In an interview with The New Indian Express, the 26-year-old had said batting with the same mindset has helped him.

“I have not done anything special to get these four tons. Just, I have been watching the ball and playing judiciously. I have been trying to improve my game every single day. What perhaps could have helped me is the fact that when I go out to bat, I try to have the same mindset," he was quoted as saying by the daily.
