Sachin Tendulkar mentoring Mumbai Indians finished last in the IPL 2022 points table where 10 teams participated for the glorious trophy.

On ignoring the star performers, Sachin said that he chosen his playing 11 purely based on the players’ performance in the IPL 2022 season.

Owing to Virat and Rohit poor performance Sachin Tendulkar left out their name in his team.

“It’s got nothing to do with players’ reputation or their past performances. It is purely based on their performances this season and what they have been able to achieve this season” said Tendulkar in a video in his Youtube channel.

Sachin Tendulkar named Hardik Pandya as his captain after he led Gujarat Titans to lift the trophy in their maiden appearance. Sachin also picked IPL 2022 Orange cap winner Jos Buttler and IPL 2022 Purple cap winner Yuzvendra Chahal in his team.

Tendulkar chose Pandya as the captain of his team. “Hardik was the standout captain this season. He was clear in his mind, proactive. I always say that don’t regret, celebrate. If you are able to celebrate, it means the captain is outsmarting the opposition and that is what Hardik did,” he said.

Buttler, Tendulkar said, was an obvious choice. “What a season he has had. Fabulous. I can’t see any player more dangerous than him in this IPL. There are a couple but when Buttler gets going, not many can catch up.”

Sachin named 4 players from IPL 2022 champions team – Gujarat Titans in his playing 11.
