Sachin Tendulkar, one of the greatest ODI batsmen of all time, saw his career graph transform after he made the switch to opening the batting. And teammate VVS Laxman revealed recently how the Master Blaster never enjoyed his time in the middle order. Speaking on camera after an ODI between India and Australia last week, Laxman said, “Sachin Tendulkar was the best player the world had ever seen. But he never relished batting at number four. You want your best batsman to play maximum deliveries and set the game up and finish it for the team, especially against a quality attack.”

History has lessons for the current Indian captain Virat Kohli as well, Laxman said. Kohli too has experimented with in the middle order, an idea that hasn’t always worked. “One cannot afford to experiment against this Australian bowling... Kohli has to bat at No.3 and set the game and finish the innings,” Laxman said.
