who will watch cricket when sachin will retire?
sachin should have played in this series, results would have been different.
Well, I think England will give Pakistan a thumping in the final test here in the UK. We had a typical over-confident batting collapse in the last test and let Pakistan back into the series but I can't see them winning the final test (starts tomorrow). Yousuff looked like he might bring some staying power to the batting and Wahab Riaz looks like a good young player to me, but Pakistan's batting has been brittle and you never quite feel confident that they are set at the crease.
I think India had better watch out. They are still number 1 I think in the ICC Test ratings, but I don't think they will stay there much longer. My own feeling is that the One Day Internationals have become too big in India. There is a huge amount of money now flooding through 20.20 and ODI. Test matches are the test of a cricketer and always will be. Too much one day cricket and the staying power goes out of the batting order, and the bowlers loose the art of subtlety and thinking an opponent out.
India has millions of potential cricket players - so there will always be future and scope for indian cricket players..(or any country's cricket player).. BUT, unfortunately there is also a lot of corruption involved, where players get selected, and hopefully, this will decline, and true players will come up.
