CHENNAI, Jan 6: Sachin Tendulkar didn't mince words when he categorically pointed out on Monday that he was not in favour of neutral venues in domestic
"There's nothing like playing in front of the home crowd. The players need that support from the fans to go that extra yard," Tendulkar said.
He feels that just as teams love playing at home, it's also important for teams to learn to play away. "The players also should learn how to play when people are shouting against them.
These are part and parcel of cricket and it keeps the interest going," Tendulkar said. The master blaster felt it all the more during the ongoing game because this was the first domestic match he is playing after the 2006-07 final against Bengal, when there were 10,000 people at the Wankhede Stadium.
