In the autobiography of Sachin Tendulkar, Playing it My Way, the master blaster has unfolded plenty of unknown things. He also shared his opinions about various cricketers and also about how he admired them.

On that note, the former World Cup winning captain of the Indian team, said on Wednesday that he respects Sachin’s opinion about him as a coach of the Cricket team and at the sametime he refused it to be drawn into a controversy.

In his autobiography, Sachin Tendulkar said that he was kind of “Disappointed” with Kapil Dev as the coach of the Indian Cricket team.

Kapil Dev was the Coach of the Indian team for a span of one year, since September, 1999 to September, 2000. In that span, India lost their first fome series in 13 long years. During that span, India won only one test series and were defeated in 5 test series and secured just one victory in 8 tests. In One Day Internationals too, India had a rough patch during that period. And, India won only 9 of their 25 matches when Kapil Dev was the coach of the team.

Kapil Dev stated that it is entirely Sachin’s opinion and he respects it fully. According to Kapil Dev, everybody is entitled to one’s opinion and he respects it fully.

He also added by saying that if someone has to sensationalize it, the person is free to do that and he does not see anything to say or he does not feel like adding anything to it.

Kapil Dev also spoke about his willingness to accept the invitation of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to tour Australia.

Modi invited Kapil Dev and also the former Indian Captain, Sunil Gavaskar to be part of his tour to Australia on Monday.

Kapil Dev said that he is very happy that the Prime Minister has invited him and he will gladly accept the offer. That is what he can do least. He also said that he will be always ready to help the Government or BCCI if asked to.

He also said that he will be happy to do service for the need of the nation. No matter if it is not in cricket only.
