One over gave recognition

He said that he was a fan of Mumbai, had Mumbai’s wallpaper in his phone and then he got a chance to play with this team. He recalled his debut and said that he was not nervous that day as he got only one over and knew that it was his first match and hence did not expect much from him.

He owes his success & career to that one over he faced on debut!
