"I am working hard and there is nothing tough in life, if you enjoy your process and enjoy your cricket and I have always done that," he said.



"When I got injured that was a difficult time of my life. So it (the comeback) is nothing and I am enjoying it and things will come in my time," the former Chennai Super Kings player said.
