"Being a former international cricketer of the modern era, he brings a lot of experience with him and our players are looking forward to learning from him," Kabak said.
Mongia said that he has to create a formula to make the aspiring cricketers understand what real cricket is. "There will be a challenge for sure. These young players are slightly lagging behind, so with my experience and knowledge, I will help these guys improve their game," he said.
