Speaking exclusively to Sportskeeda, Nathan Ellis said, “I have had some really good conversations with Arshdeep Singh about death bowling. He is someone who seems good at moving on, which is such a huge asset as a death bowler. It’s just the enjoyment of life that I think I have learned the best from the Punjab setup.”

“One thing that I have taken from Punjab is that win, lose, or draw, there are a lot of happy faces and happy people. I would say, spiritual people. They are very good at accepting the good, the bad, and the ugly and just getting on with life. And there’s no better example of that than Shikhar Dhawan,” he further added.

However, Nathan Ellis has been impressed by just how the Punjab Kings accept tough results and how they make sure that the team environment remains right no matter what the result is. Ellis also added that PBKS skipper Shikhar Dhawan leads by example when
it comes to not letting results affect the vibe of the team as well.

“Initially (last year) I came and expected not to play with the star-studded line-up we had overseas. So for me, it was all about being ready to go whenever the opportunity came. Thankfully I did okay and that’s the learning, being physically and mentally ready is the key. I have the same sort of mindset this season. My role is to be a good team man and have some sort of an impact on the team, whether it’s on the days off, after dinner, or at training. So that’s me at the moment,” Nathan Ellis concluded.
