Nikhil shared with Zoomcricket – It’s a great feeling to contribute for your team, even though I feel bad our team lost the match but its always a learning experience and it’s been a match to remember vs all top division players of Railways. Also in the Prahaar Big Bash match, Danish showed great sportsman spirit by handing over his MoM trophy to me. I am working hard on my game and hopefully many more performances to come.
