Sachin Tendulakar Players have a lot to learn from Kumble

Posted Date :   13 July 2016 04:45:41 PM  

Sachin Tendulkar, the legendary Indian batsman, believes new head coach Anil Kumble would teach the team to win 'crunch moments' in games. Tendulkar was part of the Board of Control for Cricket in India's cricket committee alongside Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman that was instrumental in Kumble's appointment to the top job. 
 
"It's about being a tough character and being able to stand on your feet in tough moments. That's what I feel Anil will teach them," Tendulkar said on Tuesday (July 12) at Lord's. "There are crunch moments in any match, so approaching those moments is important. He will be out there to win each and every moment."
 
Terming Kumble a match-winner, Tendulkar urged the Indian players to learn as much as possible from the veteran'. "My experience with Anil has been fantastic," Tendulkar said. "He has been a match-winner, and the guys have got a lot to learn from him. Anil is ready to share everything he has learnt from this wonderful sport. He played for close to 20 years, so there is plenty to share. I'll just tell the players to grasp as much information from Anil as possible, and enjoy the game above everything else."
 
"The wickets need to change; they need to be more helpful for bowlers," Tendulkar said. "In T20s, the greatest of bowlers are being reverse-swept. Three-hundred is no longer competitive in ODIs. 
 
Meanwhile, the 43-year-old also echoed David Warner's comments on flat pitches being a bigger threat to the sport than the increasing size of the bats. Tendulkar called for bowler-conduive pitches in order to make the game competitive.
 
"So there should be at least one format where bowlers have a better chance of executing their skills and making it more interesting for spectators. It's difficult for someone to sit for five days, so you have to look at changing surfaces. I don't think it's got much to do with bats, but I'm sure people on the panel will be able to look into it. That's what David Warner has spoken about too.
