“If I am not picked in the World Cup squad, it’s their call, I cannot do much about it. I always try to perform for the team and play according to the situation of a match,” he added.

“I think I didn’t play one one-day series, I mean I was not part of the team in the series against Sri Lanka at home. I don’t know why I wasn’t picked then, but I have been part of all other ODI series in the last 2 years.

“Whenever I get an opportunity, I try to contribute to the team’s success whether it’s with bat, ball, or in fielding. At the end of the day, I should be happy that I have made an effort, my performances should be impactful whichever department it is,” he added.
