As a part of a promotional campaign, a private company is sponsoring the visit of Syed Kirmani, Dilip Vengsarkar, Madan Lal, Balwinder Singh Sandhu and Kirti Azad to South Africa to cheer and motivate the Indian team.
Kirmani would particularly cheer for batsman-cum- wicketkeeper Rahul Dravid, he told reporters during the `Heroes for Heroes' campaign that was launched here. ``We will be in South Africa to give the Indian team useful tips which we learnt during our World Cup campaign,'' said Kirmani. ``It is also a fine feeling that our efforts of winning the Cup are still recognised by people and I am truely excited at the prospect of going to the World Cup,'' he said.
Former seamer Karsan Ghavri, who will be the manager of the group, said ``this is the first time someone has given us the recognition and it will be great to support our boys in South Africa''.
Sandhu, who became a hero after claiming Gordon Greenidge's wicket with a fine inswinger in the final, said, ``I have never gone for a World Cup after our own final and I am extremely delighted to sit with my old teammates and egg the team on''.
Vengsarkar, Madan Lal and Azad did not attend the function due to personal reasons.
