Farokh Engineer kept wicket for India during a distinguished international career between 1961 and 1975.
He also played for Bombay and Lancashire, and now gives his expert views for Cricket World as a Lycamobile ambassador.
In all he played 46 Tests and five One-Day Internationals including appearing at the first Cricket World Cup in 1975.
Former India and Lancashire wicket-keeper Farokh Engineer fondly recalls his time spent keeping wicket to fast bowler Brian Statham, who he describes as an "absolute genius".
Former Indian cricketer Farokh Engineer praised the commercial success of the Indian Premier League.
Farokh Engineer said after the semi-finals that Australia were playing like champions and they backed that up by beating New Zealand in the World Cup final. Congratulations to them, he now adds.
The two best teams in the competition have made it through to the final but only a brave man or a daft man would pick a winner between the two, reckons Farokh Engineer.
A target of 329 was just too much for India but credit to Australia, they were good with the bat, good with the ball and it was a good all-round performance from them. They played like champions.
For me, the best four sides in the competition have gone through to the semi-finals but I make India and New Zealand the slight favourites to get through to the final.
That was a complete victory for India, as most of us expected. Bangladesh were fortunate to be in the quarter-finals and they didn't really live up to their expectations.
Sri Lanka were terrible today. I don't know what got into them - nerves? But they are all experienced players, fantastic players, says Lycamobile ambassador Farokh Engineer.
After yesterday's win over West Indies, India are really on a roll and they are not just going to the quarter-finals - there is a strong case of getting to the semi-finals as well now, says Farokh Engineer.
India were expected to beat United Arab Emirates today and they did. It was a World Cup cakewalk for them.
Another Sunday, another World Cup win for India, this time over South Africa. I was very happy with the performance. I think India blew South Africa away, they choked them.
It was India all the way today, says Farokh Engineer. Winning by 76 runs is quite a big margin in a 50-over contest.
