WHY IS SACHIN TENDULKAR SUFFERING FROM POOR PERFORMANCE?
December 6, 2006 3:20am CST
A man with 14,000 runs seems to break down to the category of new comer.What happened to our hero? Is that he is undergoing lack of confidence or still struggling to become Master blaster rather than a good player?

As u say he has scored 14,000 runs. So all this will take a heavy toll on him. He may only be still 33 years old but he has played a lot of cricket. He is the most capped player. So after playing for so much, your reflexes twend to get slower and your game will obviously suffer. Even we Indians expect a lot from whim which will also play on his mind. Not to talk about all the injuries he has suffered. I dont think we will be seeing many good innings from him in the future. I think his best form was in WC03. Unfortunately we didnt win the cup that time. We should have won it for his performance but the final was a disaster and thats a different story altogether.

He is definitely low on confidence n the team on a whole not performing well is also a big let down. I think he should return to basics n start playin attackin cricket like the way he used to before. he should not let bowlers bog him down instead he should start dominiating bowlers.

its not just sachin who is struggling....its whole indian team which is not able to perform upto their mark...may be they r not used to these conditions....but what i think sachin will bounce back and will perform at his best in world cup just as what he did in the last world cup...so hope for the best and let him play and we will see our old sachin once again..

WELL yes he is great bastmen there is no doubt about it but now age is catching him and plus because of alot of injuries he had face recently affect his performance alot and its the pressure of the interternal cricket is creating problems for him.my suggestion to all the cricket boards is that they should not inject their players directly in the team after injuries because if u include the players directly in the team after injuries then they cantr perform straight away because of pressure if international cricket so every player must play domestic cricket first then if is in good form there then he will be automatically get selected for his team
