As Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan entered the field as openers of Team India, the veteran-actor said: “Rohit Sharma looks nervous at the start of the innings, a feeling I can very much relate to, at this moment.”

He also took to Twitter to share his experience.

“Commentary for the India Pak match over, an honor to be in the room as legends - Kapil, Rahul, Shoaib .. predicted 300 .. got it !!” Big B tweeted Sunday.

A day before the match, the 72-year-old expressed his eagerness to sit in the commentary box.

and hoping against hope that I get those directions right for the cricket,” he shared on his official blog Saturday.
