“I plan for 2-3 overs, think of who is likely to bowl and who I can target, big-short boundary, who I can target and ensure the required rate doesn’t go up too much. Every time Dhoni tries to encourage me and start afresh every game. Learn from every game and move forward. I am just looking to learn as much as possible till he is here,” the CSK opener concluded.
