Speaking about his experience of bowling to the South African stars, the youngster further added “The way these batters do their shot selection and immediately pick up line and length is something I learned immediately as a bowler. You need to be on the top of your game and continuously improve. These are few lessons I learnt because batters at international level are always skilled enough to take you on.”
