I am really happy to contribute to this team. I am glad to contribute on both ends of the field (with the bat and ball). It’s been great to be good with both aspects of the game. Trying to improve all the time, and the conditions help my off-spin. It is important to take the award, but it is even more satisfying to win with the Mumbai Indians. Whichever (batting or bowling) is better on that particular day.”
