Jaipur: Mar 30, 2013

Former Australia pacer Shaun Tait feels that seasoned players like Shane Warne, Matthew Hayden, Jason Gillespie shouldn’t have hurried retired which would have enabled a smooth transition for the next generation.

“I feel the likes of Jason Gillespie, Shane Warne, Michael Kasprowicz and Mathew Hayden were the players from whom the younger lot could learn and I feel they should have hung for more time,” Tait said during an interaction with the media.

“I am not sure but there have been some changes in Australian cricket and at the domestic level too. The youngsters, when inducted into the team learn from their seasoned teammates,” he said.

When asked whether the IPL was losing its global character in wake of the decision of pulling out Sri Lankan players out of Chennai and the few England players being barred by their respective counties, Tait called it a “shame”.

“It is not in the hands of players. They have to abide with what the authorities say. The IPL would not lose its global character but it is a shame that players have to face such situation. It is the decision taken by others. At the end of the day, IPL is an Indian tournament but a very good one,” he said.

Questioned on where the Royals’ campaign went haywire last year, he replied,”We were not up to the mark in the death overs in the previous season. I enjoy bowling at the death but your plans work out at times and some times, they don’t. I would again enjoy bowling at death.”
