I am now looking forward to sharing the stage with legendary cricketers like AB de Villiers, Chris Gayle and others. It is like a dream come true for me. I qualified for the interview and screening test and signed the contract. I am in Mumbai right now and today was our first rehearsal day. I met international cricketers like Kedar Jadhav and Venkatesh Prasad.
