A synopsis of Gilly wants Hyderabad right on top
How do you look at Twenty20 cricket?
I must admit that I was a reluctant starter with it, uncertain whether it will hold a place in the cricket society but am well and truly convinced having experienced it more and played a little bit that it is a valuable product. If used well and wisely, it will help the Board in promoting it in developing cricket nations and also introducing new audiences to the game. It is an entertainment product and something I really look forward to being a part of.
Critics question your motivation level in IPL because you have already retired from international cricket…
That’s not the way I see it. Anyone who has played international sport realises that the competitive instincts in you get activated the moment you are in any type of competition, be it a friendly match or a Test match. Once you”re in you”re addicted to the competition. Just because I”ve retired from international cricket doesn’t mean I will lose that competitive instinct and the desire not only to see the Hyderabad team succeed but also see this concept succeed because I”ve given myself to the competition. So, I want to make sure it’s successful and look back in 20 or 30 years like the gentlemen involved in World Series Cricket (in the 1970s) who must be very proud of what they did for the game. I want to see the IPL succeed just as much as anything and obviously want the Hyderabad team right on top. I will be enjoying and playing just like I have been doing all along.
