I wasn’t nervous at any point and was just looking for the right ball and the opportunity to hit it out. I have worked hard, I believe nothing comes for free. I work on my batting against spin. This will give us a lot of confidence” said the wicketkeeper-batsman from Andhra Pradesh.

RCB skipper was delighted to see his team get over the line from a tough situation. He also kept a word on his team heading into the crucial Eliminator clash on Tuesday.

“A win like this gives you the confidence. We have played well in Sharjah. We have been able to handle the conditions and keep the opposition in check if things have gotten away from us. We have the experience already and we need to utilize it as much as possible to keep moving on in this tournament.”
