Tendulkar retires from ODIs
aman | December 23, 2012, 1:57 PM | 43 comments | 2 views


Sachin Tendulkar has retired from ODI cricket. Tendulkar finishes an illustrious career in the 50-over format, having played 463 ODIs, scored 18,426 runs and made 49 centuries, each of them a world record. His last ODI was against Pakistan in Dhaka during the Asia Cup, where he made a half-century in India’s victory.

“I have decided to retire from the One Day format of the game,” he said in a statement. “I feel blessed to have fulfilled the dream of being part of a World Cup winning Indian team. The preparatory process to defend the World Cup in 2015 should begin early and in right earnest. I would like to wish the team all the very best for the future. I am eternally grateful to all my well wishers for their unconditional support and love over the years.”

Tendulkar made his ODI debut on his first international tour, in 1989, against Pakistan in Karachi, where he got a duck. He scored his first half-century in his ninth ODI and made an immediate impact when promoted to open the batting in 1994, in an ODI against New Zealand in Auckland, where he smashed 82 in 49 balls. His first century took 79 ODIs to arrive but he kept piling them on with remarkable consistency. Some of the batting highlights in his ODI career include back-to-back hundreds against Australia in 1998 in a triangular tournament in Sharjah, finishing as the highest run-getter in the 2003 World Cup in South Africa, and becoming the first batsman to score a double-century in the ODI format, against South Africa in February 2010.

He was part of one of India’s greatest achievements over the last three decades, when they won the World Cup in 2011, beating Sri Lanka in the final on his home ground in Mumbai.

Tendulkar’s decision was announced on a day when the selection committee picked India’s limited-overs squad for the T20 and ODI series against Pakistan. Virender Sehwag was not named in the T20 squad, but is part of the ODI squad. Uttar Pradesh seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bengal seamer Shami Ahmed have also been named in the ODI squad.

    Bahul Chalu hai Sachin. To shift focus from Test form debacle he announced retirement from ODI.ODI to waise bhi nahi khelta tha. He should be dropped from Test. His dicision is ‘Too late, To little’

  10. Dj

    Lambu, I won’t complain to mods for that. But i just want to say one thing. Hats off to you to use such a language to a logical criticism and Salute to your Family who gave you such ‘Sanskar’. In a country where people criticise Lord Ram, Krishna or MK Gandhi you use such sweet words for questioning Sachin.

  11. ank_16n

    Sachin has not retired —–its RIP One Day Cricket for me..!! :(

    now ODI won’t attract me as it used too…..
    It doesn’t matter if India wins or loose……not anymore

    ______________
    and off the Topic

    DJ—–Now its High time Shah rukh Khan also Retires :) :) :) :) :) ;) :) :) :) :)

    1. jealous hater of srk

      ank der was no need bring srk here dnt create unneccessary fan wars

  12. ank_16n

    DJ —-who are u to Question his Family Sanskar ???
    can we judge ur sanskar from this Statement ??

    Though every one can’t be a DJ I suppose..!!

  13. lambu

    Lowdu din cheshti dj, comment Meine bam hone ke lie hi maara tha ab koi chutiya baat kare to coment ko to unsanskari hona padega boss.. Ab tum kohage ki Meine Kaunsa abuse kiya hai.. That comment which I feel is in bad taste is abuse ;)
    Orr ek baat Orr sunlo meri unsanskari gaali maadarchod…

    Orr haan abhi fatafat mods ko complain kardo varna Kahi tumhari unsanskari words ki class na lag jaye.. Mein nahi chahta ki aap jaise mahan sanskari purush koi nayi gaali pade.. List lambi hai..

  14. Dj

    Ank – He abused me just for criticising Sachin and i can’t even question his Sanskar. Even if whole world will someday pray Sachin. Even it turn god from demi god my opinion about him will not change. And I think it is my right.

    As far as SRK’s retirement is concern in the last 2 year NG per sabde zyada Maa-Behan ki uski hi hui hai. I haven’t protest. Sabki apni rai hoti hai.

    By the way if Sachin can turn Monkey into Maa Ki (Bhajji-Symonds incident) what more one can expect from his fans. It is enough for now rest tommorow.

    Lambu jitni chahe gaali de do.

    1. ank_16n

      DJ—did he brought ur family in the abuse…than why are u bringing his family in between??
      for me a man who abuses family and bring them in between is a big Culprit….

      and the man who can trust Symonds or Other Australian players on this monkey gate are the one who thinks
      Australia won Sydney match fairly..!!

      1. Huzefa

        ab jin logo ke pas bolne ko kuch nahi hota wo galia hi denge aur ank bhai agar aap ko ma behen ki gali di jaey to kia ye family involve nahi hoti to family kon laya bech me. i dont know ke aise ghatiya log bhi ng par hay jin ko ek dosre ki ma behen ki bhi tameez nahi hay aur kuch log bare fakhar se use defend bhi kar rahe hay.
        jaha tak sachin ki bat hay acha hua retire ho gaya warna against pak bechara aur sharminda hota but i miss ke ajmal nacha nahi paey ga is series me sachin ko. its better for india without sachin a guy who always played for himself.

        1. ank_16n

          Huzefa—DJ ne kaha ye sab tumhare family ke sanskar hai…
          aise family toh bech mein aa hi gayi na..

          aur jaha tak sachin ke retirement ki baat hai….aur sharmida hone ki baat hai…
          woh toh sachin ne 2003 and 2011 WC mein hi kar diya tha Ajmal aur Shoab aur Waqar ko ab isse jayada kya kahu…

          bas 2003 aur 2011 ke WC yaad aa jaata hai..! :)

          1. Huzefa

            dj ke ye bolne se pehle use ma ki gali di gai to kis ki family aai pehle itne bache na bano ke tumhe us gali ka matlab nahi pata.

        2. ank_16n

          aur ek baat kahunga jo aadmi apne liye kehlta hai wohi team ke score mein Contribute karta hai….
          jo player apne liye hi na score kare woh Team pe bhoj hota hai…

          So i m proud that Sachin played for himself so that India Jeeti gayi…..
          aur 2003 aur 2011 mein Sachin ne Run score karke India ko Final aur WC jitwaya in 2003 n 2011 respectively..!!

        3. aman

          abey Sachin ne tum logon ko wc mein kaise nachaaya hai woh bhool gaya hai to yeh dekh:

          sachin vs pak in wc matches: matches:5, runs: 313, avg: 62.6, result: INDIA WON ALL THE 5 WORLD CUP MATCHES

          nache to tum log honge jab jab Sachin ne tumhaari team ko sharmsaar kiya wc mein :D

        4. ank_16n

          Sachin Tendulkar has won most Man-of-the-Match award (62) in ODIs. Sanath Jayasuriya is second with 42 awards…..

          Need I say more….!!

        5. jealous hater of srk

          Sachin
          Pakistan team ko naam sunkar hi darr lagtha ha bechara

          1. Huzefa

            sachin never ever a player of big matches, 2003 me final tak pohnchaya tha to final me kia hua, india ka sirf wc me pak ke against record acha hay otherwise overall pak way ahead against india in tests and odi’s. yar ziada jalne ki zarorat nahi hay, facts r facts.

  15. rowdy rathor

    End of odi cricket for me.. Bas spurs mein..score wagarah dekh lunga bas ab… M crushed..my god has gone.. Hope he would hve played ths series nd annoucned ki he would retire after the series… Feelng pathetic…

  16. Aditya007

  17. jealous hater of srk

    @huzefa joke acha tha pehle puri pakistan ki team ki total carrier runs sachin kiya ODI runs se zyada karo bad mien baat karenga.

    1. Huzefa

      bhai aise runs tumhe hi mubarak ho jin ka koi hisa na ho jeet me, our overall record is much better than india in both tests and odis, we defeated england no. 1 at that time 3-0 and what they did to u in ur home ground and at there home ground LMAO, do i need to say more.

  18. suprabh

    He was and will be the greatest. No more ODI cricket for me, anymore.

  19. FS

    Its a Big Big Day for Cricket Lovers… For me it was and it has been like Sachin = Indian Cricket Team.

    PS: I had stopped watching cricket many years back and whenever i use to watch in between say a world cup match or one two matches in between, sachin has always scored good runs, played an important role and made sure that his presence on crease is the biggest motivational factor for Indian team and the Public at large.

  20. FS

    But its shameful for India not to have proper farewell to Sachin

  21. raj123

    I wish he would still play one more ODI as his farewell game and should get the standing ovation from everyone when he leaves the field for the last time. No matter what his current form is but he deserves the best of the best farewell.

  22. ank_16n

    hamare kya gande din aa gaye hai ki jo log Indian nhi hai…jinhone kabhi sachin ko Indian stadiums mein unki reception nhi dekhi….
    jin logo ke saamne Sachin ne WC aur 1989 mein abdul kader ki need uda di thi 4 sixer maar kar….
    Wasim akram aur Shoaib aktar ko sar ke upar se 6 maarna

    aur had to tabh ho jaati hai ki….
    jis country ke kisi player ne kabhi 10-11hazaar run nhi banaye woh ek 18.5 hazaar run banane wale ke baare mein bol rahe hai…
    hahahahaha…!!

    1. Huzefa

      lagta hay jalan khatam nahi ho rahi burnol bhijwadu kia, sachin 18000 runs lol, hamara sachin ke bagher hi india se bohat acha record hay in both tests and odis.
      we defeated england no. 1 at that time 3-0 and what they did to u in ur home ground and at there home ground , do i need to say more.

  23. Serenzy

    Sad Sad Moment! :(

    Have Written a lot about him Today on Different Blogs/FB/Whatsapp etc etc.

    Discussed him with Friends.. Relived those Amazing Memories Once Again!

    Nothing Much to Add More Really.

    It was Just a Matter of 3 ODI’s!

    SRT cud have got the 50th
    Hundred + Standing Ovations Farewell and The Cherry on Top – Thrashing Pakistan!!! :D

    This was Sooooooooo Not Meant to Happen Today!
    :(

  24. suprabh

    Here’s a relatively forgotten innings from Sachin. He came very close to hitting a double century in ODI in 1999 itself

    1. aman

      I remember seeing this match live…dravid, for a change, hit cairns for 2 sixes over his head!

      Sachin cud have scored a 200 here had dravid stayed with him…jadeja simply wasted too many balls :(

  25. jealous hater of srk

    indians even after sachin retirement wil b surely asking
    ‘Sachin ne kitna banaya’
    Sad day cricketing world
    God of cricket miss u!!

  26. lambu

    Dj, u r SRK fan and still continue to be… Chhi chhi… Kaha Gaye tumhare sanskaar.. Kya tumhare sanskaar yeh Nahi kehte aise vyaqti ka fan na bano Jo Khule aam chuma chaati karta hai.. Kaha the tumhare sanskaar jab tumhara fav ad jeans vaali ladkiyon ke saath gulchhane udda raha tha. Shame shame poppy shame.. Lagta hai tum sanskaar ghar chhod kar aaye the jab jthj theatre me dekhne gaye…
