In an interview, Sachin Tendulkar spoke about the shoving and pushing on the field and said that in such crunch situations players should be able to control their emotions. Sachin Tendulkar said that aggression is good but it should be in your game and not vocal or physical. He said:

One can only make an effort to teach individuals, but then a lot depends on the character of an individual. In a crunch moment, one should be able to control certain things and not forget that the whole world is looking up to you. They are following certain things,” 

He added:

“So, I think those are the moments where controlled aggression helps. One needs to be aggressive but being vocal and saying foul things doesn’t mean that you are aggressive. Aggression should be in your game, the way you bat or bowl-that aggression which helps the team and not goes against it,”
