Can you expect one of the Oldest Test playing nation and one time world Champion to show the lowest standards in Game? before Monday's game the answer would have been No, but on Monday, Sri Lankan cricket team has proved that they can play game at the lowest level.
Virender Sehwag was batting on 99 and India needed 5 runs to win the match in Dambula. A ball from Randiv went for four bye runs thus leveling the scores.The last ball was bowled a no ball before Sehwag hit it for a Six. But unfortunately that six was not counted because in the game of cricket extra runs are counted first. All this was done to stop Sehwag to complete his Century.
Although the Sri lankan cricket board controlled the damaged by Saying apology for the unfortunate events. This should be taken seriously not only by Cricket Srilanka but by all the cricket boards across the boards to prevent such unfortunate events and to raise the spirit of the game.

This questions has been in mind of every person who has any connection with cricket.Is this the time for Grandpa, this is what most of the team mates call Sachin Tendulkar) to retire.
I have dilemma in mind and can't have my point of view for the same. Considering this year and last few years of performance from bating maestro, i think its time for him to day goodbye to the game.
He is one of the best and greatest batsman the game have ever produced. and there is phase in every one's life when he has to decide to call it off.
I think the problem with Master Blaster is that , he has given enough to the game and can't think anything beyond the game. He is so much in love with the game that he might even don't care about his performance.He just want to stay in the game because he loves the game so much.
But i think this is not good for Indian Cricket, considering the dream of every one of us to win the world cup again. He is occupying one very vital position in the team, which incase would have been used to nurture any raw talent. And i know that he might end up in having a poor show in the world cup 2011. I am not saying that this would be intentional, but at that time his body will be two more years older and the performance would go down.
One of my biggest fear is that i don't want this genius retirement/exit from indian team in a way other great batsmen have departed. It should be proud moment for every one of us.
Tendulkar has to understand this, if his expulsion from the team is forced one,it will not hurt only him, but also millions and millions of fans around the world.
I want him to be remembered for a longer time with same intensity as he has been remembered during his cricketing years.
I don't know what other thinks, but this is my thoughts.
