After the lunch break one day during the 1992-93 Durban Test against South Africa, I walked into the field feeling nicely pumped up to do battle against the feisty South Africans. As soon as I reached my fielding position, I could hear Kapil Dev calling out to me from the dressing room. What is he doing in the dressing room, I thought. I soon discovered that he was admonishing me for wearing his trousers! In all the excitement of the Test, I had put on his pair, which was kept for drying in the dressing room. I had never seen ‘Paaji’ so furious before.
