  • When it was asked about being the son of a legendary cricketer, he said,

    “Being the son of a Legendary Cricketer. It has advantages and disadvantages. I faced comparison more than pressure. People wanted me to keep wickets like my father which was humanly not possible, they failed to understand that. I always loved pressure; it would bring the best out of me. The adrenaline rush is what I crave for and I get that in pressure situations. I get a lot of respect outside cricket just because I am a celebrity’s son which is so overwhelming.”
