Seems like the Mumbaikar has fallen for the capital and why not, he amassed 334 runs at a brilliant average of 33.40 in 10 games. The best part was his strike rate which was 140. He really took the IPL by storm in his first year as a 17-year-old.
Currently, he has also made his India debut in Tests and has also hit his maiden ton against the Windies.
Meanwhile, he is part of the Indian Test squad which is touring Australia. In all probability, he will open the batting in Tests along with seasoned national opener Murali Vijay.
