On what he reckoned was his best Test knock ?
I think in England in 1986, a couple of knocks I played were very
difficult ones. I had fifties in West Indies and Australia also but I
think the crucial one was in Karachi...
On combining the duties of wicketkeeping and captaincy
Actually from the cricketing angle, it's always difficult to be a
wicketkeeper captain. There are many who've done it like Ian Healy and
Adam Gilchrist. But Moin Khan is struggling with his keeping...
On the lack of quality keepers in the country
I think basically we never groomed any wicketkeeper. Lately if you
see, there's a trend that only one keeper is taken on a tour while
according to me...
On who he thinks is the best keeper in India right now
I haven't seen much but we have one Milap Mewada in Baroda. I think
he's very outstanding. He played for India Under-19 as well. The only
thing is he's not...
On the circumstances in which he began his involvement with coaching
I wanted to give something back to cricket, specially for Baroda...
I've travelled so much, seen a lot of academies... We have a coaching
system here, but it's not quality coaching. Boys go to coaching
classes for 5-6 hours, that's not done...
On the promising youngsters in his academy
We have about 60 boys overall and we're concentrating more on the
16-18 age group... There are a few boys coming up like Kunal Pandya
who's a left handed batsman...
On his future plans
I'm doing a lot of coaching for the ICC Development Programme. It's
a specialised wicketkeeping job and I'm busy... I went to Bangladesh
and I will be going to Kenya and Uganda...
