Gaurav Dubey asks:
There's a Sachin Tendulkar-shaped hole in the Indian batting line-up in one-day internationals. In December, Tendulkar had announced his retirement from the shorter format, bringing to an end one of the great careers.
Why did he do it? Was he needed to do it? Should he have carried on a little longer?
