I just want to ask this question to all Cricket fans outside Maharashtra (of course Pune supporters too are there). How many of you will be supporting Mumbai Indians if Sachin is not playing for that franchise? My Guess is almost 90% of the fans following outside mumbai will come down if Sachin is not going to play for Mumbai... I am eager to know about other's reaction to this.

I'm from "Hyderabad" in Andhra pradesh the home of "Deccan chargers". I'm a huge Sachin fanatic and have been supporting Mumbai Indians From the first edition of IPL due to Sachin. Most of my friends also support MI instead of Deccan chargers only for the sake of the Master.

There is no doubting that Sachin is the icon player for MI. It would depend on what players continue to play for MI. If people like Bhajji are in there, they could still get the support. Cheers! Ram

Now my most Favorite team in IPL is MI and that is only because of Sachin. I dont like to see sachin in the loosing side.. But if sachin is not there then MI will like one of my other teams that i like( not favorite) I also support your view that 90% of the fans following outside mumbai will come down if Sachin is not going to play for Mumbai...

The truth is that when someone support a team it is not because there is only one player. The real support means the support for the whole team. So if even Sachin is not there the real mumbai india fans will support mumbai indians!
