Given sachin's caliber and his performance in DLF IPL...should sachin play in T20 matches..sighting India's sore defeat in the first T20 matches against srilanka...India was unable to keep wickets,can sachin provide that stability?

In my opinion sachin took a wise decision about not playing in T-20 games. As this format of games mainly require energetic and young guys. Also These games are so much tensed and there are more chances to get iinjuries. So, for his and indian cricket team future he took the good decision.

Hi dear! I think Sachin should be spared/rested for T20 matches. His talent should be utilised for one day cricket and Test matches. He is surely aging and in T20 younger lot can do better. It is my personal opinion and opinions will differe in this matter.

From your point it seems you believe India will will every match that sachin plays in. Dont you think thats a little too much to ask for even from a great player like sachin? I believe Sachin should not play in T20 matches. And I have two reasons for saying this. 1. Sachins playing good doesnt really guarantee teams victory. The 175 he scored in the ODI the other day is a good example. MOreover he is not as agile as he used to be so his fielding would be a burden to the team at times. I dont mean he is a poor fielder all I am saying is a yuvraj , raina or Rohit is anytime better fielder than him at this time. 2. His own fitness. As we have noticed his body needs more time to recover after any series. And playing continuous international cricket will take its toll on the aging body. Resting in some matches would prove beneficialfor him to extend his career significantly.I believe he should also skip someODI seriesalso to give his body a better chance to perform better in More meaningful form of Cricket-Test Match.

Hi, I am the big fan of sachin. Sachin has the ability to format of cricket. But he is not ready to prove his talent in International 20-20. I have read an article about him, says "sachin was thinking 20-20 team was in good form and all the young players are waiting to prove their talents.". By reading, i thought sachin will not play 20-20 games. But he has an enough stamina to prove. Happy mylotting. Have a nice day.
