On Wednesday, when the batting legend was quizzed on the one factor that stood out during India's maiden 2-1 Test series triumph in Australia, he replied: "It's hard to pick one moment, but Pujara has been really outstanding". The number of statements made on Pujara, which ideally weren't in his favour, kind of undermined (diminished) his contribution.
India's series win has come at a time when Pakistan have lost badly in South Africa and the entire cricket set-up has been under pressure because of the lacklustre performances in recent times.
IPL has made the transition from domestic to worldwide cricket easier for the young Indian players, feels the icon.

Tendulkar reckoned that the ability to bowl hostile spells with both the new ball and the old one is what goes in favour of the current lot of India's pacers.

The bowlers have (also) done exceedingly well. But it's also not just to do with the things I have mentioned; the guys are also talented. When you start sharing the dressing room with the leading global cricketers in the world and you spend time together for two months. earlier, when we were playing. if I had to play Glenn McGrath, I saw him after every four years in Australia. The triumph ended a 71-year wait for India. I'm relaxed and not really thinking about who's standing there, " Zampa said. But I knew that India had won the World Cup (in 1983) and that's where my journey started.
Tendulkar said he would like to see more "difficult and challenging pitches" rolled out in domestic tournaments. Hope it continues to get better and better, the facilities for the players. "But that doesn't mean that the bowlers should just roll their arm over to get their wickets", he stated.
