Everything you need to know about Sachin Tendulkar’s book ‘Playing It My Way’.
New Delhi: India’s batting legend and maestro Sachin Tendulkar autobiography, ‘Playing It My Way’ will be launched later today. In his autobiography of total 496 pages, the legend accused former India coach Greg Chappell, who creates misunderstanding between the players of the Indian cricket team. He regarded him as a “Ringmaster” who imposed his ideas on players.
Chappell was appointed coach of the Indian national cricket team for a two-year term until the World Cup 2007. While he was the coach of the Indian team, several Indian cricketers criticized his methods Sachin Tendulkar and Boria Majumdar are the author of this book.
When Tendulkar wanted to quit cricket:
Not long after the West Indies series was over, I (Sachin) confided in Anjali that I feared there was nothing more that I could do to stem the tide of defeats. I had given it everything and was not sure that I could give even 0.1 per cent more.
Tendulkar, Chappell and captaincy:
The batting maestro also disclosed that Chappell had made a “shocking” suggestion to him to take over India’s captaincy from Rahul Dravid months before the 2007 World Cup in West Indies.
“I was surprised to hear the coach not showing the slightest amount of respect for the captain, with cricket’s biggest tournament just months away”, Tendulkar writes
Dravid is not interested:
Dravid said he was never “aware of to any private conversation between two individuals” about Sachin Tendulkar’s revelation in his upcoming autobiography about Greg Chappell wanting to remove Dravid from captaincy before 2007 World Cup.
