Sachin Tendulkar could not do anything special in the 2011 World Cup.
Master Blaster did not see the final match being held in the field.
New Delhi. The Indian team won the ODI World Cup in the year 2011 under the captaincy of one of the great captains of the world, MS Dhoni. The final match took place between India and Sri Lanka (IND vs SL Final). In that exciting match, everyone’s eyes were focused on the match. But there were also two people who did not watch the match despite being at the Wankhede Stadium. These two people were none other than Team India veterans Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.
Sachin Tendulkar has done a lot for the country in a long career of 24 years. He has more than one record in his name. At the same time, Virender Sehwag is also no less. After which the eyes of the Indian fans were on the pair of Sachin-Viru in the World Cup final. But both the batsmen got out cheaply. Chasing 275 runs, Team India was looking in trouble. Sachin had told in an interview that he had not seen this match even though he was in the field.
Quarter final became the reason
The reason for Master Blaster not watching the match was the quarter-final match against Australia. According to Sachin, he neither watched the match himself nor did he allow Sehwag to watch it. He had told that we were taking massages in the quarter-final against Australia and had not seen the match. During that time Team India had performed brilliantly. Sachin adopted this formula in the final and it was successful. Due to the brilliant innings of Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir, Team India won the title.
