May 27, Sachin Tendulkar skips West Indies tour He has so far skipped 3 test tours completely because of injury - Sri Lanka fractured toe , Zimbabwe not yet fit after elbow surgery and West Indies not yet fit after shoulder tear.
So this would pretty much mean that his last act in a test match in the West Indies was being bowled by Pedro Collins for a brilliant 86, triggering a collapse that ended with West Indies winning the series His last act in all internationals in the West Indies was being bowled by Dilhara Fernando in the World Cup , for a blob.
Could this be his last World Cup innings? The ball pitched outside off stump, nipped back, Tendulkar lunged forward, the ball hit the inside edge of the bat and crashed into leg stump, huge huge wicket for Sri Lanka and India are fading away.
My worry isn't about him missing the series , but more about the why. If he wanted to spend time with the family, wouldn't it have made sense to skip the ODIs in West Indies and England, and make himself available for the tests?
After all, everyone, including him, bleats on about how test cricket is the ultimate form of the game. I don't buy the argument that he should have rested from a few IPL games.
His side hadn't yet qualified, and by screwing up a few games in a row at the end, they risked not making it to the top 4.
As a captain, it was his responsibility to ensure that Mumbai Indians qualified. Remember that they didn't automatically qualify until Deccan Chargers went down last Saturday.
