My dream is to play Test cricket some day, says Narine
The West Indian said that he was living a dream and he would continue to work harder.
“It’s dream for me to have such a good tournament and I’m living pretty much in a dream right now. All these have been possible for the hard work that I put in and I just hope that I’m able to work harder in the future,” he said.
On his preparation prior to the tournament, he said, “Before coming to India, I was not really worried about the wickets… I knew they would help me, but did not know that it would be to such an extent. I’m just taking it step by step… We need to keep up our winning spirit…”
