Hyderabad: Coming out strongly in support of Sachin Tendulkar in his criticism of Greg Chappell, former India cricketer VVS Laxman on Tuesday said the dressing room atmosphere during the Aussie's two-year tenure as national team coach was the 'worst'.
Reacting to a series of startling allegations Sachin Tendulkar made in his autobiography - Playing it my Way, Laxman said he totally believed in what the iconic batsman had written in his book. (Tendulkar Claims Untrue, Says Chappell)
"I think 2006 was a very tough period for Indian cricket. The dressing room atmosphere was probably the worst. I remember in 2006 when I was added for the last one day game in South Africa and then for the Test series. I remember when I went to South Africa, it was probably the most negative dressing room I have come across. There was a lot of tension within the dressing room and it was unnecessary.
