KOLKATA: World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev feels comments of Indian cricketers that they want to win the Cup for Sachin Tendulkar is just media hype. Kapil hoped it is the batting maestro who would win the World Cup for India.
"’We want to win for Sachin. We want to win for Sachin.’ It’s the media which is saying again and again. We all want to win. Of course Sachin wants to win. But if you keep on asking everybody if Sachin’s dream will come true what will they say? Everybody’s dream is same," said Kapil while addressing an event, Power Play, which was also attended by former cricket legends Sourav Ganguly, Vivian Richards and Steve Waugh.
Kapil felt depending on one individual will have an adverse effect on the team.
"I as a cricketer would not like to depend on one person. At the end of the day it’s a team game and the team has to win together," Kapil said.
"When you start depending on one player and if anything goes wrong with him your team chokes. I think he has to do it for us. He has to perform for us so that we can cheer for him," he added.(IANS)
