"I have my own style"


Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who led India to the memorable triumph against Australia in Sharjah, said it was unfair to the great batsmen of the past to compare his batting with them.

``One should not compare me with anyone. I have my own shots and the way I go out to play. I have my own game and the way to score runs,'' Tendulkar said in an interview to a private TV channel.

The little champion, however, said he felt good when a sports channel displayed the array of shots played by Australian legend Sir Don Bradman and himself on a single screen. ``It was a nice feeling to see Bradman and myself on a single screen,'' he said.

Commenting on the teams' prospect for the future, Tendulkar said the present combination was well balanced and with more youngsters in the team inspiration and morale was high.

Saying that youngsters such as Ajit Agarkar, Hrishikesh Kanitkar, Rahul Sanghvi, Harvinder Singh and Harbhajan Singh performed well in the tournament and had bright future, Tendulkar said "all we need to do is to support them through ups and downs of their career. There is going to be a lean patch when they would need encouragement.''

He admitted that there were captaincy pressures saying ``when you are not captain of the team, you have lot of time to think about your own batting.'' Scoring as many runs to win more matches for the country was the ultimate thing in life of a cricketer, Tendulkar said and added that it was his only goal.
