Why you chose to be part of Frooti BCL season 2? Your reasons, please share.
The very first reason is that I love to play cricket. Secondly, I never used to socialize and I come to India after a long time, so I made a conscious decision that I will go out, meet people and do things.
Why you chose to be part of Chennai Swagger?
I didn’t chose them, they chose me (laughs). They saw the potential in me and were the first one to approach me. As I love cricket to I said yes to them. I like the team spirit in Chennai Swaggers and everyone is a good performer.
Who is your favorite cricketer and why share your love for him.
I haven’t been able to watch cricket for a very long time. Nevertheless, my all time favorite cricketer is Sachin Tendulkar.
Any memory on cricket matches in the past which you want to share please tell in details.
As a kid I used to play a lot of cricket in my school days. I even run away from home. Every now and then I used to sneak out my room to play cricket with the neighbor kids. Eventually, my mother used to figure out that I ran away without telling her.
What is your daily training routine?
I am not undergoing any physical training right now. Till now the toughest training I went through is to prepare for my role in Mahabharat. After that I have not undergone any physical training.
Who is your best pal in your team, please share your rapport with him or her.
I don’t have any ‘best pal’ in the team. Shobhit is quite nice, actually everyone is very nice and supportive.
