    Is Tendulkar's career now "complete"?

    With the WC win, has he ticked off all the possible boxes in an unparallelled career? Most runs in both formats, top scorer in ODIs, WC, Champions Trophy..

    Maybe one can add series wins in Aus and SA but that might just be taking it too far. Although he definitely has a chance later this year to correct the record in Aus.

    Maybe he should retire right now.

    Like Bradman (99.94), 99 international centuries (not 100) has a memorable ring to it - that little bit if fallibility.

    Nah, he obviously needs another 0.94 centuries.

    He could always shoot for 20,000 ODI runs. That's a nice round number, and it's not far away.

    Yep, time for Sachin to Quantum Leap out of there, I reckon

    It's hard to really know whether Sachin himself would consider this to complete his career. Would he be more desirable of taking India to the pinnacle of cricketing excellence that Australia once earned? Making India the undisputed #1 in Test cricket would be a fitting way to move on from World Cup glory.

    This hack's career won't be complete until he has at least one Test 5-fer.

    Once we win in Australia it will more or less be. A few more centuries to put some seperation between him and the rest and he's good to go. Hope he stays on a while though.

    I am the biggest fan of Tendulkar, but come on, India won the World Cup, not Tendulkar. We should stop this obsession about what his career looks like every time India achieve something.

    India are #1 in Tests, he's scored 50 centuries in the format, and now he has just won the world cup on his sixth and final try (remember he was into tennis but like millions of others, got into cricket after 1983 WC...so this was always his dream).

    I think he needs one more international century and will have a career that'll take some beating in terms of pure numbers (well he already does, I don't see many people scoring 99 international centuries).
