During an interview he said, “After being kicked out of the Ranji team, I was mentally very disturbed. I was not able to enjoy my game. Then, I had an interaction with Gautam Gambhir for a long time and he gave me lessons about my mistakes. Since we have played together in a cricket club for almost 10-12 years, he knows me very well.”
2. When he was playing with Mumbai Indians in IPL 2017, he came across cricket legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Mahela Jayawardene and Rohit Sharma. He got good training from the legends which even Gambhir couldn’t give. He played according to his mentors which worked in his favour during the matches.
