Sachin’s tips and U-19 stars
Calcutta/Mumbai: A confident under-19 skipper Unmukt Chand Friday said that interaction with Sachin Tendulkar will help the team in their title defence Down Under.
“We interacted with Sachin… He tried to give a lot of positive feedback and shared with us some of the experiences he had in the past 20 years. He spoke on World Cup and on the pressure. He told us to be ourselves on field and not worry about other things. So it was very good for us,” Chand said.
Meanwhile, Mohsin Sayyad and Manan Vohra will not be travelling to Australia with the India U-19 team for the World Cup. Ravi Kant Singh and Hanuma Vihari Gade are the replacements.
