It's a really good shot in cricket. I was like, well look, what I did. But people didn't appreciate it. In cricket when you run, you always take your bat with you. So I also ran between base with my bat as well. So eventually, I realised baseball was a bit difficult. I can adjust on many things, but I'm going to stick to cricket,"
