'I want to continue from where I left'

Kuala Lumpur: The West Indies cricket team will open their campaign in the Kuala Lumpur tri-series on Tuesday against world champions Australia, before taking on India on Thursday. CNN-IBN's Meha Bhardwaj spoke to the Caribbean vice-captain Ramnaresh Sarwan before their first practice session. Meha Bhardwaj: Ram, first of all, looking forward to the series? Ramnaresh Sarwan: Yes of course. We’ve had a bit of a lay-off. We last played against India in the home One-Day series. We played pretty well then, so we’re looking forward to the series. Meha Bhardwaj: So what are your plans for this series, especially after the way you performed against India? How are you looking at this series, probably as a build-up to the Champions Trophy or maybe the World Cup? Ramnaresh Sarwan: Of course, we want to get some sort of confidence going into the Champions Trophy because we have to qualify (for the next rounds). So we need that sort of form, so that we are peaking when we get to India. I think it is a wonderful opportunity for us. Meha Bhardwaj: What are the personal goals that you are looking at for yourself for this series? Ramnaresh Sarwan: I just want to continue from where I left off against India in the Caribbean. Obviously we did pretty well, so I just want to continue from there, but it’s also behind me now. It’s a whole new start, we have had a month and a half of rest, so it’s important for me to get a good start and stay positive. Meha Bhardwaj: How are you looking at the pitch, the ground, the conditions and the preparations here? Ramnaresh Sarwan: I think it’s a wonderful outfield but just like you I’m not too sure about the pitch as yet. We had an opportunity to practise in the practice tournament, it was pretty okay. So we just have to see what happens, regardless of how the situation is and the condition is. We just have to play positive and hope for results. Meha Bhardwaj: Thank you for talking to us Ram. Ramnaresh Sarwan: It’s alright.
