I will attempt to progress nicely on the off chance that I get chose.”
“Everything I can do is attempt to be hundred percent fit and ensure that my exhibition is alright. On the off chance that I am not accessible in spite of it [fitness and performance], at that point I don’t have anything to state and in the event that I am not chosen for this arrangement [against Zimbabwe], at that point I will attempt to perform with the goal that I can be accessible for the following arrangement.
“Till date nobody said anything to me right now it doesn’t make a difference on the off chance that they said anything somewhere else in light of the fact that toward the day’s end I will possibly act as per the manner in which they need and in the event that they take such choice [of dropping me], at that point I will inquire as to why and make strides with the goal that I can make a rebound in the accompanying arrangement.”

So it was not humiliating for me; rather it looked typical as they are stating what they are thinking. Undoubtedly, there is a match of BCL and I will attempt to perform with the goal that I make the selectors and individuals from the group the board upbeat. In the event that they feel that I can increase the value of the group than they will pick me in the forthcoming arrangement.”
