During the last Australia series I had a leg injury and underwent surgery in Australia. I missed ten months and missed the T- 20 World Cup in Australia.Today I am scoring heavily in LPL which gives me confidence”.

“It is always very interesting to play good innings and make good partnership during this LPL. I knew We have a busy schedule ahead Indian, New Zealand series as well as domestic National Super League but my duty is to play my game. As players we have to give of our best and get success and hope I can get back to the National team said the former St Sebastian and National under 19 opener.
