Pakistan’s bowling lacks consistency: Sachin Tendulkar

Furthermore, Sachin Tendullar said that skipper MS Dhoni will be the key batsman in the Indian line-up at 2015 ICC World Cup. Sachin also mentioned that Dhoni’s ability to remain calm in pressure situations will come in handy in this mega-event of cricket. He also added that the Indian team can’t depend upon a single individual to deliver rather they have to perform as a team. Everyone’s contribution is necessary in this regard.

The 2011 world cup winner said,

“I think MS Dhoni is the guy. It’s because he has the experience of competing at this level of cricket for close to 10 years and he is composed and calm. You know, even on the biggest of the stages he is calm and composed and that is what you surely expect from a leader.”

Sachin also mentioned about his former teammate that Dhoni has a certain quality as a captain of the Indian side, but it is also equally important for a captain to be in a good form too. Sachin seeked support for the entire Indian team.

When someone asked him about India’s opening encounter against Pakistan, he said that while Pakistan’s bowling line-up does possess a great threat, they lack the consistency to deliver on a regular basis.

He said,

“I remember when we played in 2003 against Pakistan at South Africa, the bowling attack has Shoaib Akhter, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Abdul Razzak, Shahid Afridi, and leading attack in the world I would say. But, with time the team also has changed a lot. “

Mentioning the changes he added,

“The Pakistan team don’t have an attack of that caliber, but that does not mean newer lot cannot deliver. They still have the ability to deliver, but you all know they lack that substance. I think Mohammad Irfan is one bowler who can consistently bowl well in New Zealand and Australia’s condition. Wahab Riaz can bowl, but I feel they might lack consistency.”
