Addressing a press conference together, a rather shy Munaf Patel looked desperate to cling on to whatever opportunity he gets.
''I am happy to be included in the team and if I get a chance I will try my best to perform,'' said the pacer who was show-horned into the side after taking 10 wickets in for Board President's XI in the warm-up match against England.
Munaf, who was trained at the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai under Dennis Lillee and TA Sekhar said, ''I have learnt a lot in the nets.'' RP Singh, on the other hand, believes the experience of the Pakistan tour has made him a better bowler.
''On the Pakistan tour, I gained confidence and now I want to maintain consistency. I have learnt a lot while bowling in Pakistan.
I am happy to be in the Indian team and determined to give best performance,'' he said.
