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.
I drop knowledge so heavy it leaves the world unbalanced, exterminating the spiritual force of all that challenge, I'm the lyrical apocalypse that crumbles the granite, replacing you as the dominant species on the planet.
