Which place are we talking about?
• During the 6 minute Prologue as released in
December 2011, there was a large spread

• "That's the only game of cricket in my life, which I don't
enjoy. This is a game where I can't handle it. Otherwise
I would love this game. But this is what our job is. We
have to be honest to our teams and make sure we do
well for our teams. Hope a situation does not arise
where I'm bowling the last over to him with 10-15 runs
required. That's the only time when I think I would be
thinking negative. Otherwise I will always have a
challenge. I will be really happy if he scores a 50 or 100
and we go on to win the match."

between 1982 and 2007, that there were 103 fatal, disabling or

gymnastics (nine such injuries) and track (seven).
