How do you know it was his decision and not the BCCI wanting to make a ton of money from a home series in which the public would see their biggest idol for the last time?
If BCCI did all this just to have a home series farewell for Tendulkar, (without him asking for it, which is extremely unlikely) Tendulkar is still partly at fault.
If BCCI did this because Tendulkar wanted a home farewell and he specifically asked for one, leading to the SA series being shortened, then I'm sorry, he is definitely at fault.
interesting discussion this

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 get your point but what do you mean he is partially at fault?
2) Take the offer of retiring at home getting a well deserved farewell at home but thus putting in further jeopardy an important tour to the No. 1 team
Hence partially at fault.

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
