"Sachin met me and suggested I know you don’t interfere with the team selection but you please tell the selectors not to include players of my generation in the Twenty20 squad. Give an opportunity to the youngsters.’ Now who would come and say ‘don’t induct us’, when that means losing a few lakh rupees?"
1. I don't interefere with selections. So I am good
2. I am good liar because I said, in the third para, "I told him I would not interfere but would definitely convey it to the selectors" and had the horse sense to cover my ass consistently by later quoting Tendulkar as saying "I know you don't interfere.."
3. Although I never interefere with team selections, every issue I did not interefere with was consistently implemented by selectors. Wow! What a coincidence?
4. Although we play a sport, we also double up as a sacrificing-for-each-other family like you see in the mega serials.
