Insisting that all he wants is to preserve the memorabilia, World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev said Punjab Cricket Association can keep them as long as they take care of the souvenirs.

A fortnight after his cut-out was brought down from the Mohali Stadium, a hurt Kapil wrote an e-mail to the PCA yesterday, asking them to return him all the memorabilia he had gifted to the association.

The former all rounder, however, made it clear that he had no intention of seeking those back but at the same time he could not see those invaluable souvenirs being thrown to the dustbin either.

"I never asked them to return (those memorabilia). I said 'if you wish not to keep my stuff, give it back to me, rather than throwing it into the dustbin', so that I can preserve those," Kapil told NDTV.

"I had no intention to have my things back but (wanted it back) if they wish not to keep it. As the media reported, they removed my poster, so I felt little uneasy because I had given a few very important things to them," said the legendary all-rounder who incurred Cricket Board's wrath after joining the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL).

And he would have no problem at all if PCA decides to preserve the souvenirs, Kapil said.
"If they want to keep, I'll be very happy and delighted... I'm not trying to say give me my things back. Please keep it, if you want," he said.

Kapil, who would be felicitated by the BCCI along with his 1983 World Cup winning teammates in Delhi on June 24, said he did not have any grudge against PCA, even though he has joined the 'rebel' league.

"I respect the Punjab Cricket Association because they are doing a great job to look after cricket in this part of the country, in my home town.

"I hope we all are working for cricket. There is difference of opinion but that does not mean one can say the other is wrong. I have an opinion which is different from theirs. I respect them and I want them to respect me all in the same way," Kapil said.
