New York (USA), June 08 (ANI): Saurabh Netravalkar who played a key role in USA’s historic triumph over Pakistan in the ongoing T-20 World Cup, spoke about his jourey in an exclusive chat with ANI. The Left-Arm pacer who picked up 2-18 and bowled the critical super over that gave the USA the win over Pakistan says it was a special feeling to perform well against a top side. "It's a very special feeling for everyone. We have worked hard for the tournament...Frankly speaking, we did not think that we would win. We only thought of giving our best...What I had in mind was to keep the process simple, I had seen their bowling too, so I went in with a similar plan," he said "The conditions are very unpredictable here. The new stadiums, including the one in New York which has been built for the event - we don't know how it would turn out. We have not played there. We played on the Dallas pitch last year in a major league. So, we were aware of that pitch. It is a little good for batting. But the wicket slows down a little in the morning...So, we had a little advantage of playing there earlier. We knew what we had to do," he added
