkar and his family have so far visited Mussoorie three times and the environs of the famous hill station have left the cricketer spellbound.

The cricketing legend enjoyed long walks with his family in Landour, which has a thick cover of Deodar and oak trees.

On his present visit, Tendulkar said: "It is a fantastic place. In 23 years of my cricketing career, the schedule was so tight that I had little time to spend with my family. In Mussoorie, I enjoy time with my family. We went for long walks, played table tennis, badminton and tennis ball cricket. I have had a lot of fun here. I enjoyed the privacy and I am thankful to the media for this."

Tendulkar concluded his 10-day tour on Wednesday, after celebrating Christmas and New Year, and will now head to Mumbai.

He will join the Ranji Trophy team for its quarter-final match against Baroda.

Terming his 23-year career "memorable," Tendulkar thanked all his supporters and teammates.

The batting maestro was holidaying with his wife Anjali, son Arjun and daughter Sarah.

Tendulkar was staying at the house of his close friend and business partner Sanjay Narang, at the Sister Bazar.
