I think so. His downfall starts from beginning of this Century. He is not at all that Tendulkar we saw in 90s. Surprisingly no one has the dare to make comments about his batting faultiness. I think this is one of the major reason for his downfall. In all these years he struggled to play strokes on offside. I hardly saw a productive cover drive from him. Now he makes some silly excuses for his poor performance. I remember one famous proverb: “A bad workman blames his tools”. This is the story with Tendulkar. I think his presence may prove costlier for India in the next World Cup. I am damn sure he is not going to be dropped from the team for any reason( ;) ). No one has the guts to do that. For the benefit of the team he should say good bye to international cricket.

Yup he is not the same and he is not accepting it.. We keep on hearing from him tht my body is getting older and its not flexible as before blah blah.... Now when u think tht in ur mind I don't think u will be any better in cricket field... See example of mcgrath.... just days before retiring he was saying I still feel like 22 yr old man... Its all in attitude....Also sachin nowdays is making very bad gestures when getting out (like going down on knees on the pitch).... He just don't look like sachin anymore.... sad but true :(

He is now a collector of runs rather than contributing to India's victory, just makes his average look healthy........makes his customary 30-40 runs and get out to play ludo with Sehwag in the dressing room. :Last time score was 199-54 in favour of ala Sachin.

WTF. He scored 100 from 70 odd balls. Reminded us like old Sachin crushing bowlers like non other.Its very easy to critisize but who will take his place. Many new players shines for some times and then goes away.Remember the saying, "People always throw stones at tree which is full of fruits".
