It seems the time has come for the world s highest run-maker, Sachin Tendulkar to bid adieu to One-Day Internationals, after an online poll carried out by a daily newspaper revealed almost 57% of the voters wanting Tendulkar to retire from ODIs.

Sachin’s poor performance Down Under may have been the reason of such a shocking result.

Almost 47,000 people responded in the poll carried out by the newspaper s website on Tuesday, in which 19,127 voted against ‘Should Sachin retire from ODIs . While as many as 26, 813 voters were in favour of the motion.

The response came a day after former Indian cricketer Sourav Ganguly suggested that it is time for Tendulkar to reconsider his ODI career and concentrate on Test.

Ganguly said it was upto Sachin to think whether “he is still good enough to play in ODIs”.

“I think Sachin deserves to decide on his own if and when to leave international cricket or one-day cricket… I don’t think the selectors have got the right to ask him to go,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by Times of India.
