    Don't speculate on Tendulkar's career: Dhoni

    New Delhi : Batting great Sachin Tendulkar left the cricketing world guessing by not announcing his much speculated retirement after India whitewashed Australia 4-0 to lift the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the Ferozeshah Kotla here Sunday.

    Even skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni asked the media not to speculate on Tendulkar, who retired from One-Day Internationals (ODI) in December.

    “Do not speculate on Sachin’s career. In 2005, you (media) also said the same thing but that never happened,” said Dhoni in the post-match press conference.

    The cricketing world was abuzz with rumours that the fourth Test here would be last time Tendulkar will bat in a Test match on Indian soil or ever. Over the weekend, the Ferozeshah Kotla witnessed a healthy turnout.

    Whenever he came out to bat or went back to the pavilion, the crowd gave Tendulkar a standing ovation.

    Given that India will not play another Test match in India for more than a year, speculation is rife about when Tendulkar will call it a day as by the time he plays his Test on home soil, the legend will already be 41.

    Of late, he has also struggled with his form, being among the least run scorers amongst the Indian batsmen with his last Test century coming in January 2011 against South Africa.

      I think Sachin play cricket because he enjoy playing it. He top batsman in the world are output of the passion. As long as he has passion he continue to play. However slectors have option to drop him if he not meeting expectations.

      Please retire Sachin. It is time. We know your talent and your hunger but it is time. Please go before people start to question your talents. You will always be the greatest. Everyone knows that. Please go with grace.
