Regarding his batting, he said, ‘There was talk against this team that one batsman is less, but I was batting well, the team reposed faith in me and I am happy that I contributed with the bat too. I was talking to Miller about hitting the ball fast. I wanted to take the responsibility while bowling Jordan, I was thinking that even if 20 runs come in this over, then we can win the match.
