30 Days, 30 Questions: What will you advice Tendulkar?

Yahoo! Cricket kicks off a month-long exchange of views. Here's the first topic.

Dr.Inder K Sachdev:

Retire gracefully. And await a chance, to knock 100th 100 finally, that should be offered to you sometime. The world adores you and your cricketing style. Offer chance to youngsters the way it was given to you at the beginning of you career.


Retire Gracefully. You have done enough. What more are you trying to accomplish? And for what reason? Why not be considerate enough to give the youngsters a chance before they burn out. Try and be in their shoes and see it from their point of view then say.......I QUIT!


If there are hundred reasons for Sachin to play on, there is one reason why he should go. No one likes to see a wounded genius, a genius who combined the best of the best with his wonderful exhibition of stroke play ever since he walked out to bat at 16 plus in Sialkot on a wintery morning with the likes of Imran, Akram, Waqar and Quadir lining up to tear up the kid. They ended tearing up their own lachrymal glands. Sachin is the God of Cricket and no one dares to point at God. But the fact is even the most die hard fan of the Legend hates to see a dissapointed Sachin walk back to the pavilion hands empty. Age catches up with everyone and Sachin is human too.By denying him a fitting finale we will only end up egging a aging warrior to play so that we might continue to delight in his presence at the crease and in the field even if he fails. We all Love Sachin. We will continue to Love him even if he quits. Take a bow Sachin...You are waiting to be venerated and celebrated at the Altar of Greatness....Good bye for now...
