Its been a privilege playing for India and the feeling of winning the World Cup hasn't sunk in as yet.

Had I scored a century it would have been the icing on the cake..but more than the century, winning the World Cup was much more important.

Obviously if you have worked so hard we should get the original trophy, it wasn't like a bilatteral series or a small tournament so we will be happy only if we get the original trophy.

This was not the best innings I have played but definitly the most important innings of my life. My best is still yet to come. We were 0 for 1 and the entire country's expectation was there.

I think people and the media have been saying a lot about my form.... that I wasn't in good form..I am still the second highest run getter and if that is not good enough then I don't know what is good enough. I think 4 half centuries from 9 games and in every game there has been a contribution ...
