“When I played for CSK, I was the only uncapped player. All others had represented their teams at the international level. Some, like Brendon McCullum, Faf du Plessis and obviously MS Dhoni, were skippers of their respective national tests. I did feel nervous in the beginning. But I was at ease and that helped me open up. I had a lot of fun playing for CSK.” concluded the all-rounder.
