Sachin never became a ruthless batsman: Kapil Dev

Jul 29, 2020 19:58 IST

Sachin Tendulkar may be regarded as one of the best batsmen cricket has ever seen but former India captain Kapil Dev feels that the Master Blaster never became a ruthless batsman. During an interview to ESPNcricinfo, he said that Sachin had so much talent, more than anyone during his era. The 1983 World Cup winning skipper though said that Tendulkar knew how to score hundreds but didn't know how to convert those hundreds into double-hundreds and triple-hundreds. Sachin had the talent to make at least five triple-centuries and another 10 double-hundreds because he could hit fast bowlers and spinners for a six or a four every over. Kapil Dev added that he had once even advised Tendulkar to be like Virender Sehwag, who upon reaching a ton would aim for at least one boundary an over if not two.
