LONDON Aug 10: He has “been there and done that” which is the reason why Sachin Tendulkar’s singular piece of advice for Virat Kohli is to worry less and follow his instincts.
For a significant part of his 24-year career, Tendulkar shouldered the burden of Indian batting and Kohli is performing the same role in present day.
Despite his classic 149 and 51 in the opening Test against England, India lost by 31 runs and there has been a lot of advice for the Indian captain. When asked about what would he tell Kohli, Tendulkar told ESPN Cricinfo: “I would say, just continue, he’s doing a fantastic job so just continue.
Don’t worry about what’s happening around you, keep your focus on what you want to achieve, and let your heart guide the way.”
The highest run-getter in Tests and ODIs wants Kohli to remain passionate about his goal. “Along the way, there will be plenty of things said and done, but eventually, if you are passionate about what you want in life, then the results will invariably follow.”
Kohli has conquered the final frontier as a batsman after his Edgbaston century but the maestro said that irrespective of the quantum of runs scored, a performer should never be satisfied.
