New Delhi: The relationship between India’s former world champion captain Kapil Dev and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has not been very cordial. Kapil Dev had raised questions on the batting of Sachin Tendulkar, who scored runs and centuries in international cricket.
Kapil Dev told this deficiency in Sachin
Kapil Dev had said in an online live chat that Sachin Tendulkar did not know how to convert centuries into 200 and 300. Kapil Dev, in a conversation with WV Raman, former coach of the Indian women’s cricket team in the ‘Inside Out’ show on YouTube, said that I have not seen a talent like Sachin, but he was not a ruthless batsman.
Sachin did not know this work
Kapil Dev said, ‘Sachin knew how to score a century, but he did not know how to convert that century into double century and triple century.’ Kapil Dev said that a batsman like Sachin Tendulkar should have scored at least three triple centuries in his career. Kapil Dev said, ‘Sachin should have scored 10 double centuries, because a batsman like Sachin Tendulkar can hit fast bowlers and spinners outside the boundary in every over.’
Sachin was not a ruthless batsman
Kapil said, ‘Sachin used to start taking singles after scoring a century. Whereas he should have batted more aggressively after the century. Let us tell you that there was also a dispute between Sachin Tendulkar and Kapil Dev. In the year 2000, when Sachin Tendulkar was the captain, he had a dispute with the coach of Team India, Kapil Dev. Let us tell you that Sachin Tendulkar does not have a single triple century in Test cricket. Sachin Tendulkar’s best score in Test is 248 runs. Sachin has six double centuries in Test cricket to his name.
