    What will be the Indirect speech if the Direct Speech is: Mike said, "I should go to the party".

    Is this homework?

    Whether it is or not, you should try first.

    Note that 'direct and indirect speech' need not be capitalised.

    Do you thing we should use "should have" in the indirect speech? So in indirect speech can we say like Mike said that he should have gone to the party? Please correct me if I am wrong.
