: India's former cricket captain Kapil Dev feels Sachin Tendulkar should retire from One-Dayers, saying the champion batsman's time is finally up after over two decades at the international level.

“From what we have seen in the last three months, he should have quit soon after India won the World Cup. It's important to know that every cricketer has his time,” Kapil said.

“Having served the country for 22-23 years, there surely is no greater player than him. But, he should have announced his decision to retire from the shorter format soon after the World Cup,” he said.

Tendulkar, who is struggling for form in the ongoing ODI tri-series against Australia and Sri Lanka, is still awaiting his 100th international century — close to a year after he scored the 99th. — PTI
