A:I have gained maturity quite late into the game and I think that is the reason why.
Q: Why not earlier?Why late?
A: It is what you are thought , when that matters. I was thought the basics of the game in my younger days but I suppose one cannot be thought maturity.
Q:Has your maturity come with age? What have you learnt now that you didn’t know before?
A: No.ow I have learnt to choose which ball to hit when and where earlier. My timing on the focus on the ball has changed and I think that is one thing that has helped me be amongst runs.
Q:Who do you credit for bringing about this change?
A: Chandrakant Chede, anil Arolkar and Nitin Verenkar all helped me.Now i have Hrishikesh Kanitkar and he has been of great help. He has helped me see the game from a different aspect. My performance now is because of him.
Q:How will you differentiate Kanitkar?
A: He is helping me and the team develop our mental strenght. The psychological aspects of the game are being handled well by him. That is why you see a different Goa team this season.
