‘2006-07 was possibly lowest for Team India’

| | Mumbai

Sachin Tendulkar on Tuesday said Indian cricket had possibly touched its lowest ebb leading upto the 2007 World Cup before recovering to move in a new direction.

"I think 2006-07 we were possibly (at) lowest (phase)," the legendary batsman recalled at a programme here. "We didn't qualify for the Super 8 stage of the 2007 World Cup. But we got back from there and started fresh thinking, we started moving in a new direction."

It was the phase during which Greg Chappell was at the helm as India coach, perhaps the most turbulent tenure in Indian cricket marred by his public fallout with senior Indian players.

"We had to make a lot of changes. And once we had planned what we had to achieve as a team, we were committed to it and the results followed. We had to change a lot of things. Whether they were right or wrong we didn't know. The change did not happen overnight. We had to wait for results. In fact it took me 21 years of my career to lift that beautiful World Cup trophy," he added.

Tendulkar was part of the Indian squad which lifted the 2011 World Cup under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
