“This IPL was a confidence booster. But I would not say that I am satisfied because there were a lot of other opportunities where I should have done better. And as a team we had a chance to win the last game to qualify for playoffs. But the positive is that I got runs at the top of the order and while chasing as well. So learned a lot.”
