Indeed it was a Sachins time during the 18 months pointed by me in my post of Nov 2009. He made a world record of 200 runs in a One day international, won his dream World Cup, etc etc.
Now since this period is ending, the effects in the time ahead doesnt look so bright to me, but for time to turn negative it would take another 1 year or so.
Sachin will most likely due to a bit of subdued performance will announce his retirement from one day cricket post March 2012. Subsequently in another 2 years time he would also retire from Test cricket as well.
All in All, in all probability due to his current planetary combinations, we have seen the best of sachins cricket. Wish sachin produce memorable performances in the coming years as well.
