I have been recognized for my performances in the recent past. I was not expecting this, not at any point, but maybe, my performances earned me this reward. I feel pretty happy about it but the focus remains to perform for India and leave my impact on every game that I play. My dad informed me about the promotion. He is the one actually who is pretty active on social media. He sent me the team list and said not to take any kind of pressure and enjoy my game. I had to pinch myself to believe this. I don’t carry any extra pressure and I just focus on enjoying my game. 

The Indian selectors made lots of enormous changes in the ODI as well as the T20I format. Stalwarts like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are not a part of the T20I team and Hardik Pandya has been assigned with the captaincy role. As far as the ODIs are concerned, Hardik will be India’s vice-captain despite KL Rahul’s presence in the side. Rishabh Pant has been relaxed for both formats, whereas Shikhar Dhawan has lost his spot in the ODI side.
