He said that it has always been a proud moment for him that in the dressing room he got the support of players like Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, Gautam Gambhir, and Yuvraj Singh. He especially wants to thank Sachin Tendulkar sir because he encouraged me to move ahead in my cricket career.
Rahul Sharma is now making up his mind to play in the World Cricket League and he has written that I am very eager to play in the league, happy about the start of my second innings.
