I had a story to share... especially with the younger generation.

He admits to not getting his way on the day of the CWC semi-final last year in terms of the player selection.

I had a gut feel that particular day and I didn't get my way... it happens to all captains.

While he would not name the person who made the call on that day about selection, he said there was a lot of "speculation" about what happened.
