wow 7 times bowled
yes Dravid had been in a slump for a long time, much longer than even Ricky Ponting.
I also feel that Ponting is only playing on to set his Ashes record right. (he's mentioned about really wanting to win in England a number of times). he's both mentally and technically shot against good quick bowlers.
Personally, I think he'll get one or two huge scores against Srilanka and stay in the team for another year.
Meanwhile, Tendulkar has absolutely no reason to continue playing at the age of almost 40. couple more failures and he'll feel compelled to announce his retirement.
His play against spinners has declined markedly over the last few years and on top of that he seems to have forgetten how to construct an innings. You find him playing strange shots too often, so he's mentally lost it too.
All in all, the sooner they retire the better for them and their respective teams.
