CRICKET- Shreyas Gopal who finished the league stage of Indian Premier League (IPL) as the most prolific Indian bowler (he took 20 wickets for Rajasthan Royals) has come out as one of the most promising players.

Talking about how he managed to take the big wickets for the Royals, Shreyas explained, “You can’t be defensive and as a leg-spinner especially it is important to keep attacking and be aggressive. The mindset always has to lean towards taking wickets.

“When you get the better off some of the best players in the game – it feels surreal and gives you the confidence against your next opponents. It all goes back to square one – trust your plans, the trust increases.”

Shreyas, 25, has taken 184 wickets in first-class cricket.
