The play of the famous politician and Congress MP from Kerala Shashi Tharoor is not hidden from anyone. A frequent social media leader, Tharoor has questioned the leadership potential of master-blaster Sachin Tendulkar. According to Tharoor, the team did not have a better option than Sachin in the mid-90s, but his captaincy never impressed me. In an interview given to a sports website, the Congress leader says, ‘When he was not the captain, he used to look very active. Standing in the slip and running here and there. Used to run to the captain. He used to give advice, encourage the players, but after Sachin got the captaincy, my attitude towards him completely changed.
Sachin Tendulkar has always been a role model for cricketers, there is hardly any record of this game which he did not do in his name. Sachin achieved everything a batsman could dream of, but as a captain, he could not succeed. Tendulkar, who took over the reins of Team India in 1996, won just 23 matches out of 73 ODIs. Defeated 43 matches. His win percentage is just 35.07. In the test, this figure gets worse. Won only four out of 25 matches. Serious defeat in nine matches.
