I was star-struck when Sir Viv walked in: MahelaNew Delhi: Delhi Daredevils skipper Mahela Jayawardene today admitted that he was "star-struck" like any other youngster when the legendary Sir Vivian Richards met the team at the hotel on Saturday.

"We knew that the franchise had planned about him joining the squad. But yesterday, when he walked in, I was like star-struck as I was meeting him in person for the first time," Jayawardene said.

Asked whether Richards` presence made a difference, the skipper replied, "Definitely, it did. It is simply great to speak to him about the game - the simple manner in which he describes the game. It`s not only inspirational for youngsters, but also for seniors like us.
"He told us that when you are pushed back to the wall, you need to come out of it and keep improving and be more competitive."
