    Didn't know you could be slatted for simply playing and not taking breaks. Would've though criticism would have been the other way around tbh.

    I am with benchy and PEWS here. He should play if he wants to play. No one can ask him to retire if he is still enjoying being a cricketer (for whatever reasons). Now, if you think he is not good enough to be in the team, it is a totally different discussion. I think he is still easily among the better batters we have. I don't think it is he who needs to change, tbh.. It is just the attitude of everyone towards him that needs to change.. I mean, it was total BS that he ONLY fields at first slip if he needs to be in the slips when we already have an ATG slipper in Dravid there (no matter how indifferent his catching has been, recently).. And this whole thing about "will always bat 4, unless it is a NW ahead of me" is BS as well. I just happen to think it is more about others not being brave enough to go up to him and talk about these things than just him doing what he wishes to do at every point. Surely Fletcher or Dhoni should have the guts to go upto him and say "sorry mate, Rahul is our first slipper, and since you only field there at times, you gotta be 3rd" or ""sorry mate, everyone moves up one number due to Gautam's injury. So you are batting first drop""..

    If you're good enough, you should be in the team. No point discussing it further. Not least because it's incredibly dull.

    So you are saying he should be dropped then because he isn't good enough? Controversial, but I respect your opinion.

    I agree with what Imran Khan said on Tendulkar....No one other than Tendulkar is going to decide when he has to retire... I think the reason he struggled on this tour is because he invariably came in at 20/2 and Tendulkar has never been at his best in those situations. And before the fanatics attack me, I don't mean that makes him a bad player or anything of that sort, its just that some players are at their best in different situations.

    Of course they have in a career span of 190 test matches.....he has batted under all conditions. All I am saying is that he has not been at his best in those situations.

    No, that wasn't what I said at all.
