“There are a lot of things that I try to do like AB. I want to have my head still the way he does in each shot,” Mandeep was quoted as saying by iplt20.com.

“I have learn a lot from him and whatever he has taught me, I have straightaway incorporated those things in my game. It is already helping me in my game and I can see a lot of positive results in my batting,” he said.

“I have worked on the balance of my head. Initially when I was playing my shots, the completion of the shot would end with my head leaning towards the off-stump.” he added.

Speaking about sharing batting space with de Villiers in the century stand, Mandeep said, “When we were just around 60 runs in ten overs, we just wanted to bat and try to build a partnership from there on. We wanted to keep things simple and watch the ball closely and hit it. I knew if AB spent a little more time in the middle, he would get ruthless in the end. I had the confidence that AB would see us through.”
