India one of the favourites to win the World Cup 2019 lost to New Zealand by 6 wickets on Saturday at Oval, London.
Where as Little Master Sachin Tendulkar says there is No Need to Panic,
“I feel they need to just settle down. One or two games, in tournament like World Cup, can go the other way. During warm-up games, India just need to assess the playing conditions thoroughly and make full use of it during the tournament. So, I will not panic at the moment,” Sachin Tendulkar said at a T20 Mumbai League press conference on Sunday.
“I will not judge the team after every game because it’s a tournament and such things do happen in cricket and the tournament hasn’t even started yet. In warm up games, teams are trying different batting and bowling combinations ahead of the World Cup,” he added.
India, England and Pakistan, which are tipped by many as favourites to lift the World Cup, have lost their respective opening warm-up matches. England lost to Australia while Pakistan suffered defeat against Afghanistan.
Reacting to Afghanistan’s performance in the warm-up match, Sachin said, “I have said this earlier as well, Afghanistan is one team that will surprise us in this World Cup because, I believe, they have one of the best spin-bowling attacks who can pick wickets in the middle overs.”
