Mumbai, Nov 5: Former India captain Rahul Dravid has said he won't be commenting on each and everything batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has written in his autobiography, adding that it would be unfair to comment on any issue without reading the book.

Tendulkar, in his soon-to-be-released autobiography 'Playing It My Way', has written that Chappell visited his home just before the 2007 World Cup and suggested about making him the Indian captain at Dravid's expense.

'Not commenting on what Sachin says'

"I have made some other comments yesterday on what I have information about, which is that it was a private conversation between two people. So, it is hard for me to make a comment on that and actually say what happened or what didn't happen. It is up for the two individuals to figure out what happened. I don't really want to make a comment on that sort of conversation or whether it happened or whether it didn't happen or what happened.

"So, the rest of the book, look I would like to read it. There is a lot of the other stuff. Without reading it is quite unfair to make a comment and after I have read it, if I do feel like I want to say something then I will," he told reporters on the sidelines of a promotional event yesterday.

Tendulkar had also suggested to the Board to send the team without the coach to the World Cup in 2007 and asked if he agreed with the view in hindsight, the former Karnataka batsman said he didn't have to comment on everything the batting icon says.

"In what context Sachin has mentioned, what has he said, it is hard to make a comment on something that you are hearing from the media and getting snippets of. So, wait to see what the context is and what this thing was. I am not going to comment on every single thing that Sachin Tendulkar says. I don't need to be able to be commenting on everything that Tendulkar says," he said.
