    Should BCCI retire Tendulkar's jersey No 10?

    IPL franchise Mumbai Indians [ Images ] have launched a campaign to retire Sachin Tendulkar's [ Images ] revered jersey No. 10 which was worn by him during his illustrious 23-year-long ODI career.

    Mumbai Indians fans club are running a campaign @MIpaltan 'Retire the Jersey No 10' on Twitter as a mark of respect to Tendulkar's ODI contribution.

    In soccer, Jersey No. 10 has normally been donned by the best player of a particular team. Someone like legendary Pele found that his No 10 jersey was later worn by Zico, Rivaldo, Kaka [ Images ] while Diego Maradona's [ Images ] No. 10 jersey has been inherited by none other than Lionel Messi [ Images ].

    "It's a message that the No. 10 belongs to the master only. When Sachin can do all this in ODIs for us, can't we pay him back in a way no Indian sportsman was ever honoured?
    Let's #RetireTheJerseyNo10," said their twitter handle.

    "Remember how we used to stay glued to the TV when Sachin used to bat in ODIs? Let's showcase our tribute to the legend.#RetireTheJerseyNo10.

    "Did you know that Sachin has 185 consecutive ODI appearances? Amazing fitness and consistency. Let's honour the legend. #RetireTheJerseyNo10. Once the jersey number is retired, no player from the team may use that number. Show ur respect for Sachin & tweet with #RetireTheJerseyNo10," said the posts on their account.

    Another post read, "No one else deserves to have No.10 on his back except "The Master" #RetireTheJerseyNo10. After the player retires, retiring his jersey is an honor a team bestows on a player."

    Taking a jersey out of circulation as a dedication to a team's legend is a tradition followed world over by the football clubs.
