"I think the kind of form and the fitness he is in, if he decides to comeback it will be wonderful. He has adapted himself marvellously in the shorter format of the game. When he decided not to play in the Twenty20, he must have been in a different state of mind. But today look at the the way he is playing. If he decides to play, he should be welcomed to the side." former Test cricketer Abbas Ali Baig told IANS.
Legendary Sunil Gavaskar also said Tendulkar "should make himself available for World Twenty20."
Navjot Singh Sidhu said Tendulkar still has the hunger for the runs irrespective of the format. "I think the selectors will have to consider his current form. He has made a strong case the way he is batting in IPL.
"Sachin is a cricketer who can adapt to any situation and score at any level. He is like a little boy whose enthusiasm for cricket refuses to die." Former Test captain Bishen Singh Bedi felt the decision should be best left to Tendulkar.
“The way Tendulkar has been playing I believe he must play for India in the World Twenty20. He is playing very well in the IPL. There is no reason why he cannot perform for India,” Kapil said during an interactive session at the India International Sports Summit on Wednesday.
