Tendulkar's words are going to be treated like gold by youngsters, says former cricketer
The Indian Little Master, Sachin Tendulkar will mentor 11 promising youngsters as part of the initiative launched by Adidas. Eleven players, who are going to benefit from the initiative are Unmukt Chand, Parveez Rasool, Vijay Zol, Manan Vohra, Manpreet Juneja, Rush Kalaria, Chirag Khurana, Akshdeep Nath, Vikas Mishra, Sarfaraz Khan and Baba Aparajith. These players have done decently well to be picked up for such an initiative.
Karsan Ghavri, former Indian cricketer said, ''All these 11 players are talented youngsters and when Sachin talks to them, his tips can't go wrong.'' Being one of the most respected cricketer to have ever played the game, youngsters long to hear from him. ''Sachin Tendulkar's words are going to be treated like gold by these youngsters. It will inspire them and also make them confident in their approach,'' added Ghavri.
All the mentioned players have strong potential in them, who hope to represent India
for a long time in the near future. Sachin Tendulkar could play an important role in their career and help them become great cricketers. Amongst the 11 players, Unmukt Chand is considered to be one of the best young batsman in India. If he gives enough attention to the tips that would be provided by Tendulkar, it could help him in his career. Even, Australian great Ian Chappell rates Chand highly.
''With Tendulkar's experience, he could talk to them about playing in different conditions around the world, importance of building an inning, handling pressure etc,'' said another former Indian cricketer, Lalchand Rajput. But, it is the youngsters, who need to make the most of Tendulkar's presence. They need to implement his tips during the game as well.
Tendulkar has always been there for youngsters, guiding them and help them become better. A number of players presently playing for India consider Sachin to be their idol. Whenever anyone of them walk upto Sachin, he would offer them useful tips. These 11 youngsters should consider themselves lucky.
If they have any problems in their technique or anything related to the game, they should feel free to discuss about it with Tendulkar, who has seen it all in the international arena for over two decades. Lalchand Rajput said, ''The youngsters need to talk to him, ask for his opinion and maximise the opportunity.''
There can be no better person in world cricket other than Sachin Tendulkar to mentor these youngsters.
