Why Sachin Tendulkar hated computers in dressing room

19 February 2014

Mumbai:  Sachin Tendulkar said on Thursday,
he was not too comfortable with the idea of having a computer in the dressing room but came to
accept the device after realizing how important an aid it was to plan and strategize better.

I had already played for India for 12-13 years. This was in 2002-03, when computer was brought to our dressing room.
We were told that computer is going to store all the data and you will have access to whatever you want to see.
I asked what is the computer doing in the dressing room?
he recollected at the Aviva Life Insurance event.

Computer is not going to bat for me, it is not going to bowl for Zaheer Khan or Harbhajan (Singh).
But, over a period of time I realised that the data stored was accessible within seconds.
If I wanted to see how I batted in Australia in 1999, in year 2007, it was available in five seconds.
