The Men in Blue entered into the semi-finals as group winners with a 71-run win at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

On Monday, he explained the reason behind his success as he admitted that he enjoys batting on fast, bouncy pitches and that Australian conditions were not a problem for him because he practices heavily on similar surfaces at Wankhede Stadium back home. He said:

"Everyone asks me that what are your preparations since you have never been to Australia. It has fast, bouncy pitches and big grounds. I have practiced a lot at Wankhede. The track there has a great bounce and is fast in nature. I have always enjoyed batting on these surfaces. I enjoy batting on big grounds since I see those big pockets and gaps, I hit the ball through them or run hard if there is a need," 

SKY said that he is currently enjoying his batting and only sees gaps while coming out to bat. He added: "I try to play the format. It is about the intent with which you come out. I try to get runs on every ball,"

The Indian side will now take on  England in the semi-final at the Adelaide Cricket Ground on Thursday (November 10).
