More than one performance I would say it’s the memory that matters more. In India, people remember the memories more. It’s Very fortunate to be standing here, retiring after 18 years, retiring in blue clothes in your home ground, I have no regrets. The crowd has been a great support. I am always happy whether I am retired or not.
This is For Today and we will Meet on Next T20I Between these two Teams on this Saturday.
