International Tests

comment on the article

Sachin Tendulkar on Friday has opted out of the Irani Trophy to be played from September 24 in Baroda.


Tendulkar pulled himself out of the Rest of India squad after Indian team's physio advised him more rest for his injured elbow.


However, he will be available for India's first Test against Australia that starts on October 10.


The Master Blaster hurt his elbow in the third Test against Sri Lanka in July this year, and had to pull out of the One-Day series that followed.


He was declared fit and picked for the Irani Trophy squad that will play Ranji Champions Delhi in a four-day match.

It is sad if India were to still rely heavily on Sachin like the late 90s when he's well past his prime although his presence would undoubtedly be a boost to the quality of the side

Hey throw him out, he is quite selfish about his carrer he plays for himself not for the country.

How many matches he won for country?? which is quite countable and megre compared to number of matches he has played!!!!

His aim is to make more money in coming world cup with out contributing with the bat in the process having more sponsors.

In Asia, we have a problem that we forget what happened yesterday very easily. It is sad to see how most of you have forgotton how Sachin Played for yur country. How much he has contributed to the Indian cricket and how it was a nightmare for every bowler in the world to get him out. I agree that he is a little slow in one day Cricket but he is still the No 01 batsmen in the world at Test level. Dont go by the recent records. He is going thru a bad patch. Every good batsman in the world has gone thru that and unfortunately it came a little late for Sachin. Let him pass this peroid and he will come back just like the Sachin we saw 4 years ago! Dont just discard him. There is a lot more he can do and do it better than most of the others. Sachin is Sachin and no one will ever be able to replace the master. He is still the best for Tests out of all the others in the Indian team. I dont belive he needs to make more money and he is greedy for money. This is unacceptable. He loves Cricket.

He is certainly not the no.1 test batsman. Can think of 10 batsman I'd pick above him.

Regarding you comment - You have to realise that he's been playing at International level for more than 17 years and has been a very consistent run scorer for the best part of those years. Talk about the 10 players who you think are above him when they reach that level or are able to play that many years and the records will show who is how much better. At one point Tendulkar, Brian Lara and Mark Waugh were considered the best 3 batsman in the world in the 90's and who's the one still going on..that's what differentiates outstanding from the best. Give the man his due, he may be past his prime but can still score runs and contribute to the team.

Why every one is going on about these players making money,dont u all go to work to make money inspite of most workers being useless.The four players in question are very very good players,so u have 4 old ones and 7 young guns let us see what the young guns do,lot of the new players have come and gone they were not up to the scratch,so these players will go when the time comes but not yet.
