We learnt lesson of humility from Tendulkar: Dhoni

It's not only the nuances of the game but also the quality to treat success and failure equally which the young India cricketers learnt from Sachin Tendulkar, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said on Monday.

Tendulkar quit One-day cricket yesterday but will continue to play Test matches. ‘As youngsters we got to see how Sachin prepared himself for each and every game and at the same time he showed us how to be humble in life and digest success and defeat, which is one of the most difficult things to do. All the way he guided each one of us,’ Dhoni told reporters. Dhoni said it is disappointing that people won't see the 50th century in the coloured clothing and 100 half-centuries as Tendulkar finished with 49 tons 96 fifties.  ‘That's something we'll definitely miss. But I think he has been an inspiration, encouraging thousands and millions of people to take up the sport and made us learn a lot.’
