Ganguly is undoubtedly one of the best batsman Indian cricket has seen. But, of late, he has been very lazy in the field. There might be many a reasons for that... but cricket demands a lot of energy in the field.
So, it is a right time for the great player and a greatest captain to call it a day.

Why not ??:|

Yeah, Sachin didn't perform well in the series. But he was definitely amongst the better odi players this season and performed well in the latter parts of tri-series in Austrailia and even before.Even when he was in a bad form, he maintained a decent avg(late 30's to early 40's).Pls dont tell me, his nomination for best odi player is based on politics alone. It was really sad that Saurav Ganguly was sacked when he seemed to be in pretty good form even taking a few valuable wickets.

Just to inform all of you ..
Average of Sachin in ODI's And Tests this year(2008 ) is above 44.
He won the Australia's for us ... By being the highest run getter. :|
One Sri Lanka series cant be the deciding factor.

The irony is not once did Mendis took Ganguly's wicket but Tendulkar(kuch kar nahiin pata phir bhi team mein rehta hai), Dravid or VVS were bamboozled by him, yet the axe fell on Sourav :(
There has to be a common yardstick for everybody and especially for that has-been Tendulkar :p
Yeh sab politics ke kaaran main Cricket nahiin dekhta hoon :(

Read this Tendulkar named in World ODI XI http://cricket.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/3469834.cms

Had he not been playing well in recent past, he must not have been there.

good news dada is back on training session for Ranji series.Also new selection committe will be announced before australian series .So i believe there will be hope for return.
@dreamsalive:You mentioned dada is useless to the team and he shud retire.I say we are not Gods to decide player's fate.Above all he is the best captain around and probably next best to kapil dev for taking the team into finals of 2003 world cup unlike shitty glamorous t20 world cup.

Tendulkar is hasbeen .... HAHAHAHAH
He was among the top5 run getter in ODI's in 07 ..
And in 08 he averages more than 44 in both the formats .

And BTW ... Cricket is a funny game.Had it not been that way ... Monopoly would have been retained.
Even the best do faulter ... Which makes the game even more lively and interesting.

Hope U get it.:rolleyes:
