Summary

Not out".Three years on, playing for Delhi Capitals in the IPL, Paul says he believes he was right but won't probably do it again because he doesn't want all that backlash again."At first, it was definitely tough," Paul told ESPNcricinfo. Ian Bishop, who was doing commentary in Bangladesh at the time, and Tino Best both supported him."After I did it, after seeing all the comments, I was definitely devastated you know," Paul said. After reading all the comments and stuff, I just wanted to lock myself away and forget about it."As luck would have it, Paul played the senior world Cup qualifying tournament in Zimbabwe last year."It was definitely anger in the crowd and they were disappointed," Paul said of the reaction from Zimbabwe that day. Now I have matured more and I don't think I will probably do it again."Asked why, he said: "Well like I said, after I did it there was definitely a lot of doubt and I got a lot of stick for it and like I said, I saw some players who I looked up to (saying things)."But that doesn't make them right, does it?"That's true. Asked if it would help if an established bowler such as Ashwin stood by his stance and brought about a change to the attitude, Paul said: "I mean if he backs it up, it will definitely give me confidence you know.
