This is what he had to say on her in-swing capabilities
“I had a few interactions with her when I was injured at NCA. She was also there and she was bowling to me. And I was challenged by her in-swinger. So, there was lots of interaction there. She was asking for some stuff and I was telling her some stuff. Whenever I have seen her play, she has shown so much passion for playing for the country. I don’t know how old she is, but even at this stage, she is running in hard and trying to knock the opposition out and that tells you something. So, it tells you the passion she has. I can only wish her the best. She is a once-in-a-generation player,”
