Leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has said he would be firing on all cylinders in the World Cup to boost his depleted side on the Caribbean soil that left for the global spectacle without injured pace duo of Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif.
“The news of Shoaib and Asif was a big blow for our World Cup campaign but amid the mishap, I am eagerly looking forward to take wickets in the West Indies to help my team which is going through crisis right now,” Kaneria told reporters here before his team’s departure to the West Indies on Thursday.
Kaneria said more responsibilities had fallen on his shoulders in the important tournament.
“More responsibilities have fallen on my shoulders after Shoaib and Asif were ruled out of the World Cup. I will try my best to lead our bowling and come up to expectations of my team and the captain,” he expressed.
“I have really worked hard for the World Cup as it is a great chance for me to make a permanent place in the team’s one-day squad. I have worked on my fielding too which is very important in this form of the game,” said Kaneria who is not considered even a good fielder.
