400 Just Happens to be a Number!

That's true. He doesn't care that he's played that many ODI's. He doesn't care the only other player who has played more ODI's than him (Sanath Jayasurya, another all-time great) has actually got more than 3000 runs less than him :).

We lost that ODI to Aussies. He should have carried on to make yet another century, but Lee got the better of him when he was on 47.

Kudos, yet again and yes, I hope Dilip Vengsarkar (the BCCI chief) gives importance to performance and not age, while choosing the team.

If Tendulkar should have played, but played for what?

1. For India not loosing to mighty Aussies OR
2. For yet another century?

I think Tendulkar has walked a long way now for addition of any more centuries to his kitty.

Under crisis situation, he often has not delivered and today's innings was yet another display of it. Although he made 47 (hight of the innings) but the way he got out, was not good at all given the fact that he was beaten in one of the previous deliveries by same Brett Lee, who eventually got him out.

I agree with you.

Tendulkar should be banned from ODI's for
underperforming for years!


I am really amazed how mediocre players like Sachin Tendulkar can play for years together ...

I think you are too much in love (which I greatly appreciate) of his achievements/success that you tend to ignore his failures. You are not ready to take any criticism of his game.

A thing of beauty is joy forever and
there is nothing wrong with falling
in love with these things, I suppose.

So, yes, I love the way Sachin follows his cricketing religion and not many people can do so for more than 18 years.

I attempted to write my comment here 2/3 times but could not complete it, because I think there is no end to this debate so I am concluding this here forever.

I did think from all possible angles, and see that there is nothing perfect in this world. In fact "it's difficult to improve perfection" :). Even Sir Don Bradman could not achieve the Test average of 100 but 99.94.

Love(ing) something is a great experience and the honest thing in this world. But at the same time, they say that Love is Blind.
