India batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has said that he was proud of Virat Kohli’s success and decision to open up on his battle against depression during India’s 2014 England tour.

Virat Kohli during a conversation with former England first-class cricketer Mark Nicholas talked in detail about his thought process when he was suffering from depression.

Tendulkar, in a tweet on Saturday, said youngsters these days were constantly judged on social media, adding that thousands talk about them but no to them. The batting genius, whose son Arjun Tendulkar was recently subject to unnecessary criticism after being picked by Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021 auction, suggested that youngsters should be guided and helped to flourish.

“Proud of your success & decision to share such personal experiences. These days youngsters are constantly judged on social media. Thousands speak about them but not to them. We need to be able to listen to them and help them flourish,” Sachin Tendulkar wrote on Twitter.
