New Delhi: India's greatest batsman Sachin Tendulkar was practising at the MCA Academy at BKC, Mumbai, as news came in about Australian player Ricky Ponting announcing his retirement from international cricket, with Michael Clarke finding it difficult to hold back his tears at a press conference.
Sachin was practising with Team India players Zaheer Khand and Ajinkya Rahane. Sachin played against four pacers - Zaheer, Paras Mhambre, Jagdish Chavan and a local player.
Only one left arm spinner was there at the nets, and while playing against the spinner it was being noticed that Sachin's arm opened and he was being bowled out.
The 64,000-dollar question is: Should Sachin follow Ponting's footsteps and retire?
