    Should Sachin Tendulkar retire from International Cricket?

    I think so. His downfall starts from beginning of this Century. He is not at all that Tendulkar we saw in 90s. Surprisingly no one has the dare to make comments about his batting faultiness. I think this is one of the major reason for his downfall. In all these years he struggled to play strokes on offside. I hardly saw a productive cover drive from him. Now he makes some silly excuses for his poor performance. I remember one famous proverb: “A bad workman blames his tools”. This is the story with Tendulkar. I think his presence may prove costlier for India in the next World Cup. I am damn sure he is not going to be dropped from the team for any reason. No one has the guts to do that( ). For the benefit of the team he should say good bye to international cricket.

    i agree he is not the same as the 90's but i still think he is good enough to be in the team, i mean sure he is not in the best of form right now but in his score of 60 yesterday he played some awsome shots, which indicates he still has the ability to play good. i think he should definatly play till the world cup, after the world cup its up to him if he wants to retire.

    He's not playing that badly in ODI's but his Test form hasn't been that flash. I can't understand the point of this thread though, the man is arguably the second greatest batsman to ever play cricket and you are kicking him when he's down, I'm sure that wouln't be the case if he scored a century in the final ODI to save India's bacon. No, everyone insisting he should be dropped (with the exception of JustTool) would probably be praising him endlessly. Give the man credit where it's due. You have to back someone like this to bat himself out of his poor test form.

    From 2001 up until the 3rd ODI game against the West Indies Sachin Tendulkar has scored 6057 runs @ 61.81 in ODI's. In Test's during the same period, from 2001 until present he has scored 4252 runs @ 51.22. People talk about him "no longer being what he used to be in the 90's", and sure he was excellent back then but he's no slouch in this time frame either.

    Definitely not in ODIs - Tendulkar is still one of the best ODI players in the world. In Tests, I think the time could be coming although he batted fairly well on the South African tour.

    He should retire whenever he wants. The question about whether or not the Indian selectors should drop him is a different one, but the answer is still no. Not yet, anyway.

    Not at the moment. But IMO there is a good case for him to "do a Lara" and retire from ODIs after WC.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....

    No he should not retire, however he should not be picked just because he is Sachin Tendulkar.

    Even when he's more valuable to India in ODIs than Tests right now?
    The case with Lara is that he's still a very bankable Test batsman and has really declined (largely due to his batting position) in ODIs of late. Tendulkar may be struggling in both forms, but he's had more success in ODI cricket lately. I don't see much value to him retiring from one form of the game and continuing in the other.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
