Don't worry about about WC warm-up game loss: Sachin

Sachin Tendulkar is in no mood to press the "panic" button after India's loss to New Zealand in their first World Cup warm-up game, saying Virat Kohli's men should utilise the practice matches to learn more about the conditions ahead of the main tournament.

Pre-tournament favourites India put up a dismal show in their opening practice game, losing by six wickets to New Zealand in London on Saturday. Electing to bat, India made a below-par 179, which the Kiwis chased down in 37.1 overs.

"I will not judge the team after each and every game. It's a tournament and things like these will happen. The main tournament has not even started yet," Tendulkar said.
