Tendulkar averages a mere 22 from 5 innings having collected just 110 runs with a highest score of 76 in the first innings of the Eden Test.
Moreover, Tendulkar has not reached the three-figure mark since Jan 2011 which raises doubts over his abilities as age is catching up with the legendary cricketer.
Given the selectors' decision to drop seniors like Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan and the World Cup winning hero Yuvraj Singh, they would have certainly discussed about Tendulkar.
Ganguly also felt that Tendulkar wouldn't face a similar situation due to his achievements since selectors still have faith in the master blaster.
"Sachin desperately needs to get runs. He has achieved a lot. He is getting a long rope because of what he has achieved. He should know himself that how he needs to turn it around.
"As somebody watching it from outside Tendulkar not performing, I think if I was Tendulkar I would go. But it's upto him at the present moment. We want to see the great man going with a bat held high and not in terrible form.
