New Delhi: Dec 10, 2012

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly criticised Sachin Tendulkar’s form and said that he would have retired if he were in the Little Master’s shoes.

Ganguly said that Tendulkar should turn his form around or hang up his boots.

“Sachin desperately needs to get runs,” Ganguly told news channel Headlines Today. “He has achieved a lot. He is getting a long rope because of what he has achieved. By now he should know how to turn it around.”

“As somebody watching it from outside, Tendulkar is not performing and I think if I were Tendulkar, I would go (retire).

“But it’s up to him at the present moment. We want to see the great man going with a bat held high and not in terrible form,” said Ganguly.
