Tell me your opinions on that, will sachin gives retirement by the year 2011. According to me he shouldn`t, as he still bats as if he was still 20 and with more maturity. Our team requires his presence for more confidence.

well sachin's retirement as absolutely his decision. he's playing etremely well at present and if continues to do so, i dont see any reason for his retirement. but there's also another side to it. in 4 years time, competition will have increased so much and the heavy schedule is already taking its toll on his body. but the fact of the matter remains, if he's fit and in form, he can surely play though i feel the idea is far-fetched. anyway lets hope for d best.

No need....he can play until he die... Sachin tendulkar is a cricketer,but above that he is a human...win and lose will happen in everyone's life.As a true fan we have to congratulate when he plays well and same time we have to support when he is out of form..The problem that sachin faced may happen in every famous stars..I have no doubt about sachin's talent....

I love this man, He was born on 24th April 1974 in Bombay. Made his Ranji Debut at the age of 14 in 1987 for Bombay. Made his Debut both in tests and in ODIs at the age of 16 against Pakistan in Pakistan in 1989 and is still playing. He is great and did wonders for Indian cricket. He achieved many miles stones in his carrier so far, He is first man to score 10000 runs in ODIs and he is leading century maker in ODIs and also in tests, both put together 76, and also he took more than 100 wickets in ODIs. He is 33 now and he can still play 3-4 years of International cricket and He can make 100 centuries combined in tests as well as in ODIs, Made his First Ton in tests against AUS in Perth, he made match saving innings of 114 on a Bouncy Track at Perth in 1991. Made his First Ton in ODIs against AUS in Kolombo, he made 110 in 1994. His ODI highest score is 186 against New Zealand and in Tests 241 not out against AUS. His best ODI bowling figures: 5-40 against AUS odd runs and in Tests 3-30 odd runs Against AUS. Till now he made 41 Tons in ODIs and 35 Tons in Tests, 76 Half centuries in ODIs and 40 odd Half centuries in Tests. He has Most Man of the matches in ODIs than any one else has. He made so far over 14000 runs in ODIs and over 10000 runs in Tests, at the end of his career he will score over 30000 runs in both forms of cricket. At the end of his career he will achieve: Most run getter in Tests, Most run getter in ODIs, Most Centuries made in ODIs, Most Centuries made in Tests, Most Half Centuries made in ODIs, Most Half Centuries made in Tests, Most Man of The Matches in Tests, Most Man of The Matches in ODIs, Most ODIs played, Most Tests played, Most Catches Taken in ODIs, Most Catches Taken in Tests, I think some of his records are unbreakable. I think no one can reach him he is Sachin Tendulkar
