“Playing abroad has changed the way I think. Different challenging terrains to hit, facing tall, fast and lanky pitchers, heavy fields that are worthless for your shots. All this I could not touch in India. I still have a lot to learn and experience ”.
Furthermore, he adds,
“My dad always says, ‘Be consistent and prove yourself over and over again’ … I’m ready to wait … If it’s my luck, it will happen.”
- He was once asked about being the son of a legendary cricketer, to which he replied:
“Being the son of a legendary cricketer. Has advantages and disadvantages. I was faced with comparison rather than pressure. People wanted me to hold land like my father, which was not humanly possible, they didn’t understand. I always loved the pressure; would get the best of me. Adrenaline is what I long for and I get it in pressure situations. I get a lot of respect outside of cricket just because I’m the son of a celebrity, which is overwhelming. “
