This is a small thread on Sachin Tendulkar and I want people to comment on his decision.
I want Sachin Tendulkar to go to the Caribbean and play for India in the T20 WC. Because, Tendulkar is in great form these days and he is not slogging like other players, he is playing Twenty20 with some great cricketing shots mostly fours and he is scoring runs at a strike rate of 155 which is pretty good.
The reason he is a bit reluctant is because, he has played only one T20 game in his career and he opted out of this format because, he thinks that if he fails to score or, if he scores slow then people will criticize him and may suggest him to retire and vacate the place for a younger player. This kinda reaction is normal. And, by declining the offer Sachin is making it clear for everyone that he cannot be taken for granted because, he has not played T20 since 2007 and if he fails in the tournament it will be a kinda “bay-izzati” for him, because he is such a great player. But, he should not think like this because, he is above all the players.
What Sachin needs to understand is right now with his form he is better than many players in the current team. Besides, when he is in the team other players have some kinda comfort that he is there and that makes them play better. Therefore, for team’s sake and for the sake of his country he MUST play for India in the T20 WC in Caribbean.
I want newguy, Varun, Khansahab, Munir et all to express their views and if they agree with me they must push this case hard and let this message create some ripple effects and reaches to the ears and mind of the maestro and he changes his mind and play for India in the T2o WC and he may retire from this format after the World Cup. But, he is definitely playing for India in the ICC WC 2011 in India.
GO SACHIN GO —————>
