The recent records says that tendulkar is not playing at his best.. Do you agree with that.. or do you think its his bad luck for not scoring runs regularly? Really do you think he is a great player.. and is he capable of scoring the runs again as he did 10 years back.

Its a fact that Tendulkar is not at his best. But, his contribution to the team cannot be considered little. Like in the second ODI, his bowling was one of the reasons for an Indian victory. He should bat freely as before, should not worry about the responsibilities or think about records. Then we could see Sachin again. Hope to see him in his prime form in the World cup!

Even if he is not the best, he has topped the list with maximum runs scored in the last 14 matches when you compare with all other players.. do you still say that he is not at his best.

Just the number of runs scored does not give a clear indication. For example, he scored 14 runs in the second innings of the deciding match at SA. But, he inflicted self-doubts on other players including Dravid who was at the other end. Even in the third ODI, his approach is very difficult to understand. He scored only 2 or 3 fours in his half-century.

But do you agree that he is great player.. is it temporary loss of form or he cant come back to his best ever?

I dont know why do people complain so much about tendulkar.... He is just the best batsman in the world...And i know people have lots of expectations from him..but why ain't we satisfied with him when he scores 60 of 70 balls I think thats just okkay he cant be as fit and as swift as he was 10 years earlier but he still has an average of over 44 after playing 370 odd matches is just awesome His presence is just enough to get the opposition under pressure for me he is just the best And i don't find any problems in him

age is big factor my friend,but in his case i think it is the menatl makeup tendulkar has right now.one he is too secure and probably he has started getting bored of the same thing over and over again.

well according to me he is not laying that good what he played in past.i think he is playing like a new comer.he is playing quiet safely and get outed every time.i think he dont even think of it anymore,he just have to play his best game with some good strike rate.because he proved everything about his game now he just have to destroy enemy bowling attack.

sachin may not be playing well presently.. but he will bounce back.. remember that sachin has been a major victim in umpiring flaws..and injury has also taken a toll on him.. he is constantly under pressure of performing..i dont think any player can sustain such pressure other than sachin.. sachin will be back with a bang!!! watch out other teams!!

I never feel Sachin Tendulkar is not playing at his best. He had some problems with his injury which surly has an effect on his batting. But as a cricket you see him 100 percent towards cricket. Take the matches he has contributed with the ball and the fielding and his involvement as a senior player towards young guys. He is no doudt the best player of cricket.

i agree with u,i hope that he will regain his best as soon as possible because he is so classy player and he has scored so many runs.the cause of this poor form is lack of confidence and lack of hungryness to score more runs.

Hope so.. but im thinking there is more pressure on him.

In the third odi against WI, Sachin made a good 60. But the say he made it was quite pityful. He had just 2 boundaries to his account. All the others were mere singles. Could not compare his play to the astounding and great shot selection of Robin Uthappa who was at his best.

The records are there to keep they are recorded after the game has been played, they didn't state the player's condition, condition of the pitch and bad umpiring and such factors that can make you think otherwise. Sachin is playing well and he should continue play even after the world cup, he is the great batsmen, there are always bad phases in one's life and sachin is tackling it beautifully. I think sachin is the best batsmen in this world. Sachin is capable of scoring runs and he would score big in recent series and in world cup too. my wishes are always with him.

We can't ever say that sachin is not playing well.. Every bats man at the critical stage of reaching 100 will be nervous.. but they not showing off.. some times they get off from the victory,, we praise them as not a best bats man...

Tendulkar has already played his best play. I do not know you people how much expect from him more. I think his present till world cup and few matches after that will be sufficient to wind up. After world cup he will be announced as Captain and will retire after that. We should pray God for his best performance.

Tendulkar is not playing at his best in my opinion.He is not scoring the big hundreds.It has nothing to do with bad luck.One can't play consistently throughout a career.He is going through one of those lean patches.It is so rare for him to go through one.He is a great player and he is capable of scoring runs again as he did before.

He can never be the same as he was a decade ago. I think he will retire soon.

He is not the batsman as the past now . So, we should not expect more from him

he may not be at his best form now. but he is a genius I believe he will get back very soon.

yes the recent records says that tendulkar is not playing at the best .....yes i agree with that and after the injury he played 30 macthes and his average is 5.0 per matches and he is dismised at 0 for more than 10 times ..and he is really capable of scoring the runs again as he did 10 year back

there is nothing to think about. I think it is very prominent that he is not in his best form and also I think he cannot get back to his form row. He has played a lot of international cricket and now I think he is tired and with the injuries I think he cannot make a good comeback. It would be better if he makes a healthy retirement after the World Cup because his contributions to the team is not up to the mark. But, we should not forget that he is still one of the best ever batsmen in the world and also the best in our country and so we should give him the rspec which he is entitled to and not behave the way Ganguly was done.
