Yes, you tend to lose patience but the selection is not in your hands. All you can do is perform, perform and perform and that’s what I enjoy doing.
Cricket is such a sport that you get to learn something from someone every day.
Live in the moment; make the most of any opportunity that comes your way.
You could call it self-obsessed or self-respect, but the bottom line is, that I like everything about myself.
Every day, I want to be a winner. I want to train my best; I want to work my best.
No matter how talented you are or naturally gifted you are, there’s no substitute for hard work if you got to maintain standards.
At the start of the tournament, we said that’s the brand of cricket we want to play. We want to play aggressive, hard cricket, and with that, we need to show good intent.
You’re a captain when you’re fielding, not when you’re batting.
We want to encourage the young ones to learn and get some confidence in sports. It’s fun and keeps you active and moving.
Cricket is about a lot more than playing by the rules, Mistry. It’s a gentleman’s game. Don’t you ever forget that?
