" Cricket has taught me a lot. I faced real life, high-pressure situations. You have to make runs and there is just one ball left. If you make one wrong move, one wrong footwork, you will not get another chance. These kind of situations make you alert and aware about real life situations.

It also helps you make quick decisions, because on the cricket ground, you don't have time to think. You have to decide on the spot in seconds. This game teaches you many things: patience, endurance. It also taught you about failure and success. When you play, you tune your mind to success. Similarly, in life, when you feel a bad phase in life, you feel that you can overcome it.
