For once Sachin, be selfish

Sachin should get selfish here, real selfish.

This is probably his last world cup. If he has to see the team through, he has to take it upon himself to do everything he possibly can. Don’t play rash shots at the beginning of the batting power play. Don’t take that unnecessary run. Protect your wicket like anything. Don’t expect the guys who come after you to do any good to the score. Just play till the end.

In 1983 it was Kapil Dev who took it upon himself to see India through against Zimbabwe. Not that he did not believe in other players to perform or not to perform. He just didn’t expect anybody to. He wanted to win the world cup, that’s what he did. Now it’s Sachin’s turn. The team has come this far. Take it from here. I wish this to be possible for every player in the Indian team, but it doesn’t look like that currently. For once Sachin, be selfish. It’s a lot to ask, may be. But then if not you God, who else?

      hmm..agreed. But in this WC it is even more important for him to be so. And that too, extremely. 🙂
