I take each facet of the game in each format at its best. “T20 is more towards the countries that more necessarily be traditionalist in the game. It is a good spectator sport as well but then there is Test cricket where you get to test yourself against the values of the format — like facing a barrage of bouncers and getting past that, taking a few knocks and playing the swinging ball and seeing though a good spell to capitalise and get a hundred,” he explained. “As a bowler bowling a 10 over spell to go on for another two overs just to bring the team back into the game. I think all three facets has its place within the sport and I enjoy being a part of all three. The better cricketers in the world are able to adapt from T20 to 50 overs to Test cricket and it is a challenge that I set myself — to be able to play all three formats and be successful in all three,” he added. The West Indian said he might be at the receiving at some point of time with the evolving Twenty20 format. “I dont think it will happen but I know it will happen and it is a game of cricket. Some days you will be at the receiving end and some days you get along. You have to know what you can do at the best of your abilities, then the result takes care of itself. Sometimes the results are negative and at times positive, you just need to back your preparation and back your process,” he said. PTI TAP CM CMadvertisementlast_img read more
