"I've been a fan of the IPL since I was a kid." There was always a desire to play in the IPL because it is the largest platform available. I am overjoyed to have been chosen by the Delhi Capitals for this year's IPL. I was in my room watching the auction when my name was called. I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to play or not, but learning will always be there. Sharing the stage with some of the game's best players will be a huge learning experience for me," he said.
