As for the night travel plans by MCA, Tendulkar was strictly against it as not only it deprives the players of getting proper sleep, it also hampers the concentration level, along with their fitness level.

He was also against teams traveling in buses, while he also called for a second team, for the side, to participate in all age-group tournaments.
