Just believe in yourself and your skills and try to get out of the wicket a bit).

Khelana bas thoda sa kaj ki zarurat hai length (ko control karane ki).
Bas agar usko control car lenge to hum dunya pe raj karenge (I also have a piece of advice for you. You have a lot of talent, future looks bright. I don’t think it’s easy to play with the speed you have. Against. Just control your line and length a bit. Work. Then, you can conquer the world).”
