'Show more responsibilty and balance'

 Tendulkar said he was disappointed with India’s failed title defence but at the same time felt the fans back home needed to show more “responsibility and balance” in their reaction.

“I feel there is very high emotions among the people when they react. But do these reactions help us to play better? not really. These actually put more pressure on the players. We have got to be mature and be with the team,” Tendulkar said.

“No one can change the past but always can learn from it and do better in future. I think, We should react to the success and failures with lot of responsibility and balance. If we do that it becomes easier for everyone.”

Tendulkar was here, along with his family, to cheer the Indian team and said he could understand their feeling but could not fault the team, for it had tried its best. “I am also disappointed along with the nation. I am sure that the guys planned and tried well, but things sometimes don’t click. Disappointment will be there. I am sure the team will put the best step forward to get the rhythm again. If everyone back home stands behind them, the team may become a formidable one.”
