Dhoni's best captain I have played for: Sachin

Mumbai: Team India dedicated its World Cup victory to Sachin Tendulkar. At a press conference, Mr. Tendulkar said:

We planned a lot of things. Nobody thought of lifting the trophy. Were thinking of the process. Were thinking of limiting them to smallest total possible.

In knockout stage, we peaked at the right time…clicked together at right time. We batted, fielded and bowled well. You see effort from all players. From senior most to junior most. Performance no one can guarantee but effort you can guarantee.

Dhoni’s been a fab captain. He stayed calm, very alert. Situational awareness has been his biggest strength. To know the likes and dislikes of every individual is very important. And he’s been at it throughout the tournament.

Personally, I would say Gary (Kirsten) should continue but he has family commitments. I respect his decision. We will miss him a lot. It’s been a pleasure to work with him. He’s probably worked harder than anyone else. He worked like a machine.

In 1987, I was a ball boy and Gavaskar took me to the dressing room and introduced me to other players. That was a big day but this was a bigger day. Had to pinch everyone to realize that it wasn’t a dream.
