He said nothing bad about Sachin. He is just referring to the fact that when he played, he used to carry the team. He got hundreds but the team still used to loose. His centuries used to be in vain.

Now he quit so team so he wont pull the team back, and even this decision has been in vain since India lost anyway.

In both the cases he tried his best, but his effort was in vain.

And personally I see others saying Sachin played for himself. If all 11 players play for themselves, the team cannot loose. Your job isnt to worry about how others are playing. Just take care of how you play and thats all you need to do. It wasent his fault that dispite his best efforts, the rest of the team just wasent good enough to make use of his runs.

@The_Mystery_Ball How many matches Misbah-ul-Haq won us and how many he lost for us. @ maxymax If Sachin is not Legend then non of them is, look at his records and figures and compare them with all of them you will have your answer.

Good one, Satish! Keep up the good work. For those who think SRT is a legend, he nowhere near to the true legends of Cricket like Don, Viv, Lara, Kallis and the likes. SRT played just for himself and not the team. Only on few occasions it turned out that he was able to see the team through to a win. It's true that he loved the game and was very dedicated to it and was gentlemen. But he always played for himself.

Hi Satish, Please stop saying again and again about SRT, he is and will be a legend. If some score century and lose the match it is team's fault for not capitalizing on one's effort.... Please stop these cartoon so that we will continue to adore your arts...

@ Shehzad Nizamani Misbah is a great player and it was only because of his captaincy and calmness that we have avoided many hairy situations in the past. It is a dillemma of our nation that we go after strike rates rather than averages.

India did lose by six wickets. Thanks to Muhammad Zaheer for pointing out the error. This has now been fixed
