“India’s one-day batting is as good as I have ever seen it. It’s sensational, the top six, seven they have at the moment. So it is just a question of some of these young guys being able to fill in,” he added.
However, Dravid is still not sure of the young players’ ability to step into the breach that Tendulkar will leave. “It is not going to be easy to fill those shoes. I don’t think we should expect people to come straight away and become the next Tendulkar. The creation of Tendulkar took a long time as well. So you have got to give people time.”
