Sydney, Nov 11 (UNI) Notwithstanding he admitted that going fishing was a mistake, volatile all rounder Andrew Symonds dismissed suggestions that he owed an apology to his teammates for his act, which resulted to his suspension from the Aussie squad.

He, however, said he went through a confidential process which made him fully committed to the sport.

When asked if he owed any apology to his fellow players when he returns to the side after 76-day to participate in a Twenty20 exhibition match, the all-rounder said, ''I don't really look at life like that. I made a mistake, I admitted that. I have done a number of things to not allow things like that to happen again, so no I am not going in there to give anything back to them.'' ''I'm going in to make a go of my opportunity, which I have been given now,'' Symonds was quoted as saying by 'The Age'.

The middle order batsman will represent his country against an All-Stars team in his bid to make a comeback to the Test cricket.

''I was motivated to return because I enjoyed playing and was ready to carry the responsibilities that come with it,'' he said.

''I have been through a confidential process, which none of you will probably find out anything about, but it is something I have done and I have drawn a lot out of it and I am happy with where I am and, believe it or not, I have actually enjoyed it,'' he affirmed.
