Sachin Tendulkar, an integral part of the Indian squad in all forms of cricket till recently, on Tuesday celebrated his 34th birthday with knowledge that his glittering career is at the crossroads.
It turned out to be a quiet birthday for the champion batsman who spent most of the day indoor with his family and close friends.
Tendulkar has been ‘rested’ along with another former captain Sourav Ganguly for next month’s one-day series in Bangladesh by the selection committee when the team was announced last week following the World Cup debacle, a decision which has triggered various interpretations in the media.
The sands of time seem to be catching up with Tendulkar with a question mark hanging over his international career which has been nothing short of spectacular so far.
Age coupled with a spate of injuries to back, ankle and elbow, seems to have diminished all-time great player’s powers as attacking batsman feared by bowlers all around the world.
