“I have scored a couple of fifties but that’s not enough for me for sure and no one even congratulated me after scoring a fifty and you feel bad as well,” joked the 22-year-old.

The 22-year-old further said that he is glad that the team is doing well despite him not being in the best of form.

“It happens sometimes but I am glad that my team is doing well. “In cricket and in life, the graph always goes up and down and it’s never going to always go up. So it’s just a matter of time that I middle those balls and get those big runs again,” he further said.
