Jamaica. Yesterday in the first session, Pujara made his first run on the last minute of the 1st hour- This moment impressed Sunil Gavaskar so much that he decided to start his second innings in cricket.
Just one run of Pujara set a biggest record in the history of the cricket that a cricketer decided to withdraw form retirement after more than 25 years. Mr. Gavaskar gave exclusive interview to FN in Jamaica, West Indies.
Pagal Patrakar (PP): First of all sir, Congratulations and all the best. Sunil Gavaskr (SG): Thanks
PP: What is the reason behind this decision sir? SG: Look I retired because Srikant was my opening partner and It sometimes became reason for my misery as In what balls he made 50 runs, I could make only 1.
PP: Ok. Then sir why only now you changed your mind? SG: I decided this back in 2000, when I watched Sadagopalan Ramesh batting but soon Virendra Sehwagh replaced him. It killed my desire.
PP: Sir, it seems that you talked with Afridi or Yunus Khan in last week, did you? SG: No no. I am not just 21 year old!
PP: What chances do you see for your place in team? SG: 100%. Look KL Rahul and Pujara are making headlines. That means my chance is 100%.
