I am seeing him play for Team India in all three formats very soon,” Ranveer Singh was quoted as saying in a statement issued by Star Sports,
Ranveer also praised RCB captain Faf du Plessis for leading his team from the front. “Du Plessis is one of the most exciting batsmen in the world. It is a pleasure to watch him play. When he opens the mouth of his bat it is poetry in motion,” he said.
