The arrest of his three teammates from Rajasthan Royals for allegedly being involved in spot-fixing during the ongoing T20 tournament has reportedly irked Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait. But choosing not to reflect on it, he plans to make better use of his time and find a way to make international players settle in comfortably for this annual league that takes place in the Indian subcontinent. Tait is set to make a documentary that provides effective guideline to players, who are a part of the different teams associated with the league.
Confirming the news, he says, “It’s true that I am going to shoot a docu-style video, which I feel will help players who do not belong to the subcontinent.”
As part of the video, Tait will talk about how international players should first acclimatise to conditions in India and then train for the league. “Players from different countries are coming to India now. Since I have lived and played in India, I feel that I could contribute in
this way,” says Tait. He would also get some other international players, like Shane Watson, Brett Lee and Shane Warne, to give their inputs. He is planning to feature some of the stadiums he thinks are the best for practice and would also mention their shortfalls.
