Mumbai: Robin Singh, one of the world's oldest One-day player is annoyed at national selectors' conclusion that he is now too old to play. The 38-year-old Tamil Nadu captain was not included in the 26-strong probables list for the Zimbabwe's tour but he told ESPN sports channel that ''if people have decided that it is time for me to retire, then they are mistaken''. Answering a viewer's query of his future plans, Robin Singh emphatically answered that he would like to decide his own future hence he was still looking forward of playing in the World Cup in South Africa in 2003. Robin Singh learnt his cricket in Trinidad before returning to India and then representing the country as the team member under Dilip Vengsarkar's leadership in 1989-90 in West Indies. Since then he has played 136 One-day Internationals and a solitary Test. In an indirect dig at selectors he said ''I do not want any favours from anybody and I have no problems with my fitness nor do I see any problems coming up.''
