    Thought about it but as it is my team playing decided against as you know what will happen if you do.

    True that. If he prolongs his retirement further without getting into any kind of form, I think SRT fanboys would be halved by the time he retires.

    Tendulkar is interesting. He has now played in four separate decades - I think he's a little different in terms of memory. I'm 28 now and I was five years old when he debuted - people have literally grown up with him, and people who were adults are now pushing middle age so he's been such a huge overarching figure in so many people's sporting life that I don't think that'll be the case. The kids who only grew up in the past ten years, it's of course a different story.

    If you didn't watch cricket in 1998, you don't really appreciate what he meant. The only useful thing in 1990s for Indian cricket - where winning away series in Zimbabwe seemed impossible.

    12-1 off the last 11 overs. Have we really bowled that well?

    Well, Gambhir and Sachin aren't exactly in great form.

    Probably scared of getting out as well, given the media uproar over their failures with the bat recently. Determined to not lose to England it seems.

    Tendulkar isn't trying to hit out of form. He very much knows what reactions he'll get if he gets out for a 10 in 50 deliveries or so. Still he has so much confidence in his defense! What a great fighter!

    Someone like Pietersen needs to learn this from players like Tendulkar, Dravid, Kallis, Ponting - having confidence in your defense in the worst of times...

    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    Really poor captaincy there, giving him the easy single like that.

    Results of Fletcher's 30-minute throwdown to Tendulkar yesterday showing ... Wish he followed the footsteps of Kirsten in this regard from the start...

    Gambhir goes ... The prospect of watching a Tendulkar-Kohli partnership in an Eden Gardens winter test match... I miss it
