Two decades of experience playing cricket has taught Sachin Tendulkar to not give in to pressure and play to personal strenths

Speaking to children as part of NDTV's Support My School Campaign on Sunday, Tendulkar said that the mental aspect of the game is as important as having the right technique. "Right from my school days, me and my brother decided that we are not going to open newspapers. I am not going to read what is written about me and I continue doing that," he said.

Advising young cricketers to think only about aspects of the game that will help them perform better, Tendulkar said that those who want to help will help in person. "I trust the judgment of a few people in my life and I speak to them before taking decisions," he said adding that buckling under pressure has a lot to do with bothering about the past or the future than playing in the present.
