How does it feel to be on a fourth tour? How was it then and now?
I am enjoying it. This has come about after a long time. For us it is also a goodwill tour. We want relations to improve, the tension to go. In 1982, people queued up outside our hotels in thousands to have a glimpse of us. When we went shopping roads would get blocked.
Your relations with Indian players?
That's always been good. On the ground there is tension. That should be there. In my time I had many friends. We would even stand together in functions. Sunny, Ravi, Vengsarkar, Doshi.
What about your relations with the current lot of Pakistani players, especially in the light of match-fixing allegations?
These players have played with me. They respect me. I don't have a problem. Any solution to the problem has to be long term. Not a ban for a few matches. If players are innocent, they shouldn't be bothered. You see the main thing is that we have to set an example for the generations to come. We have to protect them. We have to put the fear of God in them.
