Sachin Tendulkar and Kapil Dev are the two greatest legend of the cricketing world. Now taking a dig at Sachin is injustice to his career. Kapil Dev during a function in Dubai stated that Sachin Tendulkar never did justice to his talent. Tendulkar “did not know how to make double hundreds, triple hundreds and 400 though he had the ability to scale such peaks” and was “stuck in the Bombay school of cricket”, the famed all-rounder said.
Well we are sure that Kapil has full regards for Sachin Tendulkar and viceversa but this incident could have been avoided or put forward in a better manner.
Admission Times respects the cricketing giants and for educational purpose have stated the individual records of KapilDev and Sachin Tendulkar.
