Kolkata: Lauding champion batsman Sachin Tendulkar's contribution, opener Gautam Gambhir on Friday said the Mumbaikar's career has encouraged generations of Indians to love the game.

"Sachin's contribution to Indian cricket cannot be expressed in words. He has inspired us and he will be inspiring next generations too," said Gambhir on the sidelines of a programme.

Tendulkar will play his 199th Test match in Eden Gardens before he bids adieu to international cricket at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai after playing his 200th Test.

When asked to share special moments that he shared with Sachin on and off the field, Gambhir said, "There are many such memories and it is really hard to pick up one."
