I am only person who do not like sachin in whole india. Humility should not make anyone GOD. You guys are reducing standards of GOD.

What a player? Today if you see the India team Tendulkar - 200 tests all the others combined - 175 approx. This tells volumes of the man. Has been entertainer through out and a thorough gentleman. Never let success get over him and has remained humble. We would miss you Sachin and hope and pray that you have a great life post your retirement from international cricket. Hope that you would sign off in style but that is immaterial. You are the best. Never will we see a sportsman of his kind in this lifetime.

India's leading sports icon is bidding good bye today. He is ofter compared with the "DON". Let us pray what happened to the DON does not happen to SRT in is last Test. He may hang up hs boots but can never be forgotten.

No Modern day player has ever played game with such a dedication, conviction, honesty and expectations of a Billion people - for a long playing career of 25 Years. Salute to you Sachin. You are truly a legend. I wish my colleagues at my organization in US could co-relate with it, but all the analogies failed to explain what a phenomenon Sachin is. Sachin, you don't need luck, but best wishes of all the Indians and true sports fans are with for your last test and we hope you Score another Century to retire with a feather in your cap. Thanks for entertaining a Billion for over 25 Years.
