burden of Indian cricket......
it seems that all the negative comments about sachin are from those who have not watched his entire career and too young to understand ones devotion towards game. I have found no one so devoted to his game not a single man in India's bench is so devoted, passionate and honest towards his game and country. We have seen people like Kambli, Ajay Jadeja, Rohit sharma, Ravindra Jadeja they were and they are very talented but after gaining some name and fame from cricket lost their game itself for so many times it happened with so many cricketers. Man its not easy to maintain yourself when you gain so much name fame from your deeds, that's where the devotion and passion towards the game comes. He has build so many young players in the squad by just guiding and setting examples for them Yuvi and Virat are supreme examples of it. We need Sachin for Indian cricket at least one or two more years so that the players like Rohit , Raina, Pujara, Rahane can learn from him, how to play test cricket.
@Ska. Did I mention Nasser Hussain at all in my comments??????? As far as I know Nasser Hussain talked about all Indian players. I am only talking about 1 SENIOR PLAYER OF THEM ALL.
@India_On: Are you inferring that Nasser Hussain was right? I don't disagree.
@maddy20 - That'll only make them the worst team in Asia.
But Sachin is slow while fielding. His throws are not accurate any more and he does not dive where he should. In Australia his fielding performance was pathetic. He only caught the balls that came directly to him.
We need young blood now in our team. Sachin has played enough cricket and has broken umpteen batting records. It is time for him to move on and give young people chance to make their own mark.
what indian fans forget is that Tendulkar isnt doing this for you guys. He goes out there 1) because of his love for the game 2) he gets a huge sum of money in return and fame too. All cricketers play the game for personal gains including Tendulkar. Just like a surgeon who charges a lot of money for his services so does Tendulkar. They are not doing anyone any favors. Theyre doing it for themselves.
if you think, our team has good bowlers to defend any score then they could've defended this score... this score is not big but not small either.. stop blaming one person.. it's easy to criticize
Like Kohli said during world cup final - Sachin has carried the burden of Indian cricket for more than 20 years ! ITs not just the burden to score every single time .. but also the burden and blame for losses - when the real blame shd have been put on the bowlers .. 18 balls 37 to defend - and the bowlers make a messs of it .. and finally ppl convenently blame sachin s hundred .. stop this nonsense ..
so how much do you need to defend the total against bangladesh, 350. pathetic bowling.. thats what lost the match. refer the following match with pakistan. stop blaming tendulkar.
