Nothing Novel In Buchanan Multiple Captaincy Theory: Tendulkar
Master-blaster batsman Sachin Tendulkar did not denounce Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) coach John Buchanan's multiple-captain theory in univocal terms but categorically ruled out that there would be such experiment with the Mumbai team.
Speaking on this with the media persons, Tendulkar said, "Let them (KKR) do whatever they want. At Mumbai Indians, we will do what we want."
It can be recalled that the whole issue of multiple capitancy started when KKR coach Buchanan unveiled his plan for several skippers, thus forcing out Ganguly from lone captaincy. The former Aussie coach named Brendon McCullum, Chris Gayle, Brad Hodge and Sourav Ganguly as the four skippers for the team for IPL Season 2.
As a result, former players like Sunil gavaskar and Dilip Vengsarkar criticized the former Aussie coach.
Tendulkar also added that senior players always chip in with suggestions.
"It is not a matter of multiple captaincy but a matter of multiple strategists. Having one captain does not mean he himself does all the jobs. Other players also give him suggestions," said Tendulkar.
However, the great right handed batsman desisted from any direct criticism of Buchanan.
"It is just an opinion and there always is two sides of a coin and you see both, that is fine," added the Mumbai Indians skipper.
