Any World Cup of cricket in Australia, whatever the format, must have a conversation with the guy whose batting prowess made both Australia and Australians fall in love with him. Like many, Sachin Tendulkar is anticipating the T20 World Cup.
Tendulkar said that India should easily qualify for the semifinals due to the team’s balance. Suryakumar Yadav, who is now Team India’s X-factor and a sought target for opponents, would need to have a strong World Cup if that is to happen. Tendulkar has witnessed the growth and success of Surya for Mumbai Indians and India.
The capacity and talent to play extraordinary innings were always present in the 32-year-old, according to Tendulkar, who also adds that encouragement and appreciation are the best cures. Success and admiration have also transformed him as a person. He plays so boldly now since he knows he need not worry about being selected. It’s simply that he is doing it more frequently now.
Tendulkar speaks on Rohit’s captaincy
Captain Rohit Sharma is another cricketer he has observed up close who plays for India, Mumbai, and MI. His performance has been inconsistent recently, and even his heated on-field demeanor following a misfield, lost catch, or a terrible over has spawned a meme-fest on social media and spurred discussions about whether the demands of serving as captain are having an effect on him.
However, Tendulkar does not want to extrapolate too much from that. “These things happen when someone is working hard to help the team win and things don’t go as planned. Some people are quiet, while others react differently. If someone is peaceful, it doesn’t mean they’re not trying hard, and if they’re also active and angry, it doesn’t indicate they’re disturbed.”
T20 World Cup Semifinalists prediction by Tendulkar
He listed his semi-finalists before concluding the discussion. “South Africa will be the dark horse in our group since the conditions will be similar to what they are used to in October and November. In the other group, I anticipate that Australia and England will advance, with New Zealand being the dark horse.”
