    Sachin Tendulkar happy about quality of Indian domestic cricket, unhappy about facilities and travel

    Sachin Tendulkar, who turned 32 a few days back, was in Delhi to play in a benefit match for former Indian player Gursharan Singh.

    Some Indian cricket followers may be aware of Gursharan Singh being a fine fielder. He played one test and one one-dayer, both in New Zealand, as part of Raj Singh Dungarpur's "Team of the 90s", led by Azharuddin. I dont think its fair to blame Dungarpur for that. After all, he probably meant "Team of 1990" and was most certainly misquoted, given that quite a few of the newcomers who played on that tour didn't last beyond 1990. Atul Wassan, Gursharan Singh, M Venkatramana (who shares a birthday with Tendulkar), VB Chandrasekhar, etc. That match in with Gursharan Singh debuted is more famous for Ian Smith's blitzkrieg century. Smith came in with the score reading 85/6. When he was out, New Zealand had made a match-winning total of 391.

    Ok enough of digressing from what Tendulkar actually spoke about after the benefit match. He talked about the changes to his batting, his role in the team, injuries, changes to domestic cricket, etc. What he spoke about is more or less identical to what he said six months ago.
