Kapil Dev said he would have advised Sachin Tendulkar to play like Virender Sehwag.
Do not get me wrong, but I think Sachin did not do justice to his talent. I always thought he could have done much more than what he did, Dev was quoted as saying by the Khaleej Times.
He (Sachin) got stuck with Bombay cricket. He did not apply himself to the ruthless international cricket. I think he should have spent more time with Vivian Richards than some of the Bombay guys who played just neat and straight cricket.
Sachin was a much better cricketer but somewhere along the line he just knew how to score hundreds. He did not know how to make it a double hundred, or a triple or even 400s, added the 1983 World Cup winning India captain.
The great all-rounder, under whose captaincy India won its maiden World Cup in 1983, said he would have advised Tendulkar to play like Virender Sehwag.
