"I don't give up (efforts) because I can't live without cricket,&quit; he told Sportstime, a daily sports programme telecast on Doordarshan's news and current affairs channel, just after two marvelous knocks of 88 and 114 against Delhi in a Super League encounter here on Sunday.
About some of his sterling knocks at domestic level, Kambli said "Domestic matches can't be taken lightly. I don't relax whenever I am in a match situation, I like to get into three-figure knocks."
Kambli said he was working hard with his physio Dr Aijaz Ashai on fitness and was in peak physical condition.
The southpaw however secretly rues the missed opportunities, like the 1991 Australian tour. "Whatever happened I have forgotten but I think I needed more chances that time because I was batting very well (at that time)."
The Mumbai batsman said his double century against England was most satisfying because "I came into only my third test and I could not believe it."
He said media was free to write about people's personal life but it did not affect his game because he never mixed the two.
