I think we have played good cricket. I was in the IPL. But I did not get a chance to play in a single match. Despite this, I trusted my skills and performed. I had two plans in bowling. First, if the ball is swinging or seaming then I have to take wickets. Second, if the ball is not moving then I have to bowl in the right area.'
