New Delhi, Aug 30(ANI): Delhi Daredevil cricketer Dirk Nannes, who has been in the news for his alliance with numerous teams, has said that he considers himself lucky for the opportunities that he has been enjoying.

"I guess I've been lucky and bowled pretty well a couple of times and it's been a pretty exciting journey," The Age quoted Nannes, as saying.

"I just want to try and stay on the park as long as I can. The more I stay on the park the better I bowl," he added.

Nannes was the only player caught in a bidding war between his Indian Premier League (IPL) team Delhi Daredevils and his home team Victoria Bushrangers for the Champions League, which is scheduled for October.

Though the Daredevils won bid due to a contractual clause, which gives preference to the IPL, but Daredevils will have to compensate Bushrangers with 200,000 dollars, keeping the three million dollar first prize money in mind.

"I'd signed an agreement with Delhi so I didn't really have a choice. It's an awkward situation for sure, but cricket is a funny game," Nannes said.

"In the last 12 months I've played for six sides or something like that, so we're all used to playing against each other. We'll have a beer afterwards and we'll go back and play together back home," he added. (ANI)
