Your hobbies and interests outside cricket?

Apart from cricket I enjoy watching movies and listening to music

How are you preparing for the upcoming IPL Season?

I am working hard at improving all aspects of my game with special emphasis on my bowling. The Ranji season has just concluded and I am fit and raring to go. I can’t wait for the IPL season to start. Bowling at the death to world class cricketers is going to be a challenge and I am preparing myself well in advance.

Your thought on sharing the dressing room with some of the iconic players of Chennai Super Kings?

One of the greatest advantages of sharing a dressing room with the likes of M S Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Michael Hussey and several other prominent players is the priceless knowledge of the game that I will have privy to.

Your thoughts on playing under an inspirational captain like M S Dhoni?

I have always admired him as a player and as a leader and to play in a team led by him is a dream come true. Dhoni’s poise and composure under trying circumstances is a trait that every young cricketer looks to emulate and it’s a privilege for me to learn from the master himself.
