Will have to kidnap Sachin Tendulkar, jokes former UK Prime Minister Cameron
The England team is in the midst of a crisis in the ongoing tour. Not only are they trailing 2-0 in the 5 match series, they are also ravaged by a number of injury concerns. Primary among them is the injury to young opener Haseeb Hameed, who has looked one of the most assured English batsmen on this tour.
Apart from the this, the rest of the English batting too is under a lot of pressure after having failed against the Indian spinners. Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom David Cameron has jokingly suggested a novel idea to arrest this slide.
“Given the way the Test series (between the two countries) is going… we need to kidnap him ( Sachin Tendulkar)… for training,” Cameron jokingly said at the ongoing Hindustan Times Leadership Summit.
