Why some people in India hate Sachin Tendulkar ?

I really don't understand why some people in India hate Sachin tendulkar a lot..They say the reason as " he is selfish " and hungry for scoring runs only for his records.. I won't tell everyone should love Sachin..It's their wish but people who hate Sachin says the reason as he is selfish.. If he scores in a match , then India won't win the match..This is the reason where most of them say..What a stupid concept is this..If others didn't play means what he can do..Why some people start blaming him..And I just read a comment from one website that Sachin is not a match winner..Every time a player can't be a match winner..Even in the test match played against England in chennai is too a crucial one..But Sachin made it possible.. Everyone wants him to play all the time means then that is just stupid..! If he score a century than they say it is for record..huhhh! can't understand these guys..It's very bad.. If a player is selfish then he can't withstand for 20 yrs..He is true , dedicated and particularly not selfish..HE is still Good and will be very Good forever.. When the umpire not gave him out and if he knows that he is out he will just walk away..This has happened many times..If I say this then they will say it is just to create scene..It is just stupid.. What you guys think..Whether I am right or wrong...?

Humm, quite awkward.... I didnt understand how scoring runs is selfish.. the more runs scored the better a chance to win the match.. and the more record beaten.. it will ownly make the teams rank and name bigger.... Suchen has been in teh team since he was 14 years old... A long time... but he might retire in a few years...

I think you are right because here are some peoples who always hates to Sacin Tendulkar. I don't know why they hate to this great player of the world. But I am a very big fan of Sachin Tendulkar. Because many times Sachin has played many winning innings for India. So we can’t ignore their contribution for Indian team.

This is preposterous.... to say something like this about Sachin ... is actually insult cricket itself .. Sachin is probably the one guy who has stuck around for so long ... and never losing his class ... he can't make a team of 11 win all the time ..even so how many innings he has played where he was the only reason that india won If someone is saying like this he has no clue about cricket then

It is the nature of people and that includes the media in particular to either raise a personality like Tendulkar to the highest when he scores or to pull him down and criticise hime heavily when he does not deliver.Everyone expects Sachin to deliver everytime but one should remember that he is just anothe human being and not some demi-god as he is made out to be. Many times in his career he has been given out wrongly, but has anybody seen him disputing or arguing against a decision? Never.At least i haven`t seen him do so. He is a player completely dedicated to his game like Gavaskar and takes whatever decision that comes to him sportingly and in his stride. Yes, it has been seen that many a time whenever he has scored the team has lost but is that his fault? No. It is also the responsibility of his teammates to deliver and not let him do it on his own. There is no other player in the cricketing world who has played so many Tests or ODI`s or scored so may centuries or so many runs. Sachin is one of the worlds greatest player next only to the Do and sometimes i feel that he even surpasses him.Even at this age he is still playing and scoring, so let us rejoice that our country has got a player unequalled in the world of cricket.

First of all, to be very clear, I have never heard someone saying that, Sachin is selfish. And I would not tolerate people saying that. Man, he is God of Cricket(in batting). He has almost consistently kept delivering his best to India. Indian Cricket Team is know by his name at many places. Can you imagine, how many injuries he has got and how hard does he work to perform and maintain his level. He has got injuries in elbow, finger(both hands and legs) shoulder, back, and even though he plays like a rock star. As far is winning is concerned one man cannot alone win the match all the times, although many times Sachin stood as a match winner. Winning a match is a team effort. If the opposite team has made 250 runs and assume for a moment Sachin was selfish and made 105 runs and got out and even though we lost the match, is it Sachin's fault. No not at all. Other members have to contribute evenly. It is all critics who has to tell something different to be different. That's all. You are absolutely right.

Cricket and Tendulkar have now become synonymous and it is difficult to imagine what Cricket would be when 10dulkar stops playing. Those who are successful often have people who hate them for various reasons. For 10dulkar, he is hated by many and it is Indian Culture (thanks to those crappy people who sit back idly and make comments on others). They believe in one theory only - We wont succeed and so we would not let anyone else be successful. Plenty of local adages for these type of people are available in almost every language of India. Those who are successful dont care what the others say or think about them. They just prove time and again that they are successful and 10dulkar is one of such great personalities. No matter what he is the best batsman in the world and there would be hardly anyone like him in our lifetime. I dont know about others but I feel honored to share the earth during his lifetime and playtime... Its been a treat watching him play. Rightly said - "God of Cricket"

hello gany...every experienced player ll walk away if it is out...not only sachin...everyone doesn't want him to play all the time...but when he doesn't play even the team india find way to victory...and most of the people in india if they r sachin fan ,they used to mark other players cheap but praising sachin alone...this is just stupid...and one final thing is team india doesn't depend on him...india can manage victory without him as it happened many times too...but anyhow we must applaud him for his excellent records...

The problem with Sachin is that his supporters call him "GOD", and he himself never tried to dissuade anyone from that, and seems to rather enjoy hearing it.. Well I dont have any problem, if people are naive enough to call him god when he; 1) Cannot play under pressure.The most important quality required for being the Greatest!! Have we not seen that innumerable times, when he fails to score on a big occasion. (Chennai test Vs Pak, World cup final, IPL final, WI Test 1998 and lots of others. And dont give me the argument of his 100's in Australia in the best of 3 finals, as the bowlers had already got aussies down to low score, and there were no batting collapse to pile up pressure then) 2) If you are GOD, then do some miracles!! Saying that he is not to blame, and others also failed, when India looses, doesnt cut, as this is the "GOD" himself right??!! 3)Most of his records have come from longevity, and that doesnt necessarily makes him the best in the world. Proof..Is Muralidharan considered the best bowler of all time , instead of taking 800 wickets?? 4) Has never been a destructive player, except for a brief period during his very young days. Whereas players like KP, Lara, Sehwag, Richards where down right explosive and where far more entertaining. We should not forget the fact that cricket is a sport and ultimately for publics enjoyment, and Sachin is not a Great entertainer.. He is a Very good batsman, but he is NOT GOD, nor the greatest ever!! Well there goes my 2 cents!!!

I f they are saying Sachin is a selfish player,I'm damn sure that they don't know what is cricket....Because if one knows well what is cricket,He knows Sachin more than that.But I have to say thanks to them.Only because of them Sachin is still playing and scoring massive runs just to make their mouth shut.Even if the whole world is against Sachin,I am sure he will play like this,as a batting genius or even more better....

It is because there are still some peoples who are not able to see Sachin Tendulkar to ride upon their personal favourite players. We should praise good cricket and those who delivers it. But there are some people who are just not up to it and they do not want to see the changes.
