Should Sachin Retire from ODIs?, Majority say YES
Bangalore: Opinions are never right or wrong, never constant and yes, the opinions are changing. “You can't contain Sachin's deeds in a statistical frame. He brings unstinted joy to the art of batting. Statistics will happen because cricket is about runs and wickets. But how can you evaluate Sachin's contributions by just counting the number of runs he has scored. To me, he best symbolizes the heights an individual can rise to dominate a team sport. Words can never capture the beauty of Sachin's cricket,” this is just one of many quotes from the cricketing legend Kapil Dev on Sachin Tendulkar who now feels that it’s time Sachin quit ODIs. "From what we have seen in the last three months, he should have announced his retirement before the World Cup. It's important to know that every cricketer has his time,” Kapil told 'Headlines Today'.
Surprisingly, it’s not just Kapil, but a large number of Indians seem to be of the opinion that the god of cricket should leave one-day cricket and it was quite evident in a Times of India online poll which concluded that 57 percent of respondent feels that Sachin should retire from ODIs. While 41 percent answered ‘No’ to the question 'Should Sachin retire from ODIs?', as many as 57 percent of respondents voted ‘Yes’.
TOI had nearly 47,000 people responding to its poll out of which 19,127 voted 'no' and 26,813 answered in favor of the question and around 817 (2 percent) people were undecided.
