“It is important to keep the faith and be solid in mind. I marvel at the talent in the dressing room. I am sure things are going to get better for them soon,” Richards said before the start of Delhi’s match against Mumbai Indians at the Ferozeshah Kotla here yesterday.
“I know the team has plenty of players of proven quality and I will try to make an impact over the next few days.”
IPL is home to many Caribbean cricketers and Richards was happy about their presence in the cash-rich league.
“I am happy with what’s happening with West Indies cricket. Guys like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Smith are doing really well here,” he said.
Interestingly, it was at the Kotla where Richards scored his first Test hundred — in 1974-75. “I love this part of the world,” he said.
The towering personality interacted with players from both sides.
