The Indian captain stressed on the need to develop a good team culture from the first day.
“I can’t wait to get to our first practice session, something that we all are going to cherish. An opportunity to create a good team culture from Day 1.
“For me it’s all about what can I do to create an environment where everyone feels a part of the team equally and everyone feels responsible for where we want to go equally,” he said.
“And I think all of us have to contribute towards that. Firstly the seniors in the team. So lets start things on the right note.”
