How important is this series for Zimbabwean cricket?
We've been looking forward to this Indian tour for a long time now.

A victory against the Board President's XI... Is this the ideal kind of start for the series?
A victory is always sweet. But we needed a couple of more warm-up matches.

To get used to the slow pitches here in India?
Yes. The priority is to acclamatise your players to the conditions and the pace of the wicket.

Your trumpcard for this series?Your trumpcard for this series?
This is a very good side, provided everybody plays to the best of their ability.

How difficult is it to coach a team which is forever the underdog?
It is disappointing. But this is a learning curve everybody goes through.

But isn't it time you delivered?
We have. In nine years we've won three Tests. Compare this to the India.

We are here to play cricket.
