But I was on sadhana for a long time and was doing girivalam (parikrama) in Thiruvandamalai.

Whenever it comes to Venkatesh Prasad's career, there is definitely talk of his fight with Pakistan's Amir Sohail in the 1996 Cricket World Cup. In that match played in Bengaluru, Amir Sohail first hit Venkatesh Prasad's ball for a four and pointed to the boundary. On the next ball, Venkatesh scattered Amir Sohail's bails and signalled him to go towards the pavilion. Even today, this moment is also recorded in the special moments of the wars on the cricket field between India and Pakistan.
