He has been a part of my cricket experience of the 90s and early 2000’s. So, when I landed the part, I thought that I should read up everything about Ravi sir. I’ve been watching all his interviews and videos to get his body language right. I’ve also been playing cricket for five months now, and the focus is to pick up his style. It’s challenging because I am a natural right-arm, and he was a left-arm bowler. I’m also working on my diction and his style of speaking.”
