`Tendulkar must be ruing blunder of not retiring after WC win`

Karachi, December 19:

Senior India batsman Sachin Tendulkar must be "ruing the blunder" of not calling it quits after the country`s World Cup triumph in 2011, a leading Pakistani daily said on Tuesday.

"Tendulkar, unfortunately, has not been able to choose his departing moment and must now be ruing the blunder of not having called it a day in March 2011 when India won the ICC Cricket World Cup," the `Dawn` wrote in an editorial.

Tendulkar managed a mere 112 runs at an average of just under 19 in the just-concluded Test series against England, prompting speculations about the 39-year-old`s retirement from international cricket.

"Rated as perhaps the greatest post-war batsman, Tendulkar has been a picture of misery in the four-match series, struggling to put together a decent score against an opposition which by no means can be dubbed as menacing for a player of his class and stature," the daily added.

The daily also observed that Tendulkar is not the first Asian batsman to go through such unpleasant experience.

"A number of great players before him, including compatriots Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev, our own Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram and Zaheer Abbas, and several others have been forced out of cricket after repeated failures or have simply faded into history after refusing to quit the game at the right moment," it further wrote.
