A long-term plan is more important so I will not be worried if it takes a couple of weeks more
I will know how much impact my elbow is going to take only when I practice more. Frankly it is too early to say when I will be back.
I think he set great examples in the way cricket should be played and in tough conditions he would produce some tremendous performances
Anyone would want to play like him, he was completely at a different level as far as mental toughness is concerned.
I admire the work he does off the field as well, especially in Calcutta, and I'm sure people back home would be wishing well for him.
I think I have already spoken a lot. Now it is time for me to play.

I am not thinking too far ahead, just want to take it one thing at a time.
I feel when somebody has been playing cricket for a long time, he creates a separate identity for himself.
Beating Pakistan is always special because they are a tough team and we have a bit if a history regarding Pakistan.
It doesn't always happen according to the way you have planned things out but I feel if you have covered most of the aspects, it does help out there in the middle.
If one man is representing India in cricket, then yes, blame that person when things go wrong.
But eventually it is a game of cricket.
It has been very good here, but the World Cup game was different. It had a different significance to it.
My point of view is that when I am playing cricket I cannot think that this game is less or more important.
