Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar urged Indian skipper Virat Kohli to maintain his focus after his brilliant batting performance in the opening Test against England at Edgbaston cricket ground in Birmingham.

Sachin Tendulkar advised Virat Kohli follow his heart in order to achieve what he wants to.

However, Virat Kohli's men couldn't handle the heat of England's paceman result of this India lost the match by 31 runs.

"I would say, just continue, he's doing a fantastic job so just continue," Tendulkar was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

"Don't worry about what's happening around you, keep your focus on what you want to achieve, and let your heart guide the way.

Indian batting icon Tendulkar added that "Along the way there will be plenty of things said and done, but eventually, if you are passionate about what you want in life, then the results will invariably follow."

Sachin Tendulkar cited that "You want more runs, and that is the case with Virat. However many runs he scores, it will never be enough for him. The downfall starts when you are satisfied.

"It's nice to be happy, but never be satisfied when you are a batsman. Bowlers can only get ten wickets, but batters can go on and go, so don't be satisfied, just be happy."
