    Coming from a decade (the nineties) when India's overseas record looked like this, it's some turnaround and I think he'll be pretty damn content with his achievements.

    If there is a Test championship in 2012 like it is being talked about, then that might be the ideal end.

    He should have one more crack at winning in Australia. That's the only real thing missing.

    Considering almost every Indian player mentioned Sachin when commenting about what they were feeling when they won the World Cup, it's a bit harsh to expect the Indian fans to think differently too.

    I hope he carries on for as long as he is good enough - and I can't see him not being for a while yet

    I would like to see him bat at 3 for India to see what type of scores he can put up with the extra time at the crease.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    yeah, will agree with this assessment.
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I guess Tendulkar is still fit enough and can turn the tables in a match. Sometimes i get envy of him and the mind blowing records he has got on his credit. I guess Indian Govt should honor him with a national award now. As far as his retirement concerns, i guess he's still fit enough to participate in few more series.

    I don't think that the Indian government honoring him with some award will really add greatly to his stature.

    The ideal thing for him to do would have been to hang his boots after winning the worldcup on his home ground, it would have almost been like life coming a full-circle for him.

    Having said that he still has the drive to play on and therefore he should keep playing for as long as he can becuase let's be honest the game of cricket would certainly be poorer without him and we all are just privileged to have been able to see him play.
