What are the other important things that keep you busy when not playing
I love playing football, tennis & skating apart from cricket. Also, I love reading books.
Tell us about your everyday fitness regime?
My regime is mostly off-season, because that’s when I can put in the extra hours. It’s very difficult to put in that time when the season starts. Of course, then it is about maintaining fitness by doing weights in the gym and very light running. But running is something that is always required.
What is your diet routine like?
I concentrate on eating good carbs and more of protein. I take brown rice instead of normal rice and use gluten-free atta instead of wheat roti. Sticking to this diet helps me maintain good health and stay fit.
What is your motivation factor?
My motivation comes from within. I am one of those who believe in fighting hard and never giving up. My mother is my biggest strength and gives me immense courage.
