Thankyou so much for having me BCCI & Star Sports. Always love coming to India & being involved with cricket as I love the passion of the fans here.

Disappointed not be part of it, but will be watching from LA, NZ & Melbourne over the next few weeks. Good luck to both teams & may the best team win !!! See you tmrw Los Angeles ! ✔👍
