"Tendulkar still has hunger to play cricket," Chauhan said. Chauhan, who partnered with legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar for a long time before retiring from the game in 1982, said Tendulkar was the best judge himself to call it a day at a right time.
"Though he (Tendulkar) has not scored a century in Test matches for the last two year, but he still has a lot of potential and hunger to keep playing the game", Chauhan said.
The former Test opener said that Gautam Gambhir had chance to return to the national team.     

Chauhan, who played 40 Tests, said Virat Kohli had tremendous potential as India's future captain.
"He (Kohli) proved himself as a good captain in the recent West Indies Tri Series which India won and also at Zimbabwe tour," the cricketer-turned BJP leader said.
"His (Kohli) aggressive attitude and cool head even in trying times makes him a fit candidate to lead team India in future," Chauhan said.
About cricket in Bihar, Chauhan said that the state had produced some good cricketers like Saba Karim, Amikar Dayal and Avinash Kumar. He paid a visit to cricket academy run by Dayal at St Xaviers School and encouraged youngsters.
He expressed displeasure over fight between different cricketing bodies in the state for affiliation to the BCCI.
Chauhan urged them to come on one platform under former cricketer and BJP MP Kirti Azad.
