"The last two years, that was a process of my development. Not every young player gets these opportunities,
but I could understand different cultures, different conditions, and learn from different people.
Two years ago I didn't know my strengths as a batsman, or my role in teams or situations.
Now I am starting to put it together.
Now I understand when I need to play a certain way, and what shots to play when, and it's working out for me.
But I didn't happen overnight.
From 20 to 23."
"In the Global T20 in Canada  I got the opportunity to bat four
instead of going in the last five overs and bash[ing] it. And then I did it in CPL.
I opened the batting in T10 and then BPL at four.
And this is all in the last 12 months."
