He was the part of the MI side which won their first IPL title. He played for them in the next season as well and won them a close encounter against the Rajasthan Royals to qualify for the playoffs.


He was part of the New Zealand side which played the 2015 edition of World Cup. He played a crucial role in the side ending the tournament as runner ups.

He was prone to injuries as he always had back issues, groin injuries and various other issues. This issues increased after the 2015 World Cup. Due to this, he was always in and out of the team due to injuries. He hasn’t played for the New Zealand side since 2018 December.

He decided to move on from New Zealand as he didn’t feel that he’ll make comeback to the NZ side. He was thankful to the NZ cricket side and to the fans from New Zealand.

He feels that the cricket in USA is quite interesting as he has been watching few games which have been quite close matches.  He needs to feature in both  Major and Minor League Cricket. He also has to do coaching at the MLC.
