The talent that's there in the dressing room, I marvel. I am sure things are going to get going for them soon," Richards said ahead of Delhi's match against Mumbai Indians here today.<br /> <br /> "I know the team has plenty of players of proven quality and I will see and try to make an impact over the next few days," he added.<br /> <br /> The West Indian great was delighted to see players from his part of the world setting the tournament ablaze with their performances.<br /> <br /> "I am happy with what's happening with West Indies cricket, guys like <a href="/tags/Chris-Gayle/post" target="_blank">Chris Gayle</a>, (Keiron) Pollard and <a href="/tags/Dwayne-Smith/post" target="_blank">Dwayne Smith</a> who is here today, they are doing really well here."<br /> <br /> Richards has a connect with the city as "it was here that that I scored my first Test hundred".<br /> <br /> "Love this part of the world."<br /> <br /> On a lighter note, when asked by his contemporary <a href="/tags/Sunil-Gavaskar/post" target="_blank">Sunil Gavaskar</a> if he was actually out on 12 during a Test match against India way back in 1974, a smiling Richards replied, "Sunny, that's still there in your mind. That was 1974 and now it's 2013, but i still maintain that I was not out."
