Hyderabad: With reports emerging that Sachin Tendulkar may not play against Deccan Chargers in the IPL on Sunday in view of the worsening condition of Sathya Sai Baba, DC skipper Kumar Sangakkara on Saturday said one should respect the iconic batsman's decision.
"If Sachin does not play tomorrow because he is worried about Sathya Sai Baba, his decision should be respected. You should always show a support towards personal decisions," Sangakkara said.
"There are many followers of Sai Baba in Sri Lanka too and they are also anxious. So I think it's a personal decision and should be respected," he added.
