I have enormous gratitude towards them for being a guiding force and hand holding me, in the formative years of my young career."

He added, "I am full of gratitude to The Gujarat Cricket Association, my home, for solidly rallying around me throughout my journey, and the leadership role conferred upon me couldn't have been more joyous and fulfilling than our team winning all formats of the game."
