Nishanth shared with Zoomcricket- I have been playing since 19 years now, my aim has always been to win matches for my teams. My core revolves around hardwork, fitness and constant improvement on my technique. It’s very important for a player to talk with himself, understand what kind of mindset, what kind of stance, what kind of technique needs to be followed. One has to immerse completely in practice sessions and matches while at the same time don’t stress about failures or worry about future. Cricket is a beautiful sport which needs to be enjoyed first. I have worked very hard since last few years and my aim is definately to serve Hyderabad First Class Team, IPL & India Team in the near future. Keeping my fingers crossed!
