“You know, he doesn’t smile, he doesn’t laugh, he is always intense, he’s always grumpy, he’s always walking on the edge, he always has the game face on. People don’t come to watch me smile, they come to watch me win. 

“That’s the kind of profession we are in, I can’t help it. I’m not in entertainment, I’m not a Bollywood actor, not in corporate, I’m a cricketer. I’m into performing art. My job is that I want to come back in a winning dressing room.”
