In short, I think Sachin should pass on Test cricket until the next World Cup and focus entirely on ODIs. This will give VVS, Kaif, Raina, Venugopal Rao, or Badani a good shot at Test cricket.
With repeated failures, Sachin Tendulkar has once again sparked of speculation over the end of his cricketing days. The booing from his home crowd was easily the lowest point in his illustrious career. His glory days are clearly behind him. But the truth is that when he does come good he is still a world beater. The biggest and most valuable accomplishment he can and should focus on is the next World Cup. I think Sachin should stop playing Test cricket until after the next World Cup. Meanwhile, he should play only ODIs. His natural stroke play style is more suited to ODIs than Tests. Besides, he is struggling in Tests while performing quite creditable in ODIs. In ODIs his bowling has also come in very handy.
