“There haven’t been any injuries or setbacks. Everything is good and we’re just looking forward to this tournament. This tournament basically we taking it as learning experience in the Super premier Division. We want to know how the players would take the pressure, the crowd support, the environment and the atmosphere in the Super Premier Division.”
