He wasn't rushed or not in control at any point. He's a superstar who will do big things for the franchise and the country.”


“I think the clarity and confidence he is carrying is amazing. Today's innings was one of the finest, he never looked rushed. It felt like someone was throwing balls and he was hitting,” he added.
