Previous India skipper Kapil Dev said the unbelievable Sachin Tendulkar ought to have score all the more twofold hundreds and triple hundreds in his profession.

Sachin Tendulkar pretty much sits on head of each global batting record. Be that as it may, with regards to scoring twofold hundreds in Test cricket, Sachin doesn't highlight in the main 10. Like Marvan Atapattu, Virender Sehwag, Javed Miandad, Younis Khan, and Ricky Ponting, Sachin too has six twofold hundreds in Test cricket however he is at No. 12 in the rundown which is driven by Don Bradman (12 twofold tons), since he has taken the most number of matches (200) to do as such. Featuring a similar point, India's 1983 World Cup-winning commander and unbelievable all-rounder Kapil Dev said Sachin Tendulkar realized how to score hundreds of years yet he couldn't exactly ace the specialty of transforming them into twofold and triple hundreds.

"Sachin had so much ability that I hadn't seen it in anybody. He realized how to score hundreds however he never turned into a heartless batsman. Sachin had everything in cricket. He realized how to score hundreds yet didn't have the foggiest idea how to change over those hundreds into 200s &300s," Kapil Dev told previous India cricketer and current ladies' group lead trainer WV Raman in a meeting.

Kapil said the sort of ability Sachin had, he ought to have scored at any rate five triple hundreds of years – Tendulkar has none – and 10 all the more twofold tons.

"Sachin should've made five triple hundreds of years and another 10 twofold tons since he could hit quick bowlers and spinners for a limit each finished," Kapil included.

Incredibly, Sachin who has 51 Test hundreds – the most – took 10 years to score his first twofold hundred. It came in 1999 against New Zealand in Hyderabad. Truth be told, out of Tendulkar's 51 hundreds, just 20 have ended up being scores of over 150. Sachin, be that as it may, was the main batsman to score an ODI twofold hundred against South Africa in 2010.

Clarifying the explanations for Sachin's less number of twofold tons, Kapil, who has not just played a ton of cricket with Tendulkar yet additionally trained him in worldwide cricket, stated, it has a great deal to do with his Mumbai roots.

"Since he was from Mumbai they had an outlook of when you score a hundred make a line and start from zero once more. Also, that is the place I said no, you are such a merciless cricketer, bowlers should fear you. Sachin's ability was second to none. However, after a scoring a hundred he used to take singles and didn't get savage," Kapil included.
