The left-handed all-rounder further said, “It is just the beginning but the feeling was really good because from childhood you tend to dream to play for the country and suddenly when you get a call, it feels great.”

“I was with the India ‘A’ squad when I suddenly got a call from the T20I side,” the all-rounder revealed.

Krunal, like every other budding cricketer, has only one dream—to represent India in the World Cup. “My ultimate goal is to play for the country. To play for India in the World Cup and that is the next goal to be very honest.”

The 27-year-old is confident of his progress and does reckon himself in the mix for next year’s World Cup slated to be held in England and Wales.

“I am going tournament by tournament or you can say match by match and if I do well consistently, I’ll get what I want. So obviously at the end, the ultimate aim is to play the 2019 World Cup for India. I hope the way I am going, I will achieve that as well,” Krunal concluded.
