“Normally players from the hostels don’t give much importance to their fitness, but my case was different thanks to my coach. He helped me focus a lot on my batting and bowling which worked out really well for me in the future.”

“The future is uncertain, and therefore I can’t predict it.”

“When you’re successful, there will be friends, people, VIPs rallying around you. When you’re down and out, you’re all alone. That’s why it’s important to be a good person.”
