2 WC finals failures is not enough to indict on its own. And I don't have the time to sift through 500 ODIs to figure out if he's a choker who scores barge-loads of irrelevant runs or not.

That said when I did do some research - arbitrary as all studies are - a while back and when I'm done with the Lara and Kallis portions, I'll post the findings. It might actually support Tendulkar's case.
