Speaking at the presentation ceremony, he dedicates the award to his parents. He Said, "I think it's very heartening for me to do well against a big team on a good stage, in front of a packed crowd. Owe this to my mom and dad. I think keeping things simple makes me do things like this".
He also shared his gratitude to MS Dhoni. "Mahi bhai has been supportive. Right now, I am not looking to be experimental. I am just looking to go there and back myself. I think we could lift the trophy in the finals as well", he added.
