Adelaide: Being a part of the 2011 World Cup winning team, India’s middle-order batsman Suresh Raina is no stranger to the mega-event, and this time around he is looking forward to guide the younger players in the side though he still shies away from calling himself a senior.

“The responsibilities are the same irrespective of the tournament and age. 2011 was different since there were a lot of seniors in the side. This World Cup I won’t call myself a senior but I do have a good camaraderie with the younger guys in the side as compared to 2011. Then I mostly listened to things but this time I can talk to the youngsters, which is an extra responsibility. We have a good team and hopefully we will do well in the tournament,” Raina said at an open media session here on Saturday.
