There was about enthusiasm around then and I generally stay faithful to these arrangements. This is on the grounds that that gave me an enthusiasm for cricket.

As a matter of fact not perform, just to hold up in the climate. I never watch cricket with any sort of assumption. I observe just to learn. At the point when I saw the Test series, I was so pleased," he said. "I was frustrated not to be there. I felt terrible not to be among the young men.

They have as much possibility winning the World Cup as Australia and India on account of the organization," he said. "As a host, we are truly glad to have the occasion.
