An interview in the Hindustan Times, with the vice captain. Clips:
India will have an answer to every missile Pakistan fires at us. Be it pace or spin, India have the batsmen to match them. Even if they give us a cement track, we have bowlers who can torment them. Moreover, the Pakistani batsmen are not known to be technically strong. We will prepare our strategy only after looking at the wickets there.

And, ahem, this -- so typical, you can almost hear the man speak:
Last time, you made 309 in Multan and were given the ‘title’ of ‘Sultan of Multan’. This time around, Multan is not a Test venue … would you be missing Multan?
This title was give to me by the media. Actually, I am feeling a bit strange about the fact that a Test is not being played there. But it doesn’t matter… whether the match is played in Multan or Karachi. I could get a new title somewhere else! My aim would be to play a big knock whichever the venue.

PostScript: And so to the end of the day; today is the office Christmas party (I know I know, Christmas was three days ago but there was a strike, remember? Anyways, who needs a reason to party? Off for the day, see you guys tomorrow.
