Now I have improved a lot in my shot selection and I am not facing any problems in batting now. I know what I'm doing. You cannot go this far in your international career without batting well.
You have to be ready to face the toughest conditions on the field and different types of bowling. I know there will be ups and downs in my career, and I will come out of such phases as well. My experience is very important to me.
