    Tendulkar to step down as India's captain

    Sachin Tendulkar is to step down as India's captain following the team's disastrous performance under him on their recent tour of Australia.

    Tendulkar said on Sunday he would give up the job after the forthcoming two-test home series against South Africa.

    He is staying on until those tests are completed because the selectors do not have enough time to pick a new captain.

    India lost all three tests against Australia and won only one limited overs international out of eight in a triangular series with the home country and Pakistan.


    Well he could have saved his job by creating anti Pakistan hysteria similar to the one he managed to create before going to Toronto, and thereby avoiding getting thrashed by Pakistan. This time in Australia there was no way out and he is paying the penalty.
