Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who was at the peak of his cricketing powers at the time, recalls how the team’s initiation to technology was a gradual process. Tendulkar uploaded a video to LinkedIn recently, where he spoke of the advantages of technology on his — and the team’s — game.
“I still remember, how in 2002, our dressing room had a laptop and cameras and all sorts of things. I wondered, what is this computer going to do? A computer can’t help me bat. It can’t help Anil Kumble or Javagal Srinath bowl,” he recalled.
However, technology did help them plan better, he said. “It has come to a point that if I go to the analyst in the team right now and ask him about the year 2002, on the tour of South Africa, what did I do in the fourth ball of the 23rd over, within seconds, the answer will pop up. So, our planning became precise,” he said. The times, they were a-changin.
