India didn't lose because of Tendulkar. They had 33 runs to defend from last 3 overs, and they still lost. We needed 39 from 39 against Pakistan, but we lost. Pakistan had Gul, India had Praveen Kumar/Irfan Pathn. Hafeez played a similar innings for Pakistan, but nobody would've blamed him if Pakistan lost that match. That's the problem of being Tendulkar.
