Look, I was the captain of India for five years. I was one of the stars, a popular face in India.
We Indians react under pressure.
Twenty20 is must for cricket. Without T20, cricket cannot survive.
When I was captain, John Wright was making all the decisions and I followed like an obedient student.
In your journey to the tag of winning-at-all-costs you can still behave, you can still do the right things by not crossing the line. Lot of champions have done it. Look at Rahul Dravid, Steve Waugh.
I didn't play an ODI game for 15 months when I was probably the best performer in one-day cricket. It happens in life. The best in the world are at times shown the door.
There's one must in life: whatever job you do, wherever you are, whatever age you have, how much experience you have, you have to keep performing at the top level otherwise someone else will take your place.
A strong India is very, very important for world cricket.
Look at Virat Kohli, he is such a fantastic role model. India is a fortunate country. Every generation produces players who all of us cherish.
You have just got to live life and let others live.
We are all human beings. We are not machines that everything you put in comes out perfect.
I really liked the biopic of Milkha Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
