When I was 15, I started playing first class cricket and always dreamt of being a Test cricketer, wanted to do something for the country, married in 1995, have 2 kids it’s been great.
When there is time to think about cricket, I think but when there is time to be with family, I try to do justice to that aspect of my life as well.
It doesn’t always happen according to the way you have planned things out but I feel if you have covered most of the aspects, it does help out there in the middle.
And that is the reason why this victory is great, because different players have made contributions to the win.
Isn’t cricket supposed to be a team sport? I feel people should decide first whether cricket is a team game or an individual sport.
I never played with a runner in my entire life, even in schools, because only I know where the ball is going and how hard, when I hit the ball, something my runner will never know about.
It has been very good here, but the World Cup game was different. It had a different significance to it.
My point of view is that when I am playing cricket I cannot think that this game is less or more important.
I feel when somebody has been playing cricket for a long time, he creates a separate identity for himself.
I hate losing and cricket being my first love, once I enter the ground it’s a different zone altogether and that hunger for winning is always there.
Before coming here I had a minor back problem and I thought whenever I play Pakistan I get a back problem.
