Cricket: Tendulkar axed

Click to follow
Sachin Tendulkar was sacked as captain of India yesterday because the selectors felt he could not cope with the pressures of playing and leading the side.

Under Tendulkar, India won three of their 17 Tests and 17 of 54 one-dayers, but as one of the world's leading batsmen he is certain to retain his place in the team under his successor, Mohammad Azharuddin.
