Regarding his first century, he said after the match “It is very special. It has been 13 years playing IPL. It is very special and I am very happy. At the beginning of the tournament I was hitting the ball, but I was 20- I was unable to convert the score of 30 in the half-century. When you start doing this, your self-confidence grows. I would like to continue this form even further. ”
