Tendulkar, named vice-captain for the ODI series, has also scored more ODI hundreds and fifties than Marauder from Matara, 40 and 74 against Jayasuriya’s 23 and 61.

Tendulkar to be deputy of Dravid against West Indies

Poor form has ended sporting careers or at least forced a relegation to the bench. In Sachin Tendulkar’s case, it has led to a promotion.
