Sachin Tendulkar, the cricket legend, the epitome of inspiration,the messiah of Cricket, the synonym to numerous cricket records has finally decided to put his weapons down. Sachin has finally decided that the 200th Test Match he is about to play in Mumbai ground is going to be his last formal game in International Cricket. Test was the only format where he had enrolled himself after retiring from One Day and all other shorter forms of Cricket.The cricketer declared he decided to retire as his heart says so.
Sourav Ganguly has written a column on Sachin’s future and Dhoni’s workload.Well,while there is no denial,he is worth discussing about Sachin’s and Dhoni’s future,seems, no one is bothered about Ganguly’s future in Indian Cricket though he has expressed his desire many a times to be the coach of Team India.
After India has lost against England in the Test Series,there has been questions raised on Dhoni’s captaincy and Sachin’s unwillingness to retire!
M.S.Dhoni,the Team India captain, is of the idea that Gautam Gambhir is playing a self-centered game and has been bothered about his position in the Team and has not been playing keeping the interest of team in mind.Dhoni has lodged a complaint against Gautam Gambhir with the BCCI,regarding the same!
Well, is it just an excuse to divert criticisms against himself or a genuine feedback about Gambhir,only Dhoni knows but this clearly shows that the continued criticism of ‘Captain Cool’ and his captaincy has snatched away the peace of his mind and now he is in a defensive mood.Anyways,no one in Team India is Sachin Tendulkar that his position in Team India would be guaranteed for lifetime. 🙂
Australian Cricketer,Ricky Ponting,the only batsman who could compete with Sachin Tendulkar,in terms of records,has declared his retirement from International Cricket,leaving behind a debate if its high time even Sachin should retire due to his age and continued failure to deliver !
