Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar believes that, Indian team will be able to fend for their World Cup title in 2015 despite of their poor performances currently. He seems positive about the prospects of winning the prestigious Cup and hence he wants the fans to cheer the team from now from the heart.
“Our side is an ingenious team with some exceptional good players. In good order right away, they are not working up to their story but I believe thing will not remain same.” Sachin said.
“Altogether the team needs is the support from the fans directly. When you keep on winning, you are confident and in good frame of mind. Only when you’re not pulling ahead and you know in that respect are a billion people behind you, and support you, your mentality change immediately and that is an hour of need.”
The World Cup tournament is knocking at the door and it will take place in Australia and New Zealand.
“I believe in the team fully.” He said this on an event.
Since December team India could not manage to see a single victory. The successive defeats of the team against South Africa, New Zealand and in the Asia Cup have shaken the floor slightly. But the batting legend was remembering how the squad fought back and secured the runner-up position in 2003 World Cup. “I remember in 2003, the New Zealand tour before reaching to the finals (of the World Cup) wasn’t a heavy one for us. We moved to South Africa and there were some side matches that we missed. And then we all took off remembering that we need to plan differently, act differently and it forged for us.”
“This is not something just about failures, this is the journey from the failure to success and making win a habit and that’s all you’re supposed to serve. If one adopts the path, the outcome will go down into his position. We observe the way and we will surely find the answer soon.”
Tendulkar always shares a right relation with the tiddlers in the squad later when he has become the senior one to them. “I constantly hold back telling them jokingly that you should wish me good morning sir. But we shared a really amazing relationship. They all treated me like their elder brother and it was vice versa relation. I enjoyed a lot with sharing the crease with them.”
“When I make my first spell, people had no expectation and they just went on enjoying my game, yet I did not know that someday I would reach 100 tons. It called for a while, obviously.”
This 40-year-old batting legend is enjoying his retirement now and he is obtaining more time to spend with his kin.
“Life is relaxed. I am finding more time to spend with my kin. In the last 24 years I did get (time with family) but it was (always) in the rear of my head that I had to move to Chennai or Bangalore or Kolkata to play a match and (then) you start educating yourself.
“Your brain is constantly preoccupied with how you are getting to bat or play in a particular series. Only today I don’t need to remember those things and I am having quality time with my kin. I have played cricket with my son but not with the season (cricket) ball,” he stated.
Tendulkar said he has no repent or unfulfilled dreams. “We had won the World Cup, won the Indian Premier League, won the Champions League (as Mumbai Indians team member), won the Ranji Trophy (as a Mumbai player in 2012-13 season) and gained the last Test series (against West Indies) as well. We became the world number one Test playing nation at that fourth dimension when we won the World Cup. That journey itself was so wonderful. We all figured out and then hard and pushed ourselves. Before I hit the sack, we were the number one Test playing nation.”
“So I don’t guess I have got any complaints from cricket or any regrets that I should have done this or should have caused that. I was able to do everything that I wanted. When I determined that this would be my last tournament, God was kind enough to grant me something special.”
