Former India captain Kapil Dev feels that Sachin Tendulkar should not be pressurised to accept the Prime Minister's offer to join the Upper House.

“Whatever decision he takes, it must be his own. Others should not be telling him what do,” Kapil told MiD DAY yesterday.  Kapil, who had recently opined that Tendulkar must give up ODI cricket, said it was tough to read his former teammate’s mind.

“I don’t know what’s running through his mind right now. He wants to continue playing ODIs even while some, including myself, felt that he must give it up. So obviously what others say doesn’t matter in his case. He is the master of his own world and knows what’s best for him,” Kapil added.
