Will miss you Sachin!

Being the die hard fan of Sachin the first sentence that comes in our mind after his retirement from ODIs is that flick would be missed; the delicately placed shot off the pads, the trademark straight-drive with the manufacturer’s logo so visible; the punch to cover; it will all be missed.It was an amazing night of April 2, 2011 when Sachin lived his dream as India won the World Cup after 28 years at the Wankhede Stadium.We will miss every run scored by you and every ball that you have faced to serve the Nation.

I could feel the tears in my eyes twice first when India lifted the world cup after the gap of 28 years and second when Sachin called it a day from ODIs.

Yuvi considers him as GOD,there is no dearth of doubt that he is really god as Sachin not only inspired him in his lean phase but he won the world cup for this living legend.This remarks says much of it "In my heart and fellow indians! The pride of our country I salute to u for ur contribution to indian cricket @sachin_rt this has been retweeted 1501 times shows the love and affection that Sachin holds.  

Not a sudden decision:

He must be thinking for this day since long time,he must have talked with family and his friends.The decision to say good bye to one-day cricket was not sudden. For some time he had come to realise that the body was not listening to his brain. Fatigued legs and arms at the end of the day were clear indication to Sachin that he had to take the call. Test or one-day cricket, the choice was easy. He had valued Test cricket higher even though his recent form has meant a dent in his reputation.Sachin has conveyed a strong message to the world of cricket that Test cricket is still the best cricket.He would have retired from test why from ODIs.

Why not good bye on ground:

When you would have seen Sachin's retirement news either on TV or have heard it one question must have come through your mind why Sachin has not announced his retirement playing ODIs why living off the field.Sachin is great in test but greatest in ODIs and he will remain as same in the heart of millions of fans.I am still searching that what prompted this tough decision to quit ODIs?

Keen Observer:
Sachin was a great observer of the game either doing shadow practrices or seeing the wind blowing direction on the field are some important things that you must have witnessed during his palying game.He was a keen observer of the game and always thinks for the pride of country as he hanged his boot to prepare for 2015 world cup.

Experts say:

Sunil Gavaskar

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar says consistent criticism might have played a part in influencing Sachin Tendulkar's decision to quit one-day cricket and it would have been fantastic had he gone after completing 50 ODI centuries.

on such a sad day for india a man who gave more joy than anyone else says he has had enough of odi cricket.

Sachin you are legend and will remain as the legend either you play or not.The moments that you gave to the nation will always be in the bottom of the heart.One sentence that i will always say is we will miss you in number 10 blue jersey.

"Emotional moment to not see the person who inspired me to play for india not play one dayers anymore.hats off paaji.we all love you.respect"India batsman  via Twitter

Rahul Dravid

If you look at the statistics, his greatness becomes even more evident in the sheer volume of runs he has scored and the huge gap between him and the next batsman. To bat consistently at the top-order and the aggressive manner in which he did that is a staggering achievement."

I am Sachin........

Cricket's most prolific batsman stressed on his human side through the media-interaction. “I am not God, I am a cricketer and I am Sachin.”

This may be too personal but I don't feel very happy when cricket is criticized,I find my love for cricket assaulted from all directions.We lost against Bangladesh,there is no denying in the fact this is really an astonishing part of the game.

Even after that It's an honour and privilege to say that we are the habitats of a country from where the God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar hails.Sometimes we switch off our TV sets,we become angry and say will never watch cricket now but again we were drawn to this game that is the beauty of this game.

The reason of love:

Finally Sachin got his 100th ton.It is a great milestone and no one else is going to get there, but we don't watch a game merely for a milestone. We watch sport for the joy of seeing great performances not to bother that the defeat is only due to reaching the milestone.As a human being this is my question that would you love to see the matches only for milestones.The answer would be an obvious no.

How humble he is:

The statement made by little master just after reaching the milestone was never leave chasing your dreams,it may come true.The rough phase of 369 days have raised many questions,the cricket pandits were suggesting Sachin to hang his boots.The person who has served the Nation since last 22 years will not take minutes to come@ this decision to say good bye to cricket.

Rubbish talk shows:

Now there will be no talk or debate show on the news channels,there would be no TRP games.Sachin will play with an ease now a much relieved man must be feeling himself in comfort zone.Of course as he said “Yes, I have to be honest. I am human and I have emotions so I was frustrated. It does play on your mind,” Tendulkar told reporters at the post-match press conference.This shows the humbleness of this man.

Sachin Tendulkar admitted that the intervening journey between his 99th and 100th international hundreds, was one of the toughest he has faced in his career.

Perhaps the person who really loves cricket and this legend will have no question to ask now ,this is my humble request to all the cricket lovers to keep mum on the rubbish question of retirement,let him enjoy the game as longer as he wants.
