“It hasn’t been an easy decision. I asked myself several questions. What do I want to do now or what do I want to achieve in the next two years, five years, 10 years?” he told Cricbuzz. He also credits his fiancee Mary Margaret for playing a part in his life despite being born and raised in the USA. He also mentioned that Mary had sacrificed a lot for him.
