Kolkata Knight Riders pacer Prasidh Krishna recently made his debut for India during the series against England at home. The right-arm fast bowler became the first Indian to pick up four wickets on his ODI debut.
The quick bowler in an interaction with the KKR’s official website explained how playing for the country has added to his confidence.
“It's been a great experience to have made my debut for India. It's a dream come true for any cricketer. In terms of the praise I have been getting, it only adds to my confidence levels and I look forward to taking it ahead from here," he said.
Krishna further told that being in the Indian dressing room has helped him add up more skills to his armour.
“Every single game that I was a part of, I tried to be at my best. There was no specific variation that I had been working on, but I did learn some important lessons while playing for Team India,” he said.
The pacer said that skipper Virat Kohli and other senior members calmed him down during the pressure situation and it helped him eventually. “At the beginning of the match where I made my debut, there was a bit of pressure. But Virat and the other seniors told me to always be on the front foot, and it worked well,” he said.
The Kolkata franchise begins their IPL 2021 campaign against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Chennai on Sunday. KKR have lifted the trophy twice in the earlier editions under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir.
