Yet another serial on cricketing tips?
But it's not a dry coaching session. We are entertaining without being stand-up comics.

Then what is it about?
We are talking about' for instance' what's going through Viv Richards' mind when he is walking to the middle' with his typical swagger.

The mental side of cricket...
Yes. We're not here to teach you how to play cricket. But maybe we can teach youngsters how to think like Sachin.

Your usp?
Isn't it fascinating to have Gavaskar talking about, for instance, the forward glance?

Is it also about heroes?
It is about how human they are.

But do you have a market here?
I think Indians love cricket.

Even after match-fixing?
Even if only 10 per cent watches our show, we're still talking about 100 million.

Are you enjoying your new role?
Indians seem to like me and that's why I keep coming back.

Any comments on the current Indian team?
I am not bothered as long as my Prince of Calcutta is doing...
