“I don’t think it is always about to keep adding to your arsenal, it is also about being good at what you do,” he added.
Speaking about Rashid Khan, he praised the spinner for his exceptional performance in the shortest format of the game.
“Rashid has been amazing in this format all over the world. He has been playing in a different league, performing consistently, and having him in the mix is always a delight for any team.
