Obviously with the World Twenty20 coming up soon, as a bowler I would've loved to pick up some things about him, but he doesn't give too much away. The big deciding factor would be if he is going to be in form or not.
Yes, we've got a team song which we sing after every win to encourage team spirit. It has some nice words. Fleming and George Bailey co-wrote it, and the tune is based on the Smokie single "Living next door to Alice".
Nah, you can only hear it in the Chennai Super Kings' change room.
Come December, I will be a father of a boy.
Probably the f-word. The only difference being the sound.
I didn't really say anything much. Obviously it was a big disappointment for him, but on the other hand it was happiness for me. He was supportive of me on my debut and I was supportive of him since he was dropped. We never really had any sort of competition growing up, as we are different sort of players: he is more of a strike bowler, while I'm an allrounder.
You're gonna have to ask him. Yes, it looks weird on TV: his head is down while he hits over point for six. He is pretty unique, but I'm sure he watches the ball.
I'd make the lunch interval in four-day games about two hours long, so we can have an afternoon siesta.
I would like to get rid of the free hit for a no-ball. It is already a batsman's game and the bowlers are having a hard time all the time as it is.
If it is blatant, yes! In the end it evens itself out, because many times you get a bad decision and you can't do anything about it.
Shaun Pollock. He is my idol both for his bowling and batting, and one day I would like to have his record.
Actually I would like to be a bit taller to get more bounce. Six-three is a good height to have.
The captain says "Back yourself, back yourself," after every delivery, but sometimes as you charge in and just before the last step, you see the batsman move and you get distracted. That is the most common thing.
"Keep it simple."
