Virat Kohli alone cannot win World Cup for us: Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar is arguably the prime example that one player can’t always win you all the matches and tournaments.

Despite breaking pretty much broken all batting records in his illustrious career, Sachin Tendulkar still had to wait till 2011 to get his hands on the coveted World Cup trophy.

India seems to be in a similar sort of situation where they have one batsman — Virat Kohli — going great guns and on the cusp of multiple batting records while others are not at the same level.

But Sachin Tendulkar has cautioned Team India, saying that “one individual can’t win a tournament. The Indian batting legend also emphasised on his point, saying players should step up during the crucial moments at the World Cup 2019.

“I think you will always have a couple of individuals stepping up every game but without team support, you can’t do much. Just because of one individual, you can’t win a tournament. No way. Unless others chip in at every crucial stage. If that doesn’t happen, there will be a disappointment,” Tendulkar said.

Tendulkar is hardly worried that India doesn’t have a settled No. 4, saying the slot can be kept flexible as per requirement and match situation.
