Nice end to his domestic career
Quite a few edges in that innings for Sachin. Lucky to have been undefeated.
Thought he looked well past it.

Good end to his domestic career, hope he has a similar end to his international
He should play on in domestic cricket after he retires and give back to the game like Ponting did. Selfish in a way itbt.

He should form a Tendulkar's Invitational XI, and play random matches with whichever side he sees fit. Maybe have a crack against old Lashings once in a while. Get some past greats, some new blood. Could be..... what's the word?
I imagine now what it must be like for the youngsters to have played with him in the last few years. How helpful is the presence of Sachin in the dressing room? How much has he helped Dhoni and Kohli develop, not to mention the others? Probably a large amount. It seems reasonable to think having him in the dressing room makes everyone conduct themselves with a little more dignity and integrity than they would have otherwise. Perhaps I am slightly delusional. The only person we can compare him to in this respect is Jacques Kallis. He must have a similar effect, though to a lesser degree, I suspect, primarily because of the slightly different position and awe Sachin holds in the eyes of the Indian cricketers who have grown up loving him so much.
I never thought I would say this, but I wish he could stay in the dressing room. It might become a lesser place, not in terms of batting prowess (since he is not great anymore), but in terms of how it conducts itself. I so hope it doesn't. Actually, I really hope his final legacy is that the dressing room occupants continue to follow his example for a long time, and they always remember what an honour it is to be in that dressing room, where Sachin had once taken guard with so much character...
Would be weird to have a middle aged bloke who doesn't play cricket hanging around in the dressing rooms itbt.
More chance of getting your bat re-gripped in the change rooms you reckon Tangy?
