By the time I finished playing cricket, I felt it was 50-50 ratio,” adding that “But now I tend to agree with my friend Gavaskar it's 60% mental strength & 40 % talent. Today role of mind will be more than 60%”.

The former cricket captain, who lifted World Cup trophy for Pakistan, encouraged Pakistani cricket team Captain by stating that “In Sarfaraz we are fortunate to have a bold captain & today he will have to be at his daring best”.
