We got good cooperation from the support staff. Our captain… I spoke to Virat bhai also, Hardik bhai… everyone helped me. I also spoke to KP who said to keep things simple. Said that I should do the same way as I bat, watch the videos of the last season. I watched some videos of my batting and got confidence from them.
