At that time, only one thing was happening: if a player who has not played for India can be selected for how much. There were even many players like me, when they found out about his amount, they they were quite surprised.

He said, “Besides RCB, the Delhi team also wanted to buy me during that time, but then they took away Pradeep Sangwan. Because the Delhi team needed a quick left-arm bowling and they added Sangwan to my place.
