Now my focus is on doing even better for my new IPL team, says Ravi Shastri
Lucknow franchise has made their retentions for the upcoming season as they roped KL Rahul, Ravi Bishnoi and Marcus Stoinis. Moreover, the right-arm leggie has made his statement for his new IPL team and said, "It’s a proud moment for me, my coaches and family as I am one of those few players among the world’s best picked by the franchise before the mega auction.
Aur mereko lagta hain Rahul bhai ne bola hoga mere liye (I have a feeling Rahul must have suggested my name to the Lucknow franchise management). Now my focus is on doing even better for my new IPL team and helping them win games.
With Rahul bhai leading Lucknow, I feel it will be easier for me to adjust in the new team as I have already played under him," Ravi Bishnoi was quoted by The Times of India.
"Money matters, but it is more important for any young player to get an opportunity to play at this level and showcase his skill. Paisa baad main bhi kamaya jaa sakta hain (money can be earned later as well)," Bishnoi added.
"I do not wish to clutter my thinking about the upcoming T20 World Cup selection. The opportunity in front of me is to play for Lucknow and that is my focus at present. Doing well here will to a lot of extent play a role in what happens next," he further added.
