Uttam sir saw me batting and asked my father to make me take my game seriously. Bihar at that time lost its affiliation and therefore, I came to Jharkhand. I was quite fortunate as when I shifted here in Jharkhand, the open trials were announced where I got selected to play for u-19 and days cricket.

  6. I played under 19 three years back.
