Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the God of Cricket, holds almost every big record to his name during his career, but as a captain, he failed. Talking about his captaincy record he captained the Indian team in 73 ODIs and 25 Tests. India won only 23 and 4 matches respectively.
Former Indian fast bowler and coach Madan Lal gave his opinion on this failure of Sachin. Madan Lala says that Sachin used to pay more attention to his performance. Because of which it was difficult for him to take care of the team.
Talking to Sportskeeda, Madan Lal said,
“I won’t agree with you that he was not a great captain. But he was so involved in his own performance, he found it difficult to take care of the team. Because as a captain you not only need to take care of your performance but also get the best performance from the other 10 players. It is critical how you manage them.”
“I don’t believe that he was not a good captain. But at times, the captain is as good as his team. Captain can only give directions. When you perform well and give confidence to the captain, he also gives you chances without any hesitation. He gets involved with you in discussions and makes plans regarding the game.”, Madan Lal added.
Sachin Tendulkar had the quality of reading the game: Madan Lal
Madan further said that Sachin Tendulkar had the quality of reading the game and told the players where they were wrong.
Madan Lal said, “Sachin had a very good quality of reading the game and telling the players where they were going wrong or how to bowl. He was superb in all these things. But it happens sometimes, that you give so much attention to your game that your difficulties compound. It was not that he was not a good captain.”
