“Prabhsimran is one to watch out for. His backlift and bat swing is free flowing. When the ball hits his bat, and the sound it creates is quite amazing,” Tendulkar lauded the PBKS in a video shared on Twitter.

I was just trying to grab my opportunity. The wicket was a little difficult because it was turning. I was thinking to build a partnership with Sam and then wanted to target the bowlers.
