Former great Aussie coach & Former KKR coach 'John Buchanan' feels that the little master though a highly impressive Test & ODI player is not a fit to play T20.

"Tendulkar has been lauded, and rightly so, as one of the very top batsmen in the history of cricket...But is he an effective T20 player at this stage of his career?" questioned the former Australia coach in his latest book 'The Future of Cricket: The Rise of Twenty20'.

"In the position he plays -- as an opener of No. 3 - the T20 game requires not only the finesse and skills he has, but also the power and domination, an ability to take the bowlers on while being creative. You have to be inventive and fearless. And I don't see those qualities as part of Sachin's make-up at this stage of his career. Sachin Tendulkar is still a great player but not in this arena of T20," said Buchanan.

I personally feel that John is completely wrong just like his tactics with KKR. What do you think?

    here is an advice- not just for you john, but for all australians- sachin is not just a player, he is a learning institution in himself; if cricketers would just go watch his batting footages, coaching from the likes of you will be obviated. And you should better learn about the stature of the person you talking about.

    I think John either should have slept from hungover or should have been in other world while sachin smashed the bowlers of the team he coached (KKR) in IPL2 :D

    I seriously admire this guys guts of planning such b**l s**t ideas and trying to get away with it :)

    Hello... mr jhon, what is ur feeling about sachin tendulkar,and indian cricket. every time ur commenting the indian cricket, its not good for u man.
    Dont comment sachin he is perfect in all formate first see ur life with out comments.
    finally one thing u should have to know, if the ten-10 will come, sachin will play that also. that is the power of sachin.sachin is the king of batting.

    John Buchanan must 100% confident
    that hez not fit for cricket itself

    no need to explain Sachin cricket and greatness.If someone like John Buchanan said we Indians and Sachin fans,we are just ignoring it.And Buchanan himself proved that he is not fit for not only for T20 and cricket.
