New Delhi: Sad at not seeing Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting perform well in the Indian Premier League (IPL), South African cricketing legend Graeme Pollock said it is always a hard decision to know when to call it a day.

While Mumbai Indians skipper Ponting has already retired from international cricket, Tendulkar quit One-Day Internationals (ODI) in December last year. Tendulkar's woeful form in Tests carried on to the IPL as well. In five matches, Tendulkar, who will turn 41 Wednesday, has managed scores of 23, 0, 1, 44, 1. Ponting has also been a big failure and had figures of 28, 6, 0, 14 and 4.
