New Delhi: Even though Vinod Kambli strongly refuted the charge of making any statements against batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar, the channel visuals showed on Friday proved that he had indeed made the remarks.
There were media reports that Kambli had accused his childhood friend Sachin Tendulkar for not helping him enough during his bad days in Indian cricket.
A short video footage of the programme "Sach Ka Samna" telecasted on 'Times Now' channel showed a pensive Kambli admitting that Tendulkar had not helped him enough.
Replying to a question on the show Kambli revealed that Tendulkar could have done more to save him from his self-destructive habits.
Sachin and Kambli – crack in friendship?
Kambli's U-turn: says sorry to Sachin
"If I had got a little more motivation when I was self-destructing myself, my career could have been prolonged", the visual shows Kambli as saying.
Vinod had earlier denied having accused Tendulkar of not helping him enough and said such reports had left him and his family shattered.
Kambli who shared a world record with Tendulkar in school cricket had that he had never spoken anything against Tendulkar in the reality TV show and termed the report as "completely baseless".
"I have never said anything against Tendulkar. He is my friend for 26 years, people should know that I will never say such a thing against my friend. He is currently in London and I will meet him soon," Kambli had told reporters in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Kambli also told a TV channel today that he had spoken to Tendulkar and the two had "laughed off" the matter.
