Bangalore: Former India off-spinner Erapalli Prasanna on Monday, said Sachin Tendulkar's retirement from ODIs was a realistic decision which brought relief to the national selectors.

"Sachin's retirement from ODIs is a realistic decision as it has relieved the selectors from facing embarrassment of picking or dropping him from one-day games. If he was dropped, many would have questioned the selectors and included many would have questioned his capabilities," he told reporters here.

Sachin would have been a liability if he had failed and obviously he is a super cricketer, an icon but a human being whose reflexes are not the same as it was twenty years before, Prasanna said.
