Give us and Sachin a break, please! He's done a lot but now beyond his best. Could contribute little in India's rout in Eng, Aus and now at home. Of course he's been one of the most respected cricketers and a thorough gentleman on-field, surprising for such an achiever. Let's not over-do him..

LOL...very well done Satish! You nailed it, as always! It's a 100% fact that this funny cartoon is depicting. If it was just left to Sachin, he would have retired after the World Cup. It's these greedy business men that have forced him to carry on for their selfish needs.

How can people find humour in such sadistic cartoon...... A man has retired after achieving everything in ODI's and people are making fun of that...?

Satish.... small suggestion. BCCI President should be sitting and ICC President should be standing!

Hahahaha! Spot on. For people who don't get it: FTP=Future Tour Program. BCCI President is saying to ICC that give us more "Test" matches to play in future now that we have lost Tendulkar from ODIs.
