Former pacer Michael Kasprowicz, who played 38 Tests and 43 ODIs for Australia, switched to academics post retirement and acquired an MBA degree.


He was part of two Test tours to India including the one in 2004 when Australia beat the hosts 2-1.

The Aussies have not won Test series in India since then.

"It is always a challenge playing in India. You got to make the adjustment pretty quickly. There are not a lot warm-up games these days so you got to make the most of them," said the Queenslander.

It has been almost 20 years since he and his team were blown away by the "desert storm" in Sharjah where Sachin Tendulkar single-handedly led India to the title with a famous win over Australia.

"When was it? 19 years ago I think. Sachin played like dream," he recalled.

Is Virat Kohli as good as Tendulkar?

"There can only be one Sachin Tendulkar, though Virat has got a phenomenal record and he is leading the team pretty well. But you cannot compare anyone to Sachin,"  stated the former paceman.
