Every time I’ve met Rishabh, I’ve always told him that people are talking about you because you’ve talent in you.

If you had no talent and if you weren’t talented, people wouldn’t have been talking about you, so keep that in mind. Sometimes, you have to go back to domestic cricket and just get that form back,” he explained.
