 That’s definitely a goal of mine... If I can, I’d like to play till the next World Cup. We haven’t won any edition and it would be great if we did so in 2015... It would be nice if I could be a member of that team.

 We've always had some good battles. He is a very quiet and kind man. I had the good fortune of playing with him at the IPL and he was a man that worked hard on his game. He set high standards for himself and for India. What he has achieved in the game is incredible. He had one of the best techniques in the game and was always a prize wicket to get. The game will be a little poorer without him but I wish him well in his retirement.

 I would also like to announce that I will be making a personal donation to the Yuvraj Singh Foundation. As we all know, Yuvraj is going through a difficult time at the moment battling a serious illness and I went through a similar experience when my own father died of cancer at a relatively young age,

 We've covered all our bases. We have the balance in the team to be able to play on any type of tracks that come in front of us, which is something we really haven't had for a while.

 A lot is made in the media about the choker thing. We don't even think about it. I think the media uses this tag far too often, in fact every time the team loses a match. They should go and look up the meaning of chokers in the dictionary first. This tag does not haunt us. Eleven of our 15 players will be playing their first World Cup so it's not something we are even thinking about.

 They are a dangerous side. They have a few players who can change the game on their day. We have been on top of them recently and played some good cricket. And that's what we will look to do again. Play well and put the pressure back on them.

 I'm going to keep going as long as I can. When you're in good form, especially when you have back-to-back games you have to keep going. I'm enjoying bowling as well. I've done a lot of training form the fitness point of view and it's good. I've worked hard for the last couple of years.

 We have a lot of good players still to join us (Ross Taylor, Kevin Pietersen, Cameron White). It's still early in the tournament, and we're far from qualifying for the semi-finals, so a lot of hard work is still ahead. We're taking it one game at a time and not getting ahead of ourselves. Still, it's nice to think of the depth that's coming in.
