When one has an aim to reach at the top, every step matters. Mandeep Singh was not a well-known cricketing figure before he displayed a world-class performance in the fifth season of the IPL. He bagged the up-coming player of the year award and today, he received the best ever news of his life. He has been named in the 30-member list of probables for the September-October World Twenty20 Championships.
“I had a gala time in the last season of IPL and it was a nice experience to play at such a platform. Right now I am working on many aspects and my selection has given me a real boost. Hopefully I will impress the selectors after giving my best at the camp” said Mandeep.
“My coach, Vikram Rathore, and my family members have stood by me in all times and I hope I will make them proud,” added Mandeep.
When asked about the upcoming camp, he said: “It will be great exposure but on the same time there will be a great competition. I will focus on all aspects to overcome every hurdle. It will be great learning experience under senior players and expert coaches.
On the shorter version of the game, he said: “The T-20 format is a quick and unpredictable format of cricket. You can be a star in one go but it has the power to dull your image, if you not perform well under pressure. Game is all about bearing pressure. And T20 is the best platform for the newcomers,” he said.
