"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 [2018] 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."

"I had a decision to make - to go to the BPL or play in the West Indies, and I chose BPL
because I wasn't sure how long my body was going to last.

Then I was suspended by CWI [for playing in the BPL].

So I started playing T20 : PSL, BPL, HK Blitz and IPL while I was banned."

A freelance cricketer was born ;)
