Melbourne: Former Australia batsman Dean Jones has said that Sachin Tendulkar looks tired of One-Day cricket but no selector has the courage to tell him to retire from the 50-over format.
"Father time waits for no one, including cricketing greats Ricky Ponting and Sachin Tendulkar. Both players are looking tired of the 50-over format of the game and this week enough was enough for the Australian selectors, who dropped Ponting from the one-day squad," Jones said.
"India, on other hand, has no selector with the courage to tell Tendulkar his one-day career is over, no matter how badly he might be playing. People are worried their homes could be damaged if they are seen to have removed Tendulkar against his will. He will keep playing for as long as he likes and thus lies the problem for India," Jones wrote in his column for 'Sydney Morning Herald'.
