The right-handed batsman said, “I never thought this day is going to come to my life. When I came to the team, I was always looking to perform, get more opportunities and build solid consistent career and contribute to the team in winning games.”
“I won’t say it is not a stressful job, however, it is fun. It is all about understanding the strengths and weaknesses of people around you. The way I came up in my career is similar. I knew my strengths and weaknesses but people did not like me as such. You can have different ways, you can have different style till your intent is good,” he told Mandira Bedi during a talk show after inaugurating Nitesh Hub Mall in Pune.
He was earlier leading the Test series. Also, it was under his captaincy that the India U-19 team had clinched the colts World Cup in 2008.
