"I am glad to be given this wonderful opportunity of being a Shiksha Superhero and support the cause of education by P&G Shiksha. It is great to see that over the last 12 years, 1000 schools have been built and supported which will impact over 10 lakh children."

In my life, I am thankful to my education that gave me the discipline and drive to follow my dreams and has played a very important role in moulding me as an individual and a cricketer," he added.
