Jonty Rhodes addresses the media as Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar and Sunil Gavaskar look on
Sachin Tendulkar said, "This (League) is a great platform for all of us cricketers and whoever associated with this tournament to spread this message that lives cannot be lost because of indiscipline and carelessness. We have to follow rules."
Gavaskar urged the road transport authorities to look into the lenient manner in which licenses are issued in India. "I would like to take up the issue of licenses. The way the driving licenses are given without any genuine test. When I got my license after I came back from the West Indies tour (in 1971), I used to struggle to reverse and park the car. But the driving instructor said it doesn't matter. I will give you a license if you drive straight. So, that's how I got my license. Sometimes these types of leniences are the cause of accidents
Sachin will lead the India team which will also feature Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan RP Singh and Ajit Agarkar
