Dhoni is a very balanced captain, says Tendulkar
Despite the long wait, there are no regrets. Despite the long answers, there is no sense of boredom. Such is the charm of Sachin Tendulkar. The new brand ambassador of Jaypee Cements, Tendulkar spoke on the recent series win in New Zealand, the IPL and his Mumbai Indians side, among other issues.

On the win in New Zealand

The series win in New Zealand was fantastic. We broke the jinx by winning after a long wait of 41 years. This was something that was really satisfying.

On playing under MS Dhoni

He has been instrumental in elevating our performance. Our team’s success under his leadership has vindicated my faith in him. After Rahul Dravid had decided to step down, I had suggested his name for the captaincy and he has not let me down.

On the multiple captaincy idea

It is not a matter of multiple captains but a matter of multiple strategies. Having one captain does not mean he does everything himself. Other players also give him suggestions. I am not criticising Buchanan’s idea but we are not doing any such experiment with the Mumbai Indians. Let them (Kolkata Knight Riders) do whatever they want. At Mumbai Indians we will do what we want. It is always nice for a captain to have more options. That is what we generally do.

On Mumbai Indians

We are strong contenders. We have some great players and that gives us a good combination.

On preparing for the IPL

At Mumbai Indians we are a perfect blend of youth and experience. This year we will be focusing on making good use of this blend in our team and will try to win the tournament.

Ishant eyes Sachin’s scalp

Ishant Sharma, who plays for the Kolkata Knight Riders, has denied reports that he was in favour of John Buchanan’s multiple captaincy idea. “I have not said anything like that. It will be good for the team if we have only one captain. ”

Asked whose wicket he wants the most in the IPL, Ishant said: “There are many batsmen whose wicket I would like to take, but Sachin Tendulkar’s would be special. He is the legend of the game.”

Though the lanky bowler refused to pick his favourite team for the IPL, he said that winning would be crucial. “Maintaining the winning momentum will be important.”
