Sachin Tendulkar hailed Team India for their victorious Asia Cup 2018 campaign in UAE and said that it was a complete team effort.
“I did not see all the matches. Whenever I see, I feel happy for the way we (Indian team) are performing”, Tendulkar told reporters after flagging off the Mumbai Half Maraton at the Bandra Kurla Complex.
“I will give the credit to the whole team. Individuals come and perform well, some players play the series well, some players cannot perform as desired but eventually I’ll say that I feel happy after seeing the team effort,” Tendulkar said.
Speaking about India’s triumph in the Asia Cup under skipper Rohit Sharma, Tendulkar said: “I would like to congratulate everyone. Eventually what you want is a good team effort and that the team has performed well,” said Tendulkar.
