New Delhi, Dec 4: Former British prime minister David Cameron on Saturday (Dec 3) jokingly said that England needs to kidnap India's cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar to improve his cricket team's performance in the ongoing Test series.
Speaking at Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Cameron in a lighter vein on the England cricket team's performance, said the way the series is going, his country needs to "kidnap" Sachin Tendulkar for training.
"I see the Little Master going to be here later on. Given the way the Test series (between the two countries) is going, we need to kidnap him (Tendulkar) for training," he said, referring to the series where India have won the two of the first three matches.
In the three of the 5-Test matches played so far, India have beaten England in second and third Test match to take an unassailable lead. The opening game between the two sides was drawn at Rajkot.
Virat Kohli and his men have so far dominated the series against Alastair Cook and company. Cook, however, has been the only English batsman who has troubled the Indian side.
Cook is in sublime form against India, barring him and Jonny Bairstow, upto a certain extent, no other England batsman has troubled Indian bowlers. That has been a major reason for the English side's poor performance.
The two sides will play the fourth Test match at Mumbai between December 8 and 12 at Mumbai.
