Vaughan says Tendulkar should retire after Nagpur Test for sake of Indian teamLondon: Former England Test captain Michael Vaughan has urged legendary Sachin Tendulkar to retire from international cricket for the sake of Indian team following his below par performances during the ongoing Test series. “England’s performances in the last two Tests have been as good as anything I have seen from it, either as a player or a fan, and should leave Sachin Tendulkar heading into retirement after the Nagpur Test,” Vaughan wrote in his column for the Telegraph. “It is time for Tendulkar, great player that he is, to walk away now for the sake of the Indian team.


Last week we had a call from a legend, a great, in Ricky Ponting. He felt his time was up and realised a young player would take his place,” he added. “I am hoping that Sachin will also accept he has to make his own call. There is no one strong enough in Indian cricket to go and knock on his door and say time is up,” he further wrote. Vaughan added: “Sometimes senior players stick around for too long and the team gets stuck in a rut. When you want so desperately to finish with a hundred in your last few games, it actually becomes harder and harder. You can want something too much.” “I am sure he is still a magnificent role model in the dressing room and is respected by everyone, but it is horrible to see these greats go on too long and playing badly at the end,” he wrote. “Eventually even Sachin has to move on. It will take a while to get used to life without Sachin but it might bring new energy into the set-up,” he concluded.

Truly said, but this is not right time to talk about his retirement. I think Sachin should retire when he is playing like ``Sachin the God of cricket``. But I feel Sachin should now think about it seriously and take a call. We don`t feel good when someone criticize a gr8 legend like Sachin. Our sincere request to him, please think about it and take your own decision. All the very best to you, Sachin.

i think that there is no wrong in indian batting, the bowling condition is more poor. i think that irfan is the suitable bowler in these condition. he is a hard working bowler. he never disappoints us. he should play in nagpur.
