He should but he won't.

Honestly hope he plays on for as long as he wants. It's not his responsibility and he doesn't deserve to have to end his own career just because the selectors don't have any guts.

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
Aside from that, as I said in another thread, is there someone who will come in and be a better option? Again, I don't follow Indian cricket enough to know but if him being replaced wont improve the side then my first point is irrelevant anyway.
I cringed reading a stack of people saying Paul McCartney should retire because he clearly still loves performing. If nobody wanted to watch him then he's have no audience to perform to anyway. I mean its a bit different because I saw Macca live a year ago and it was absolutely exceptional, but the point for me is that if someone loves doing something then why would they choose to jack it in? If others decide you're no longer good enough then so be it but if you're wanted and you want to do it, why stop?
All I'd say is that if the selectors do decide its time, they should ask him if he'll come out and say it's his decision. That would be a satisfactory way of getting around what I said in my first paragraph, but I don't know how feasible it is, all in all.
I think this should be his last test. But most likely he'll bid adios in the Australian series.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
If I was a selector, I'd call him up and ask him when he plans to retire. If the answer is anything other than 'now', or at the absolute worst, 'the next series', I would tell him that it needs to be one of those answers because he will not be selected for any more Tests at this point unless he goes back to Ranji and earns his spot again.
Naaa naaa naaa na na na naaa...na na na naaa...**** off.
Not my favourite Macca song but being there for that is unreal
Sachin McCartney should definitely retire now though, he's lost it. Should play us out with Band On The Run in his last Test.
Now I'm confused.
Laxman is spelt like Lennon if you ignore the middle of both words.
he should retire after England test series what you guys think
Another interesting point which has been touched on here is that it is really not Sachin's job to decide whether he deserves his place in the team or not. There is a panel of selectors (I assume) who get paid to decide who makes the team. If they don't have the balls to drop him and he decides to play on til he dies of old age and his average drops below 30 then power to him.
