NDTV: Do you think the Sensex might not ever reach the 21,000 mark again?
Shankar Sharma: There is very interesting statistics that no market in the world ever has given you six consecutive up years. It is no brainer that India has had five up years till December 2007 and sixth year had to be a down year. Further interesting statistics is that after five consecutive up years, 90 per cent of the time those market will never see those highs again for a minimum of three years. But I am not ruling out that you may reach close to 21,000 mark if there is sharp fall in oil prices.
"If you remember, at the start of the tournament, I had said that I want my team to enjoy the game and express themselves freely on the field. Because when you take the pressure of a big game, and start worrying about the results, it does affect your performance. So, I told my team not to take any pressure, which is what they did."
"I never dreamt of playing for India. I just played the game for the love of it."
