Sachin Tendulkar an inspiration, have learnt a lot from him: MS Dhoni

Bangalore: Dec 24, 2012
 
It’s not only the nuances of the game but also the quality to treat success and failure equally which the young India cricketers learnt from Sachin Tendulkar, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said today.

Tendulkar quit One-Day cricket Sunday but will continue to play Test matches.

“As youngsters we got to see how Sachin prepared himself for each and every game and at the same time he showed us how to be humble in life and digest success and defeat, which is one of the most difficult things to do. All the way he guided each one of us,” Dhoni told reporters.

Dhoni said it is disappointing that people won’t see the 50th century in the coloured clothing and 100 half-centuries as Tendulkar finished with 49 tons and 96 fifties.

“That’s something we’ll definitely miss. But I think he has been an inspiration, encouraging thousands and millions of people to take up the sport and made us learn a lot of things about cricket,” he said.

Dhoni said he learnt a lot about the game when he batted with him in the ODI format.

“He told us which bowlers we can target and what should be the target in next four-to-five overs and things like that.

This helped me learn a lot from him. Sachin’s contribution is immense and definitely India will miss him,” Dhoni said.

Replying to a question, Dhoni said Tendulkar is irreplaceable because of his unmatched batting skills and immense experience.
