He had to oppose Karnataka on the day of his father’s death. He was much needed by his team when he was even more needed at home. He chose to bat and could score 90 runs even in that gloomy situation. This was remarked by the team captain, Mithun Manhas as an act of great commitment to make his innings crucial.
