"I think it was cool being able to see the excitement of the crowd and also being able to really almost see how the players shift when the different batters come out to bat and have that kind of a strategy formed throughout the game. It was something really cool to watch and something which I paid attention to and I also loved watching the sixes.Hitting the six-pointers are my favourite", Phelps added.
