New Delhi: Former British PM David Cameron joked on Saturday that his country might want to kidnap cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar to train the England cricket team.

“Given the way the Test series (between the two countries) is going… we need to kidnap him (Tendulkar)… for training,” he said at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in Delhi. Mr Cameron was referring to the ongoing series where India have won the two Test matches played so far.

 

In Delhi as the British PM three years ago, Mr Cameron had described the ace Indian cricketer as “the greatest of all times”. “He is the greatest of all times. He’s an extraordinary cricketer... a fantastic player,” he had said while interacting with Indian businessmen. Noting that Mr Tendulkar inspired many, he had said, “If you look who has done more to inspire the young cricketers, he has done well in that.”
